Cruise lines cancel calls on St. Kitts after passengers robbed at gunpoint

USATODAY.com: "The brazen robbery at gunpoint this weekend of a bus full of cruisers on St. Kitts has prompted at least two cruise lines to cancel calls on the island.
Carnival says the 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle, scheduled to visit St. Kitts today, instead has headed to Antigua, and Princess Cruises' has announced the 2,600-passenger Grand Princess will make a similar detour on Wednesday.
