One of the men said they had brought more than $3500 spending money each, showing Alison a big wad of notes held together with a rubber band. ‘If you’ve got so much money, what are you doing on a cruise,’ one of her friends asked.

She called over one of her friends, warning her to keep the conversation low-key and not give anything away.
It sounded like an emergency, and now she could see a team of medical staff down the corridor. She asked the staff member blocking off the corridor whether the person in trouble was male or female, but they did not know. Nobody could tell Alma what was going on, or if it had anything to do with Dianne. Not only could the passengers not go down the corridor to their cabins, they were told they could not return upstairs either—the elevator had to be available for the medical team. As they were waiting, a message was broadcast over the loudspeaker, calling on Dianne Brimble to call the purser’s desk.

As they arrived, a female staff member outside the lift told passengers they could go no further: the corridor was closed off because there had been an incident.
