Bodies of two Finnish passengers have been discovered on a cruise ferry operated by Estonian shipping company Tallink Grupp while it was anchored at the Port of Tallinn, Estonia.

“There have been two death cases on our ship Silja Europa last Saturday-Sunday night,” a spokesperson for Tallink told World Maritime News.

The spokesperson added that the two incidents were unrelated.

As informed, a 25-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man were traveling on a 22-hour cruise from Helsinki, Finland, to Tallinn, Estonia, and back to Helsinki.

The first body was found at around 3:31 a.m. on October 20 and the second at 4:41 a.m. in their cabins.

Local media reported that there were no signs of violence and the two cabins were not located close to each other.

The deceased persons were discovered by passengers on board the ship who then informed police and ambulance.

An investigation into the incident has been launched.

The 59,914 GT Silja Europa operates on the Helsinki-Tallinn route. Built in 1993, the 202-meter-long ship can accommodate more than 3,000 passengers.
