A Virgin Voyages passenger died after falling from a balcony on the line’s Valiant Lady ship, the cruise line said Monday.

The passenger fell shortly after departure Sunday as the ship went to Roatan, Honduras. 

“This passenger went over their balcony onto a lower deck, and despite receiving immediate medical attention, has passed away,” a Virgin spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “We are deeply saddened by this loss of life and our hearts and thoughts are with this person’s loved ones.”

The vessel “was immediately redirected back to Miami, where the team are working closely with local officials,” the spokesperson added. The ship has since resumed its sailing with an adjusted itinerary, including a missed port of call in Roatan.
