Adonia Cruise Ship Passengers Shot in Barbados

??????The Foreign Office is investigating reports that two Britons have been shot by a robber whilst enjoying a day ashore in Barbados.

The pair – believed to be a man aged 72 and a woman aged 59 – were attacked during a visit to Bridgetown, Barbados.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident involving two British tourists in Bridgetown, Barbados. We are providing consular assistance.”

The woman was shot in her right thigh and the man was hit in his left side. The robber escaped with the woman’s handbag in the incident that happened on Sunday afternoon. The victims were on a P&O cruise.

A company spokesman said: “Two passengers on Adonia have been hospitalised in Bridgetown, Barbados, following an incident on shore. Local authorities are investigating. Our shore-side customer care team and ship’s medical team are providing support as necessary.

A spokesman for the Royal Barbados Police Force said:  ‘We can tell you two British tourists, a couple, received gunshot wounds and It appears the incident was a robbery, the female’s handbag was stolen. They are currently receiving medical attention but are not in a life threatening condition and are talking to our detectives to assist with the investigation.

‘The incident occurred at about 2pm on the outskirts of Bridgetown. We believe the couple were making there way back to their cruise ship.’

Approximately 250,00 British tourists visit Barbados every year and attacks are rare, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Adonia is on an 85-night world cruise which left Southampton on January 8, 2013 and will arrive back in Southampton on April 3, 2013. She is the smallest ship within the P&O Cruises fleet.

It's been quite a while since I spent time aboard Oceana, but she's still my little lady. This photo was taken during a Caribbean cruise in 2015. I was sitting in my favourite spot, taking in the raw beauty that Mother Nature was offering. What could be better than this? Seriously! 😍 ❤⚓🌅 . . . . . #passportforlife #inspiredtravels #cruiseblog #worldwonder #tagsta_travel #mytravelgram #worldplaces #postcardsfromtheworld #dametraveler #darlingescapes #travellushes #globelletravels #womenwhoexplore #femaletravelbloggers #doyoutravel #influencer #roamtheplanet #openmyworld #mytinyatlas #travelblogger #passionpassport #worldingram #cruiseships #cruise #gtt
Peekaboo! 😍 I met this cheeky little bird on #HamiltonIsland in the #Whitsundays. #cockatoos in that part of the world are as common a sight as pigeons are in the UK, only far more attractive! I was having lunch at a local restaurant and the birds were everywhere, waiting to steal food at the first chance they got. One couple made the mistake of leaving their freshly served food unattended on the table and within seconds a swarm of cockatoos had picked the plates clean! This little devil in the photo was one of them! So beautiful, but so naughty!! 🤣⚓❤ . . . . #roamtheplanet #femaletravelbloggers #womenwhoexplore #girlsgoneglobal #visualsoflife #flashesofdelight #destinationearth #travelgirl #mytinyatlas #globelletravels #wandermore #exploretocreate #wanderingsoul #PostcardsFromTheWorld #TravelTheWorld #girlswhotravel #earthfocus #wishyouwerehere #passionpassport #travelista #travelforlife #TravelDeeper #openmyworld #MyTravelGram #meettheworld #gtt
