Two cruise passengers were found dead on a Royal Caribbean ship that sailed out of New Jersey for Puerto Rico.

The line said in a statement that two guests aboard Anthem of the Seas had died on Tuesday and Wednesday (November 29 and 30) during the first leg of its voyage, from Bayonne to San Juan.

Puerto Rico’s El Nuevo Dia identified the men as 62-year-old Joseph Ambrussi of New Jersey and William Forsytte, 55, of Pennsylvania.

Both men were with their wives, and Royal Caribbean said they died of natural causes.

The majority of cruise ship deaths, roughly 200 a year, are from age-related illnesses, according to a 2015 report in The Telegraph.
