One was a 20 something & a 64 yr old woman ..unrelated they said
we always seem to have a death or medical emergency on the cruise we are on
We did the Panama in March & a man died his body was taken off in Costa Rica
Last Panama trip in 2007 we has a medical emergency had to have a lady taken off near Cartegena ..she was in renal failure
I think some people go on a cruise as their dying wish
