Hi psycho, welcome to cruise-chat. The safety of the passengers is one of the biggest concerns of the cruise industry. One of our cruises was scheduled to stop in the Dominican Republic years ago, they cancelled the port due to a coup. Goin' cruising has some great advice and I strongly suggest sticking with an excursion. On all ships they have advice on the ports you are visiting, most of it is shopping, but they do offer safety tips as well. They even play the video on the ship's station on the tv in your cabin. I really think you'll be fine. Best wishes and have a wonderful cruise!
