A tragic end to what should have been a wonderful family vacation. My prayers go out to all involved in this terrible accident.

It is decent of Princess that they posted this on their website. How tragic, and how horrible that the parents were there on the same bus when their son was killed. I can't imagine that level of grief.

That's so true, Dave. Very very sad news to read. After I became a parent myself, reading and hearing about young people dying is really making an impact on me every time, because I can't even think about how much grief and pain it would be to lose your child. I can't imagine how it's possible to move on after experiencing that.

What a terrible, tragic experience. My heart goes out to the parents. My cousin lost her daughter last year, and my dear friend lost her daughter two years ago. It will take his parents all their strength to carry on. I hope they will cherish the good memories they have with him. I will include them in my prayers.

What a horrible story. Sadly though, I am not surprised. If there's anything I can say that I don't like about visiting the Caribbean islands it's the tour drivers. I have been on a number of long and torturous rides, some arranged through the cruise ships and some not, that have put my heart in my throat. The drivers on these islands are often reckless, which is exacerbated by steep hills, blind/hairpin curves and poor roads with no guardrails. If you want to see the interior though you have no choice but to put your life into the hands of these people. I'm really surprised we don't hear more stories like this.

I'm with Bob1958....

We don't do tours of most of the islands any longer....Two many BAD drivers that scare the beejebbers out of you....and more.....

I read that Tortola is bringing criminal charges against the driver in the young man's death.

If negligence was involved then he should be held accountable.

The latest news here .

In essence, authorities are calling it reckless driving and the defense is crying "brake failure."
