11: Bernardo Garcia Teixeira
November, 2015: Bernardo Garcia Teixeira is aboard Royal Caribbean Cruises’ Oasis of the Seas with his partner Erik Elbaz. It was supposed to be an enjoyable vacation for the married gay couple, but instead it quickly turned sour as they got into a heated argument with each other in their cabin. As the fighting got louder, security was called to handle the situation. In the midst of the chaos, Garcia Teixeira ran and jumped off the balcony of his room on the seventh level deck, landing on a lifeboat below. The man held on for a minute as his partner and staff members tried rescuing him. Unfortunately Garcia Teixeira lost his grip and fell to his debt. The whole scene was witnessed by other passengers, with at least one passenger recording it. The uploaded footage went viral on YouTube before being removed. The couple's family attorney insisted that the incident was preceded by anti-gay slurs from the ship's crew towards the gay couple. Royal Carribean Cruise CCO refuted the accusations, saying that his crew members risked their lives trying to save the man's life.
Number 10: Rosanna Rossato
November, 2015: 75-year-old Italian woman Rosanna Rossato casually boarded the ship MSC Opera. The woman had been ill for quite some time, and for the whole trip remained on the sidelines, not participating in any of the leisure activities available on board. Upon landing in the port of Genoa, no trace of her was to be found. The alarm went off but despite searches, only her suitcase was to be found with no trace of the pensioner anywhere. Her family was then notified of her disappearance. It was at this point that her husband found three farewell letters she had left behind on the bedside table at home. Their daughter said she received a text message from her mother the night before, which simply said, "forgiveness". It was concluded that she ended her own life by jumping overboard on the last night of the 13-day cruise across the Mediterranean.
9: John Banner and Darla Mellinger
April, 2015: Salem couple John Banner and Darla Mellinger, are aboard Holland America Line's Ryndam for a 14-day Caribbean Cruise. The retired couple had just got married six months earlier, with reports describing a romantic marriage proposal during a sunset carriage ride at Passion Island in Cozumel, Mexico. During the cruise however, the cleaning crew found the couple dread in their cabin right before the ship docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Blonde was found on the scene in what investigators presumed was an apparent martyr sewer side case. It was later discovered that the wife had been sent to the hospital several months earlier with a stag wound to the center of her chest just days before the couple’s honeymoon. At that time, the husband claimed the incident as nothing but an accident in which he tripped over a throw rug while trying to show his wife an old military dagger from his collection of war relics.
8: Micheal Moses Ward
Back in 1985, news headlines were made when the black liberation group MOVE was put down in a violent standoff against the Philadelphia Police Department. 13-year-old Micheal Moses Ward (aka “Birdie Africa”) was only one of two survivors from a fire caused by police that filled off the rest of the members of the radical group that day. His luck would eventually come to an end however. In September of 2013, Birdie—who had now been known as Micheal Moses Ward—was on a Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Dream with his extended family. While extremely drunk, he slid beneath the water of a hot tub and drowned. Passengers who saw the body initially did not react, saying they thought it was a "painting".
To make matters worse, the nurse who obtained a defibrillator to resuscitate him was hesitant to use it, unsure of the safety due to his wet body. The official cause of debt was drowning due to extreme intoxication.
7: Rebecca Coriam
March, 2011: 24-year-old Rebecca Coriam disappears with no trace from the Disney Wonder cruise ship. The British woman was working as a child minder on the ship during its cruise between California and Mexico. British police said that since the ship was registered in the Bahamas, they were unable to investigate the case as it was out of their jurisdiction. Investigations from the Royal Bahamas Police were severely inadequate, having interviewed only six witnesses before dropping the case, stating that she had simply fallen overboard. Evidence, however, points that a crime may well have taken place.
