Authorities are investigating the death of a 52-year-old woman who died Tuesday while traveling on a Princess Cruises ship that left Fort Lauderdale, reports say.

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

The woman plunged from a deck of the Royal Princess early Tuesday, landing so hard on a lifeboat she shattered its windows, the publication reported. The ship, which was traveling between the islands of Curacao and Aruba at the time of the woman's death, is due back in Florida on Saturday, officials said.

The 3,600-passenger ship left Florida's Port Everglades on November 9 for a seven-day round-trip southern Caribbean cruise. "The incident was reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local authorities and the local authorities met and boarded the ship upon arrival in Aruba". The woman's identity and hometown have not been released; neither have her husband's. MasNoticia.com, an Aruba-based media outlet, also reported the death was being probed as a possible murder case. We were all woken at 4.30am by a security alert by the captain. Later in the morning, another alert came through, telling passengers "there was a serious incident and no one could leave as local authorities were coming onboard". The ship was reportedly being treated as a crime scene. Princess Cruises did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

"The police force of Aruba are investigating the Royal line today".

Local investigators have performed an autopsy to establish how the woman died. The FBI has since joined the investigation.
