A 52-year-old American woman aboard a Princess Cruises ship sailing in the Caribbean died Tuesday in what authorities are treating as a possible murder case, according to several news outlets in the region.

"It was reported to the local authorities who met and boarded the ship upon arrival".

"Princess Cruises can confirm that a 52-year-old, American, female guest passed away early Tuesday morning aboard Royal Princess as the ship was en route to Aruba", the cruise line told Fox News in a statement. The FBI is also carrying out its own investigation. The cause of death is not yet known at this time.

According to USA Today, the Royal Princess was cruising through the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is set to return to the city Saturday. That's where police boarded the ship after the incident was reported.

The woman had previously been seen in an altercation with a male passenger where she was allegedly being choked, Aruba news outlet Diario reported.

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

On Facebook, a passenger wrote to Princess Cruises, "The lady that died hit the lifeboat outside our [balcony] on Emerald deck ..." The announcement was a criminal investigation was to be conducted before we are given clearance.

"We are cooperating fully with the investigating authorities, including the FBI", Princess Cruises said in a statement.

A ship belonging to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines is anchored off Labadee Beach, near Cap Haitian, Haiti, as passengers enjoy the water, February 2, 2000.

An autopsy will reportedly be done to determine the woman's cause of death, the Curaçao Chronicle reported.

Princess Royal departed Aruba at 10pm on Wednesday night, heading towards Kralendijk, Bonaire.
