BayouBlonde Posted August 31, 2013 #1 Share Posted August 31, 2013 My son is very worried about my upcoming trip to Mexico via cruise ship. I've tried to convince him that the cruise industry is large enough and valuable enough to ensure the safety of the ports and any areas we will be visiting. I was hoping that his girlfriend would go with us on our next 'girls' cruise in a few months, but he's definitely not agreeable at this point and has said he doesn't even want me going next month. (He even managed to compliment us while saying no, "A group of beautiful blonde ladies traveling alone is like being a huge target.") His concerns are the recently released travel advisory (which he claims as evidence that Mexico in general is not safe for Americans) and activity of drug cartels. He's an avid news watcher and I'm not. I'm hoping some of you will have some good info, opinions and personal experiences I can use to convince him (or at least support my argument!) Then again, perhaps he's correct and it isn't really safe for us to travel there? Please share your thoughts! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
