In a statement, the company spokesperson said the passenger fell from their balcony and landed on another person on the lower deck.
According to Virgin Voyages, the first passenger died of their injuries but the second one was not seriously hurt.
“We are deeply saddened by this loss of life and our hearts and thoughts are with this person’s loved ones,” the cruise line’s statement said.
