Here is an article from just today about a cruise chip passenger stabbed in St. Lucia in broad daylight.
At least the locals stepped in to help the lad and her friend.
Taxi drivers are generally safe. But you should stay away from isolated "low income" neighborhoods where other people cannot see you. Stick to well-populated tourist areas.
Very unfortunate but the same thing could have happened in downtown Toronto. Once again, be aware of your surroundings and listen to the little warning voices in your head! St Lucia is a gorgeous island and I would hate for anyone to stay on the ship rther than exprience the island.
