A 32-year-old Florida man has been arrested in the Bahamas after a woman was found dead on a cruise ship.

Around 5:30 p.m. local time on Monday, the Royal Bahamas Police Force was contacted with reports of an unresponsive passenger on board a cruise ship on the island of Grand Bahama, according to a police report. Authorities have not disclosed the name of the cruise line.

A female passenger, later identified as a 27-year-old woman, also from Florida, had been found unresponsive in her cabin on the ship, and after a medical team responded to the scene and performed CPR, she was pronounced dead, per police.

Upon investigating, the Royal Bahamas Police Force “confiscated a quantity of suspected cocaine” from the female passenger’s cabin. They also arrested the 32-year-old man.
