Cruise Ship Deaths: FBI Investigating Woman's Death Aboard Vessel In Alaska

Passengers say they didn't know the 39-year-old Utah woman was dead in a room.

Time reports the suspect was taken into custody late Wednesday and is expected to be charged today in what federal authorities are calling a domestic dispute that led to the Tuesday night death of a woman aboard the Emerald Princess in US waters off Alaska.

The Emerald Princess, carrying 3,400 passengers and 1,100 crew members, is on a seven-day round-trip cruise to Alaska from Seattle.

Cruise passengers told KSTU they heard the couple fighting around 9 p.m. on Tuesday. As of right now, the passengers are supposed to still be able to leave the ship and go on excursions, but authorities will be doing the investigation before they are allowed to do so.

"It was in water outside of any state's territory", Feger-Pellessier said.

The office says the news conference will include representatives of the FBI and the Coast Guard, agencies that were involved in the investigation. Although few details have been released about the situation, Princess Cruises officials said the dispute occurred at around 9 p.m. and resulted in the woman's death, ABC reports. The ship docked in Juneau, Alaska, on Wednesday morning.

"Court documents say a man entered the cabin and saw the woman on the floor covered in blood", according to the news wire.

The incident happened in USA waters off Alaska. Some were wearing white and gray hooded sweat shirts, with hoods or umbrellas in some cases obscuring their faces.

Deaths on board cruise ships have occurred in the past.

Several thousand passengers are stuck on a cruise ship docked in Alaska's capital city as authorities investigate the death of a 39-year-old Utah woman following a domestic dispute aboard the vessel.

Princess Cruises offered condolences to those affected but referred all questions regarding the incident to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Emerald Princess, on a one-week cruise out of Seattle since July 23, had been scheduled to make a scenic cruise of Tracy Arm Fjord on Wednesday.

A Princess Cruises spokeswoman would not confirm if passengers would be offered compensation but said "conversations" were taking place.
