The husband of an American woman who plunged from the top deck of a Caribbean cruise ship is reportedly not a suspect in her death despite witness accounts that the pair had a volatile altercation.

It was a gruesome scene as eyewitnesses said that one of the woman's legs was torn off in her fall.

The victim's husband, who is also American, was removed from the ship by Aruban investigators on Tuesday morning and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly also on the case.

The couple, both thought to be American, were seen arguing in the ship's casino, on the lido deck on the 16th floor, at around 10.30pm on Thursday.

Passenger Logan Tignor described the horrifying incident on a video call with CBS News, saying: 'It's surreal and I'm kind of traumatized for it.

"Another unnamed onlooker said,"'We can literally see the lifeboat from our room. No arrests have been made yet.

But one passenger has insisted, "It was two passengers they had a row in the casino that night".

'The gossip on board is rife.

A spokesman for Aruban prosecutors said he was the woman's partner and that her death was being treated as "unnatural". Blood and broken glass all over it'. "We were all woken at 4:30 a.m.by a security alert by the captain". Ten police officers came aboard.

The 52-year-old woman died Tuesday morning, after reportedly plunging from the upper deck of a Royal Princess cruise ship that was heading to Aruba from Fort Lauderdale. The statement says local authorities met the ship when it arrived in Aruba and cruise officials are cooperating with investigators.

A spokesman for Princess Cruises said the cause of death was not yet known.

"We are deeply saddened by this incident and offer our honest condolences to the family and those affected".

At its launch in Southampton, England in 2013, the ship was christened by the Duchess of Cambridge, who became the vessel's "godmother".
