Cruisingexcursions.com has announced the suspension of its on shore excursion programme on the Honduras Bay Island of Roatan in the Caribbean, with immediate effect.
The decision was made after an NCL Pearl crew member was shot dead last week, the latest and most shocking in a series of violent reported incidents affecting visitors to the island.
Cruisingexcursions.com’s managing director Simon Purchase said: “A string of reports of robberies, violence against visitors and now this horrific murder have forced us to suspend our cruise excursion programme on this beautiful island. It is such a shame and very sad for the majority of law abiding island residents, especially those who make a living from tourism but we cannot recommend cruisers go ashore until we are reassured that measures are in place to protect visitors. All forward bookings have been cancelled with full refunds.”
Cruisingexcursions.com did offer a choice of eleven excursions on Roatan.
