A passenger died on Wednesday following an accident whilst boarding Queen Elizabeth cruise ship from a tender, British/American owned cruise line Cunard informed.

The cruise ship was in Sihanoukville, a deep-water port city in Cambodia, when the incident occurred.

“Two of our crew members reacted very quickly and jumped in to rescue her. She was then taken to the medical centre but despite our very best efforts she died,” the company said. “Our customer care team is fully involved and will be offering every support including to those passengers who witnessed the incident.”

The ship is currently under way from Sihanoukville to Singapore within its 117-day world cruise.

MS Queen Elizabeth is a vista-class cruise ship, the second largest ship to be constructed for Cunard. It is capable of carrying up to 2,092 passengers.

Singapore Maritime Week 2016

Singapore Maritime Week (SMW) is the leading maritime event in Singapore. Driven by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), SMW gathers the international maritime community in Singapore for a week of conferences, dialogues, exhibitions and social events in celebration of all things maritime. The range of activities and events organised by MPA, the industry and research and educational institutions, as well as the cosmopolitan profile of participants, reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Singapore as a major international maritime centre.

SMW has grown in size and significance since the inaugural event in 2006, and is attracting more participants and event organisers from around the world. Participants can experience something new every year. As activities are added to the line-up, and as eminent speakers share their insights and participate in dialogues on topical maritime issues. This dynamism and the good range of issues discussed during SMW are major for maritime decision-makers, as are the many business networking platforms.

This is why Singapore Maritime Week is all about People, Ideas and Opportunities for the maritime community.

Celebrate all things maritime!

Singapore Maritime Week 2016, 17-22 April
