News that Saint Lucia has been ranked as one of the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cruise Destinations in the World, according to an article on an international cruise website, has caught the attention of at least one tourism official here.

Maritime Consultant Cuthbert Didier notes that while there is no scientific basis for the conclusions made in the article, it creates a particular impression upon any reader who does not have ready access to the facts.

While he does not believe that there will be any implications for the island, Mr Didier says the situation must be addressed immediately.

Mr Didier has called on officials at the St Lucia Tourist Board to react promptly against the possible dangers posed to the island’s tourism product via the internet.


The publication, named “Top 10 Most Dangerous Cruise Destinations in the World” was penned by writer Jim Walker, a maritime lawyer, who sought to compile the list, based on what he said, were reports of incidents involving tourists during their recent visits to various Caribbean islands. Saint Lucia is number 10 on that list.
