“As we are working with the relevant authorities and to protect the family’s privacy, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
This death follows another tragedy earlier this year on Mystery Island.
In May, a passenger on Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Splendor died while swimming.
At the time, the company said in a statement that “Carnival Cruise Line is deeply saddened by the death of a guest on Mystery Island, following what appears to be a medical situation while he was swimming.”
A passenger on the ship told 7NEWS he died while snorkeling.
Mystery Island is a popular stop with tourists visiting Vanuatu and is famous for its beaches, clear blue waters and corals.
