Cruise ship passenger’s body was kept in drinks cooler for almost a week, lawsuit claims

A Florida widow and her family are suing a cruise line for allegedly mishandling her husband’s dead body and storing it in a drinks cooler after he died on board a ship.

Robert Jones’ body was stored inside a walk-in cooler normally used for drinks for nearly a week instead of a properly chilled morgue as his wife was promised, according to the federal lawsuit filed in Florida.
