We are considering a cruise itinerary that includes Trinidad and Tobago. This thread is a shocker but geared toward Trinidad. Is Charlottesville in Tobago also unsafe?

Safe?  In a word NO… Here’s UK Government’s advice… Copy/Paste

Tobago

Most visits to Tobago are trouble free and incidents of violent crime are rare. However, there have been recent incidents involving tourists (including British nationals) being robbed and raped.

You should maintain at least the same level of security awareness as you would in the UK and make sure your living accommodation is secure. Don’t carry large amounts of cash or wear eye-catching jewellery. Use a hotel safe to store valuables, money and passports. Petty theft from cars is common.

Villas, particularly those in isolated areas, should have adequate security, including external security lighting, grills and overnight security guards.

Don’t walk alone in deserted areas including beaches even in daylight. Consult your tour operator if in doubt. Don’t take lifts with unknown persons (unless with proper known/ licensed taxis)

Be vigilant at all times and carry a mobile phone with roaming capability for use in emergency……

 

But Cruise Lines still send their ships into there 😱
