According to Caribbean Cruise Line scam prevention is one of its highest priorities as a vacation package provider. As many Americans embrace travel plans for annual spring breaks, Caribbean Cruise Line encourages tourists to use cause—especially when traveling abroad. In a recent press statement, the company comments, “Through the Caribbean Cruise Line Scam Watch program, we hope to decrease the amount of scams travelers face so that they can enjoy their time away with confidence and in an affordable manner.”
According to Caribbean Cruise Line, scam artists are prevalent throughout the travel industry, making it hard for any family to trust any offer that may be presented with to embark on a great vacation.
“While travelling, it’s important to watch out for people offering unsolicited help,” advises a representative for Caribbean Cruise Line Scam Watch, a consumer protection organisation. “Scams often involve some form of distraction, so be aware of your surroundings before you turn your attention to someone you don’t know.”
According to the Boston Globe, a referendum next month will decide if some forms of gambling will be legalised in the Bahamas. But, warns Caribbean Cruise Line, scams known as “web shops” are currently the only way for islanders to participate in this pastime.
