On February 11, 2024, a distressing incident occurred aboard the Serenade Of The Seas as it approached Port Long Beach, Los Angeles, California. An elderly female passenger was found deceased in her stateroom, marking a somber moment for her family and fellow passengers.

Details of the Incident

The deceased, an elderly woman, was reported just before the ship arrived in Los Angeles. Royal Caribbean indicated that she was part of a segment of the cruise’s itinerary and not the entire duration of the Ultimate World Cruise. This cruise, spanning 274 days, has about 800 passengers on its full journey, with many others joining for specific legs.

Operational Context

The incident took place during the “Ultimate World Cruise,” a significant voyage from December 10, 2023, to September 10, 2024, starting and concluding in Miami, Florida. The cruise includes various ports of call around the world, with the passenger’s journey ending prematurely in California.
