GALVESTON — The FBI is investigating the death of a 32-year-old woman whose body was discovered in her stateroom aboard a Carnival cruise ship that docked in Galveston on Saturday. The woman, whose name was not released, died Monday a FBI spokeswoman said.
The woman, believe to be a Brazoria County resident, was aboard the Carnival Ecstasy which set sail from Galveston Feb. 15. The FBI was notified on Monday that she had died and agents flew to the ship’s next port of call, Progresso, Mexico on Tuesday, FBI Special Agent Shauna Dunlap said.
Dunlap called the investigation routine to determine if the woman’s death was a result of foul play. The woman’s body was taken to the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office after the ship docked at the Port of Galveston early Saturday morning.
The medical examiner’s office referred all questions to the FBI.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
Thanks Phil & Liz. Well you know nosy me when it comes to the Conquest or Ecstacy: I'm going to try to find out some details.
This one is interesting and I bet a lot more will come out early next week if not sooner. I've heard two completely different stories all the way from natural causes to murder. The medical examiner will make a determination, but it is being investigated by a local agency as a possible homicide.
I've found some photos of the lady and from what I have found out she was a very nice person. Her local news may break story first. Very sad.

However, she died, I feel so bad for her family. There's no good way to lose a loved one.
A cruise ship is a microcosm of society and anything can happen on it. There is likely at least one thief, one murderer and/or one rapist on every cruisel Criminals takes vacations too, and it could very well be YOUR vacation he/she is on.
