Two Carnival Cruise Line passengers died in a bus crash while on an independent tour in Belize on Wednesday.

“Sadly, two of our guests have died and the five others who were injured will continue their medical care in U.S.,” Robyn Fink, director of PR at Carnival, told USA TODAY in a statement. “Our Carnival CareTeam and medical staff are supporting guests and their families.” Guests from at least one other cruise line were also on the bus.
