A Carnival crew member has tragically passed away on board Carnival Ecstasy.
Michael Bryan Agadier Abinsay, 32, from San Narciso in the Philippines, passed away earlier this month. According to multiple reports, Abinsay went to his crew cabin onboard the Carnival Ecstasy to take a rest and never woke up.
Unofficial sources said he died from a sudden cardiac arrest while sleeping in his bed.
Abinsay’s fellow crew members alerted the ship’s medical staff who “quickly” responded to the scene, reports say. However, it was too late.
Carnival Corporation provided the following statement to Travel Weekly: “We can confirm that one of our team members passed away earlier this month, but will not be sharing any additional details.
“On behalf of the entire Carnival family, we offer our most sincere condolences to the team member’s family, friends and loved ones.”
