According to members on the Cruise Critic message board, a group of guests onboard the Celebrity Eclipse were robbed at gunpoint earlier this week while in St. Lucia.
A group of guests were apparently on a Celebrity sponsored shore excursion when three masked gunmen approached their group and demanded that they hand over all of their jewelry, money, and other valuables. There is a report of one minor injury, but it seems that all the other guests involved did not sustain any injuries.
I have reached out to Celebrity Cruises for comment, but as of 1:40pm, no official statement has been made or shared with the public.
The Celebrity Eclipse is currently sailing a 14 night southern Caribbean cruise and is spending today at sea. She is scheduled to arrive back in Port Everglades on April 20th.
