JUNEAU-  Alaska state troopers say a Nairobi, Kenya, resident on a cruise in Alaska waters has died in the ship's spa.
Troopers say the woman was unresponsive when a relative found her in a steam room Tuesday evening.
The woman was traveling on the Norwegian Cruise Line's ship, the Norwegian Jewel, between Juneau and Skagway.
Troopers say 66-year-old Jasumati Vithalani was not breathing and had no pulse when the ship's medical staff arrived. A cruise line doctor pronounced her dead.
The troopers' statement said no foul play is suspected and the Alaska state medical examiner did not request an autopsy.
