American commits suicide aboard Carnival Dream

POSTED: 07/18/13 12:11 PM

St. Maarten – A suicide aboard the Carnival Dream leaves one to ponder why so many people choose this cruise line to end their lives under tragic circumstances when they were supposed to be having a good time.

According to the police report, it was at approximately 10.00 a.m, the Central Police Dispatch sent a police patrol, Detectives and the Forensic Department, to investigate a case of suicide, which occurred in one of the cabins on board of the Carnival Dream Cruise Ship, which was docked at the A.C. Wathey Cruise Facility.

On board, the detectives spoke to the ships authorities and the ships doctor. The captain of the ship stated that shortly after leaving the port of St. Thomas on Tuesday with destination Sint Maarten he was informed about the incident.

The report further stated that the incident had taken place in one of the cabins on deck # 2 of the ship and the victim was a female U.S. citizen by the name of Christina Michelle Mullin age 40. Ironically, Mullin was not alone on the cruise; she was accompanied by other family members.

However, it was while her family members were out of the cabin that she took her own life by hanging herself. Dr. Mercuur, who was invited on board the ship examined the body and confirmed that the cause of death was by hanging.

The reason that prompted Mullin to take her own life remains unclear and now it’s up to the U.S. authorities to carry out the necessary investigations once the ship has docked at the nearest U.S. port.

    I can tell by the first sentence that the writer is an idiot: implying that a cruiseline is at fault for this tragedy. Does the writer truly think that the first two days of the cruise were so awful that the person hung themselves because of this?

    We were on that cruise..When we heard about it,we weren’t sure if it were true….After verification,we wondered about her reasoning. It definitely wasn’t any problem with CARNIVAL….We have NEVER been treated so well….and that was BEFORE the suicide….I blame personal issues for her decision.

      Hi Diana,

      I was just reading over about the suicide of Christina Mullen. It is sad about the suicide and I agree it is not Carnivals fault. I don’t understand her reasoning, especially when that room was booked for the next cruise. Call me selfish, but I feel people have the right to know if a murder or suicide has occurred in a room they are booking if we as passengers request this information. We are scheduled to go on the Carnival Dream, Deck 2 and well… we have an uneasy feeling inside praying we don’t get that room. I don’t want to be picturing that on my cruise or wondering, did this occur in my room. I am not afraid of death…. a hanging saddens me.
      Please tell me the room number if you know it… I would really appreciate it.
      Thank you….
