To the people asking why there's a morgue. A cruise is in the middle of the sea. If someone dies suddenly, what are they going to do with the body until they get back to port? It's sensible to have one!

Cruise ships tend to be filled with senior citizens. Senior citizens tend to die more frequently than younger folks. A morgue is an unfortunate necessity on a cruise line - even if the cruise ship were to only be filled with young people. Accidents happen, after all.

Where I live, a hospital that was built a long time ago built the morgue right beside the kitchen. Thankfully they've fixed it and now its a storage freezer I think. To this day I feel weird trying to eat there...

Where else are they supposed to put it? Is there somewhere better you would suggest? At least by having it next to the staff laundry room, that implies that guests don't tend to go to that area of the ship, making it less likely that they will go in there.

Almost every cruse ship and hospital has a morgue. They are generally located next to or nearby the kitchen. The mortuary school I attended had the lunchroom under the embalming room... I never ate there...

I was on a cruise, and a old guy died... They put him in the walk in freezer. I helped carry the body, and was a little surprised at first walking through the galley with him, but better froze, than rotting!
