Woman Who Died on Cruise Was Nervous About Trip, Children Say

Two children of a 52-year-old Alabama woman who died on a cruise from Florida to Aruba say she was nervous about taking the trip.

Timothy Tenorio told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that his mother, Almarosa Tenorio, told him when she said goodbye that it might be the last time she hugged him.

His sister Andrea Smith said their mother "did not want to go" on the Princess Cruises trip with her husband, Leo Tenorio. They said Leo Tenorio told them the couple were going to work on their relationship during the trip.

Local authorities in Aruba said Leo Tenorio was questioned but is not a suspect. He thanked authorities for investigating in a statement to ABC News and said that "her death will haunt me forever."

The Santa Clarita, California-based cruise line said in a statement Monday that the case remains an active investigation by the FBI. Almarosa Tenorio died on Nov. 13.
