Can't they just dump em over the side?

Just use 'em as shark bait. They could even make it a show for the other guests.

in September 2013, British journalist Sir David Frost died aboard the Cunard cruise liner the Queen Elizabeth, on which he was booked as a speaker. A source told The Telegraph that the ship's guests "were mostly British and took the sad news without emotion."

Meanwhile, the Americans were requesting partial refunds.

Seems pretty inefficient to keep the body so far from the kitchen when some orders "captain's steak".

Seems pretty inconsiderate to go on a cruise ship and die. They obviously booked a cabin that could have otherwise been taken up by a healthy living person.

That's because the rats need exercise too.

My uncle recently died on a cruise ship, so I'm (not) really getting a kick...

The most unusual aspect of having someone pass away on a cruise ship is getting the body back home.

You would think that there would be a set procedure...

In a break from the usual - may you truly find solace in the wake of his loss, and may his memory overcome any struggles along the way....

//That does sound like a territorial minefield just getting the remains....

Unlike "Weekend at Bernie's" the cruise lines are not amateurs.

Few people know that cruise buffet salad dressing, especially Ranch, makes a fine embalming fluid although a tad on the weak side.  So do the Italian and Vinegar based products.  The biggest problem is that an open coffin funeral will make everyone ravenous and so the after party need serious snacks.

It's apparently legal to do a burial at sea.  There's a few stipulations about distance from shore and depth, but you still can legally do it.

I thought about it.  It's pretty natural when you think about it.

Every wife of mine that ever died on a cruise was given a burial at sea, so I'm getting a kick out of the replies.

My grandfather referred to Frost as "that goddamned Englishman."   Of course, him being Irish, always preceded English with goddammed.

Imagine how popular cruises would be if they could guarantee nobody would ever die aboard.
 
2022-11-29 11:45:57 AM  
I just assumed that the dead bodies was a rich guy thing.

"Elon will take the whole Lido deck. He requires six bodies for the duration. Please make sure the are at least 35c or he will refuse to feed."

I don't really know what the procedure is exactly, but I worked with a guy that, after he retired, he started a "corpse transport" business driving corpses around the country from wherever the person died to wherever his or her final resting place was going to be. Had a nondescript Ram van with a chilled/insulated rear cargo section and when a funeral home would call, he would drive to where the body was, pick it up and then drive it to where it was supposed to go. Sometimes it was across the state or sometimes it was across the country. He said there's a lot of those types of things going down the road that the average person has no clue about.

I'm sorry for your loss. *hug*

If there was a set procedure, the cruise line would be paying for it. People have to go with which way to go depending on what they can afford. Tragic but true.

I wonder if there's traveler's insurance that covers something like this? Seems likely since many people travel a lot.

Nothing about a cruise appeals to me. Not even the blues or rock and roll ones, and I love music and am a gregarious extrovert.
