Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
On a recent Disney cruise, nine passengers from the Disney Wonder as well as nine passengers from Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas were robbed at gunpoint while on a "Segway Off Road Back to Nature" tour of Nassau, Bahamas on November 20, 2009. The Royal Caribbean group and their tour guide were attacked by two men with shot guns who ordered them to the ground and took their money, passports, phones, credit cards, etc. The Disney Cruise Line group following the same route happened upon the incident and were also accosted. No one was injured. Disney Cruise Line representatives worked with the affected passengers providing assistance. Both cruise lines have cancelled the tour and the crime is being investigated by the Bahamian police.
While this incident is serious, I do not believe this is reason to panic. But it is a good reminder to practice common sense safety while traveling. There are some good tips on the U.S. State Department web site: http://travel.state.gov/travel/tips/safety/safety_1747.html
Be SAFE and make magic wherever you go!
