Yes, from what I have read, a 27 year old from the Philipines who was employed as a cook on the Pearl was shot and killed in a robbery in an area near the port where crew often go for food and free wifi. He reportedly had a young child at home back in the Philipines.

Norwegian has cancelled all of it's port calls there, at least for this week. That decision is somewhat controversial and has become a hot topic on some of the boards. Some contend the incidence of crime is no worse there than in many other Caribbean ports of call.

In any case, very sad for the young man and his family.
