That's not what I get:

> v + geom_contour()
Error in FUN(X[[i]], ...) : object 'drmvt' not found

Classes ‘tbl_df’, ‘tbl’ and 'data.frame': 5625 obs. of 3 variables:
$ eruptions: num 1.6 1.65 1.69 1.74 1.79 ...
$ waiting : num 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 43 ...
$ density : num 0.00322 0.00384 0.00444 0.00498 0.00542 ...
So you are apparently trying to throw together code and data that you don't understand. The data you are using is already a density estimate designed to simply be plotted. It is not the original data. Furthermore you are passing drmvt that is apparently not in either the mvtnorm nor the ggplot2 packages.
You should determine where that function is and then determine how to do a 2d estimate on the original data. I'm guessing this is homework so not inclined to offer a complete solution.
