Celebrity Eclipse Passengers Robbed on St. Lucia Excursion
 
It is being reported that about 50 excursion passengers were robbed, at gunpoint, in St. Lucia. No one was seriously injured but there is one report of a woman with a broken leg from the incident.

Here is a link to the story.

That's terrible news. St. Lucia has, according to some online sources, a 'moderate' crime rate. In 2010 and 2011 they had an average of 49 murders each year, and with a population of 176,000 in an island environment that is fairly significant.

Wasn't there a similar robbery of Celebrity passengers a few years ago? (St. Thomas, I thin, but I don't want to cast aspersions.) if I remember correctly, Celebrity reimbursed the passenger losses.
