Default 3 Cruise lines restrict excursions in Nassau

Disney, Carnival and NCL will restrict excursions in Nassau due to a recent number of robberies on the island.

As well they should until they catch they guys for that robery.
All lines should do the same.

No outside the immediate area of the ship tours.

Go to Atlantis and that is about it.

Yup yup...sometimes that's what it takes to get the public involved in active crime prevention. The action of those robbers is certainly going to impact the merchants of Nassau...this may motivated them to be pro-active in solving this crime and even taking steps to prevent further incidents. If not for the moral issues then certainly for economic ones.

I have called Carnival three times to try to get information on their cancellation. We are sailing on Carnival Pride on December 27th. Has anyone had better luck than I have on getting information? Lois

Thanks Don for the heads-up about this problem.

Kudos to Disney, Carnival and NCL for having the fortitude to step up and cancel these tours. In addition to the tour operators loosing money, the cruise lines also are going to loose some money over this decision and it is great to see that they are proactive in trying to end this problem. As others have said this kind of economic pressure will no doubt increase the motivation for police to put an end to these crimes.

Lois:

From reading this, I don't believe they are eliminating all excursions but only select ones that I would guess in their opinion could be off the beaten path...
