Star Clippers will drop Antigua as a port of call on five remaining Royal Clipper itineraries through April 10, after a passenger was attacked and killed there on Jan. 19.

The line will substitute Nevis for the scheduled stop at Antigua.

"Star Clippers has called at Antigua for many years without incident, and with its long sailing and yacht history, the island has always been a popular destination with our guests," Star Clippers CEO Mikael Krafft said in a statement.

"We are taking this decision after much deliberation, and we will continue to monitor the security situation in Antigua and evaluate our options for next winter season regarding returning to the island."

The Royal Clipper was scheduled to call in Antigua this Tuesday, Feb. 2.
