The unrecognized crew members passed away on Friday when Nieuw Amsterdam was at Half Moon Cay located in the Bahamas, per Holland America’s statement.

The cruise line informed that authorities had been notified and that the reason for the accident was being investigated. Crew members have also been offered counselling.

The team at Holland America Line is extremely saddened by this incident and expressed that their thoughts and prayers are with the team members’ loved ones in such a difficult time. The firm’s top priority is crew members’ and guests’ security, safety, and welfare.
