While authorities await autopsy results, the investigative work on board the ship appears to be complete.

The Royal Princess left Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Friday and is expected to return on Saturday.

"The cause of death is not yet known at this time", Royal Princess told the newspaper in the statement. According to one news site, Diario, "a "muscular" man was struggling with the woman and suddenly began choking her".
