Default Conquest passengers robbed in Jamaica

Did anyone see the news this evening? 17 passengers from the Conquest were robbed while on the banana plantation excursion in Jamaica. The father was interviewed and they had a gun pointed at his 10yr olds head. They took their passports, money, jewelry, id and credit cards. This is why you should bring copies of your passport and drivers license with you and keep them in the room safe. I will also copy the credit/debit cards along with numbers of how to call in case of theft. How scary this is.

No, didn't hear that story, but that is scary and you brought up a good point, to make copies of your passports, something I should do as well.

Its so unforunate, Jamaica is a beautiful island, but not one of the safest, I've always felt uneasy when visiting there, its a shame. May-be someday,if and when cruiseships no longer stop there, they will clean up their act.
