How Bahama travel warnings bring concerns

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Some Central New Yorkers are ready to trade in the cold, gloomy weather for some tropical sunshine!

At least that’s what Roberta Hullings is hoping for.

This April, the Liverpool woman, along with her husband and another couple will be hopping aboard a 9-day cruise.

They will make a two-day stop in the Bahamas. That could all change with a new travel warning in place.

Right now the Bahamas is listed as a level two warning, urging travelers to “exercise increased caution.”

The worst is Level 4, which is basically “a do not travel warning.”

This advisory comes after at least 18 murders were reported this year alone in the Bahamas, with the majority of crime related to gang violence happening in the country’s capital of Nassau and the Freeport Islands.

For Andrew Hoornbeek, he says he’s playing it by ear. But the travel warning has been on his mind.

Just like the Hullings, Hoornbeek will also be cruising this spring with his wife and some families heading to the Bahamas.
