Honduran Officials Court Cruise Lines in Wake of Violence Against Tourists, Murder of Cruise Employee on Roatan

Cruise Law News reports that the president of Honduras -- accompanied by Congressman Jerry Hynds, who represents the Bay Islands of Honduras, which includes the popular tourist destinations of Roatan and Utila -- traveled to Miami to meet with cruise line officials.

President Juan Orlando Hernandez posted on his FaceBook page: "Este día ha sido muy productivo, después de una reunión con 2 empresas de Cruceros en Miami, donde definimos incrementar el número de turistas a Honduras."

Cruise Law's translation: "he had a productive day in Miami after meeting with two cruise lines in an effort to increase the number of tourists cruising to Honduras."

Roatan has been in the cruise-news after a rash of violent crimes against Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruise passengers this year who were attacked by armed robbers. A Norwegian Cruise Lines crew member was murdered by a criminal from Coxen Hole, near Roatan's port.

Roatan is on Cruise Law's list of the top 10 most dangerous cruise destinations this year.
