This is not a surprise overall. There have been issues posted frequently about Nassau and some of the areas  due to crime and poor treatment of cruise passengers. In many cases there have been instances where the passengers staying on board a cruise ship equaled or exceeded those getting off in some ports. The best way to deal with some of these places is with your wallet. If you are not feeling good about the stop, you won't spend the money. Now, once Cuba gets used to the  tourist , we will see a few more stops in Cuba, and many less elsewhere.

Either way It will be interesting.

I agree with John.  Nassau had it coming.  Not sure about Cuba yet though.

As a cruiser, I welcome this change.

It's just sad for the Bahamian folks who depend on the tourist traffic to make their living.  Freeport still has not fully recovered from the hurricane last fall.  It's sad that the ones who really need the money will suffer, and the corrupt folks will find other means to pad their pockets.

we would likely stay on the ship if we stopped in Nassau again, not because we felt nervous, but because we were disappointed in how it had gone downhill since a visit previously. I would definitely consider a cruise with Cuna on the itinerary. Friends and family who have stayed at resorts there, loved it!

I can live a full life without ever stepping food in Nassau again.   One visit was more then enough for me.

This could all change under HRH Donald Trump.

So very true

I think that most of us were expecting this eventually.  Although I really want to visit Cuba, I don't just want one stop in Havana even if it is an overnight.  I want a cruise that just visits Cuba.  i want to see all of it.
