Default More Concerns about Antigua

Antigua as a port of call, has real concerns.

The Antigua Sun reports police are working from tips they've received since the body of Nina Elisabeth Nilssen was found on a trail just off the island's famed Pigeon Point Beach.

Upsetting,,,my next cruise in 33 days docks in Antigua and it's on Carnival Freedom,,,but I checked and they are still going there with this ship only. Which I am grateful as we have friends on the island we are going to see while in port.

Our May repositioning cruise on Princess will stop at Antigua. We were going to take a private tour but I am sure the lovely Mrs Roberts may insist on a ship's excursion or opt just to shop on the streets around the dock and getting back on board.

I remember when the US Navy told sailors to watch out in St Thomas,and I know someone who's Mom was shot there in a violent robbery. There is crime everywhere, but, Islands depend on tourism almost totally, and since Carnival has curtailed it's stops there, and if others do the same, the economy will plummet, and then what will haappen

They don't say if she went off on her own but I'm thinking that's what happend.
I'm sure you will be fine as long as you don't go off by yourself and stick in a group.
Very sad.
