A woman was found dead under suspicious circumstances aboard a Princess Cruises ship sailing in the Caribbean on Tuesday, the cruise line said.

Meanwhile, fellow passengers aboard the Royal Princess are discussing what could have happened on a cruise ship message board.

The FBI and authorities in Aruba are investigating whether the tragic death of an American woman on a Caribbean cruise was an accident or a crime. "The cause of death is not yet known at this time", Royal Princess told the newspaper in the statement.

The Royal Princess left Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Friday and is expected to return on Saturday.

While authorities await autopsy results, the investigative work on board the ship appears to be complete.

The name of the victim and the man taken off the boat have not been released. MasNoticia.com, an Aruba-based media outlet, also reported the death was being probed as a possible murder case. Later in the morning, another alert came through, telling passengers "there was a serious incident and no one could leave as local authorities were coming onboard". Authorities have yet to confirm that report.

A second source added: "We can literally see the lifeboat from our room".

Police officers and forensic specialists are investigating the possibility she was deliberately killed during an altercation with a man, Aruba's Diario stated. The FBI has since joined the investigation. In a statement to CBS News, Princess Cruises said, "we are deeply saddened by this incident and offer our honest condolences to the family and those affected".
