Default NYC safe ?

I first watched the youtube video. Maybe you should watch it again, Im not trying to be mean at all. Anywhere you travel will have some crime (by the way folks, crime is down in NYC, dont diss on it, it doesn't make for an intelligent post.)

Do some research on any other island you are considering sailing to and come back and post your results. I respect that you have fought for our country and want to protect yourself, but if in fact that is your mindset, would you really put yourself in any bad area on your own on ANY island? I watched exactly half the video and I was done. Im sure there is crime in your backyard - or 4 miles away, down the road and it might not make your local news reporting. And, if not your immediate town, Im sure there is one "nearby" and you most likely know of townes that you would make sure to avoid. You should follow rules like that when travelling anywhere outside your own area.

BTW, did I mention how safe NYC is people?

Go, cruise, enjoy and live HAPPY. You only get one chance. And.........

SUMMIT ROCKS! It is a gorgeous, classy, hot ship! The ultimate in modern luxury! I hope you enjoy luxury.

Surely this is a facetious post re NYC being safe .

Well, you need to be happy any place you vacation.

I have been to Bermuda 7 times and eagerly anticipate my next visit. We like mixing with the locals, but know better than to land ourselves somewhere undesirable after dark. There is enough to do where SUMMIT docks that I couldn't fathom being any where that you could be in dangers way - really? Just how far are you walking from Kings Wharf...to the projects (that have been there forever) I want to guesstimate within 5-7 miles from...Nothing should take you to those areas after dark while visiting Bermuda on a celebrity or any cruise.

Bermuda is still one of the most beautiful places and the crime they're experiencing is no different than crime anywhere else. You will, if you seek, find there is crime on any island you might think of visiting. Dont think too hard, just go.

Why are you assuming my wife and I walked from Kings Warf...I never mentioned I walked from Kings Warf.

My wife and I use to walk all over Hamilton when we docked IN HAMILTON. You see the Zenith and Horizon docked right in the town of Hamilton.

Stand up comedy is not one of your talents I see....I started this thread BECAUSE IMHO this was Paradise some years back...Where there was just about no violent crime to speak of...everything was beautiful...Clean streets, friendly people, Graffitti free, gang free and just about drug free...That is Paradise to me...and to see this happen to a place that I treasured is upsetting...

Its not that I am afraid to live life...ITs the fact that this little part of the world has changed for the worst...things have thrived here that once were never dreamed possible...

So lets not confuse the fact that i am upset over the fact that this island is not what it use to be and not that im afraid to go there. So yes I would visit Bermuda again but not in the same frame of mind...and I would need to use caution on where and when to go....Yes I wll still rent a scooter like I did all previous visits and yes I will visit all of Bermuda...but this time in a more cautionary frame of mind. OH I almost forgot...

Sorry your little piece of paridise is ruined.The world is turning into a very dangerous and scary place! Crime in Mexico is running rampant Bermuda is totally out of control is there any place safe any more? I think I wont worry so much about it and enjoy my life .Have fun be safe and good luck.

There is no reason to be afraid. Things could happen right where you are.
I say be happy, enjoy life, eat, drink, dance, love and greet people with a smile.

Don't worry! Go places, and most of all,,,,, don't be afraid.

If this is so, then why did you have to name this thread: "Summit to Bermuda...NO WAY"??? Is Summit somehow to blame??

I think perhaps it's not the point that you're trying to make, but the way you're trying to make it that seems to turn so many off.

...and to Henry43, when was the last time you were in NYC??

Perhaps we should all just stay in our locked homes in order to feel safe.

Not really sure...But please point out the fact that I said "The Summit is to blame...I just can't find the quote, if you would be kind enough to point it out I will elaborate on it.

Well, first you headlined your original post "Summit to Bermuda...NO WAY", which to me means that you would not go to Bermuda on Summit, but in a later post you said that you would return to Bermuda, so I took it to understand that you would not go to Bermuda on Summit, but you would return to Bermuda. Again, perhaps if your headline was a little more tactful, readers could better understand exactly what you meant to say, & not have to....oh, never mind.

You won't be safe! A tornado could come along and blow your house away.

Or armed intruders could break in.
