A passenger has died on a Royal Caribbean ship that was on a nine-month “Ultimate World Cruise.” The ship left Miami and a spokesperson for Royal Caribbean confirmed that a passenger on board the Serenade of the Seas had died. The company is providing support and assistance to the guest’s family at this time, and due to privacy, no further details were shared about the passenger’s identity or the circumstances surrounding their death.
The journey of the Serenade of the Seas began in December 2023 with a planned 274-night, seven-continent voyage that includes stops at 60 countries and 11 world wonders. The ship has already passed through Mexico, the Caribbean, Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador on its South America leg. It has now started its Asia Pacific leg, which will see it travel through Hawaii, Polynesia, and Australia.
