Cruise ship leaves Fla. as FBI probes baby death

The cruise ship Carnival Dream is back at sea even as FBI agents investigate the death of a newborn found aboard the liner last week.

The Carnival Dream set sail Sunday for its regularly-scheduled seven-day cruise.

FBI agents are investigating the death of the newborn whose body was found by a crew member in a cabin Wednesday while the ship was docked at the Caribbean destination St. Maarten.

A 20-year-old woman was detained in St. Maarten pending further investigation.

A Carnival spokesman directed further questions about the probe Monday to the FBI. The FBI did not have an immediate update on the probe.
