18 CRUISE PAX ROBBED AT GUNPOINT ON BAHAMAS TOURS…

Posted on 28 November 2009

¬†Eighteen cruise passengers on two separate ship-sponsored tours were robbed at gunpoint in the Bahamas on Friday, according to local newspaper reports. The passengers were traveling onboard Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas and Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wonder. No passengers were injured in the robbery, and both cruise lines have since suspended sales of and canceled the two-untitled “See Natural Nassau on a Segway” and Segway Off Road Back to Nature,” respectively-even though this is the first reported instance of crime or trouble. The tour is an off-road adventure through Earth Village, a natural Bahamian ecosystem. The local newspaper reported that two men wielding shotguns tied up the first group’s tour guide and ordered the cruise passengers to the ground before robbing them of money, passports, cell phones, credit cards and personal items. The second tour group approached the area during the hold-up and was also robbed. Both cruise lines worked closely with the affected passengers to provide assistance.

 

The incidents follow a robbery of cruise passengers on Oct. 11 near the Queen’s Staircase, a popular attraction in Nassau. Two masked men reportedly held the tourists at gunpoint and robbed them of cash and possessions.
