An 87-year-old cruise ship passenger aboard Holland America’s Oosterdam died Thursday.
Juneau police responded in port and identified the woman as Corrine J. Underwood of Missouri. She was traveling with her daughter.
Lt. David Campbell described her as chronically ill. He couldn’t disclose specifics because of medical privacy laws, but says, “It looks like (a) rather lengthy medical history going back quite a while here, so looks as though it was probably natural causes.”
He says there were no signs of foul play.
