Cruise Ship Robbery, Twenty-two guests on a Carnival Splendor cruise ship out of Long Beach, Calif., were robbed at gunpoint in Mexico last week as they travelled by bus from a nature hike in the jungle to the Mexican port city of Puerto Vallarta, according to cruise ship officials and Mexican media reports.

Hooded gunmen intercepted the tourists’ bus about 5 p.m. Thursday as it returned from the pueblo of El Nogalito, known for its trail through the jungle, according to the Mexican newspapers El Norte and La Jornada. The gunmen took cameras, money, watches and other valuables before fleeing into the countryside, the papers said.

“Carnival sincerely apologizes to its guests for this very unfortunate and disturbing event and is providing its full support and assistance,” Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines said in a prepared statement. No one was injured and guests returned safely to the ship.
