JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The 47-year-old captain of a small cruise ship under way in southeast Alaska was found dead in his state room.

Alaska State Troopers says the death of Kenneth Adams of California is not considered suspicious and foul play is not suspected. An autopsy is planned in Anchorage.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/29oKlFG) crew members found the body early Monday morning. Efforts to revive him weren’t successful, and authorities were called.

The 143-foot Admiralty Dream, which can carry up to 58 people, met troopers in Angoon, nearly 60 miles south of Juneau.

Jamey Cagle, the vice president of Allen Marine, which owns Alaskan Dream Cruises, says Adams worked for the company for four years. Cable says Adams had a passion for his career and was well respected.

The company provided a grief counselor to crew members.
