Death on a Distant Sea, Far From Home

Balinese Crew Member on Carnival Splendor Dies Only 17 Days After Joining Cruise Ship in Florida.

(1/19/2014) A 21-year-old Balinese man working as a crew member on board the Carnival Splendor cruise ship has died, just days after joining the ship.

I Wayan Barsiana died on December 23, 2013 after joining the ship’s crew in Florida (USA) on December 6, 2013.

Due to requirements for post mortem examination and administrative requirements, the young man’s body was only turned over to his family in Bali on Monday, January 13, 2014, nearly three week’s after Barsiana’s demise.

Wayan Barsiana was born in Banjar Intaran, Pejeng in Gianyar and attended High School in Tampaksiring. Prior to joining Carnival Cruise Wayan worked at The Villas in Seminyak.

The young man was said to be diligent in calling or texting his family and girlfriend on a daily basis, contact that suddenly stopped on December 21, 2013, when he told his family he had developed a cough. Two days later on December 23, 2104 a manager from Carnival Cruise Lines telephoned the Barsiana's mother to advise her son had died in his crew cabin.

According to NusaBali, the crewman’s family has received no further details in connection with the circumstances or cause of their son’s death.

Wayan Barisana’s body was buried in his home village several hours after it arrived back in Bali on January 13, 2013.

The 3,000-passenger Carnival Splendor was launched in 2008. It's history as a cruise ship includes a dramatic fire on November 8, 2010 that left it dead in the water. No injuries resulted from that fire. The ship – without power - was towed into San Diego with 4,500 passengers and crew 3 days later.
