Two passengers died in one night
Two elderly British passengers died aboard the "Marella Explorer" while enroute from Iceland to Dublin on Sep 15, 2019. Both cases were treated as not suspicious. One of the elderly men was travelling on his own while the other was on board with a relative. The deaths were not being considered as suspicious. The deceased were on the final leg of their journey and were expected to return to Southampton after spending a final day in Dublin. The Dublin City Coroner will be taking care of post mortems on the two bodies at the city mortuary. The passenger’s relatives were making arrangements to bring their remains back to the UK. The Former Lord Mayor Nial Ring offered his sympathies to the pensioners’ families.
