Default 2 passengers died (unrelated, not suspicious) on Norwegian Dawn

The deaths are not suspicious and are unrelated (67 year old woman, and a 23 year old man). They are reporting that both are from natural causes. The cruise was a 7 day Bermuda cruise out of Boston on 10/21.

Well, since the Dawn docks in Boston, this made our news. In an interview with two passengers, one said, well in any city of 4,000 people, you have deaths..why shouldn't it be the same on a ship?

The other passenger, said she was surprised, and it was frightening. Huh??? Frightening is not a word I would put forth, with 2 natural deaths on board.

There are usually one or possibly "multpile" deaths on every cruise, and, you never hear about it, unless you dined in the same area, or knew someone who knew someone.....not headline news.

I think the "frightening" portion of the situation might be hearing there was a death on board and not knowing whether there was foul play. Some people of naturally very frightened.
