Norwegian Cruise Line crew member killed during a robbery in Roatan

On Monday, a crew member employed by Norwegian Cruise Line was shot and killed during a robbery on the bay island of Roatan, Honduras.  The man, of Filipino descent, was targeted for his cell phone by an unknown assailant who approached him and opened fire.  Honduras, since 2010, has been named the most murderous country in the world, primarily the result of a spike in narco-trafficking.  While a paltry reward of five thousand dollars has been offered for the capture of his killer, there is tonight an urge for NCL to pull the Norwegian Pearl, Dawn and Jewel from that destination.  What this means to Belize remains unknown, however, the company, in the wake of Israeli passengers being banned from boarding its ships in Tunis, withdrew its vessel from that country.  The U.S. State Department has issued a stern advisory since this latest incident.
