Cruises cancel visits to Roatan after murder

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Cruises have stopped calling and excursions have been cancelled at the island of Roatan in Honduras, following the shooting of a crew member this month.

Cruising Excursions, a company that operates tours exploring the island’s fishing villages, mangroves, iguana farms and beaches, announced on Friday that it is taking the precaution of cancelling its tours there.

“A string of reports of robberies, violence against visitors and now this horrific murder have forced us to suspend our cruise excursion programme on this beautiful island," a spokesman said.
