I was in Mauritius when she called there. The joke was some of the husbands had died and rather than give up the cruise the widows had them put into cold storage.

Sean - you are welcome and thanks for the input - regarding the cold storage of folk who have crossed the bar - i have a discussion on another shipping group - as to whether the cruise ships of today have the facility or not - my understanding is they have - i recall the mermoz having to make an unscheduled call to durban - to offload a passenger who had passed away while on the cruise - i was waiting for my first cruise ship to call - and when the mermoz arrived got all excited to no avail !

On the Royal Viking Star (1970's) we had a custom made freezer in the forepeak with three lockers for the deceased..

According to an online blog about the French Line, three people all male died on her 1972 World Cruise.

Regarding the cold storage or morgues on modern day cruise ships, the majority of them have such facilities. The Cunard vessel's certainly have them especially so with the QUEEN MARY 2.

I remember on the 1985 world cruise on-board the QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 we had eight deaths in total which more or less filled the morgue which could only fit 10 bodies. I can't remember the exact ages or sex of the deceased but it was rather a high amount in comparison to other world cruises.

Eight deaths on one cruise does seem on the high side...

In my three years on the Royal Viking Star (1973 - 1976) we only had two deaths, one passenger who committed suicide and the bosun who had a heart attack just as we were leaving Acapulco, Mexico. No passenger deaths from natural causes in three years seems remarkable considering the average age of the passengers who used the Royal Viking Line. Although we did evacuate a quite a few very sick passengers ...........
