From the return to Paradise department:

The people of the Bahamas are excited about Norwegian Cruise Lines has returned for the winter season. The line and the government jointly announced an expanded series of calls a few weeks ago. The calls will replace some of the overall number of calls at Bahamian ports which has been eroding recently. The first of these additional calls was made when Norwegian Gem arrived at Great Stirrup Cay on Tuesday. The Nassau Guardian reported the return today.

The arrival was marred, however, by the police meeting the ship to investigate an unexplained death aboard (the Bahamas were the first port of call) of a crew member. The man was found dead in his cabin, but foul play is not suspected. The death is reported in the Nassau Guardian near the end of the series of incidents listed.
