A group of Americans who had planned a luxury yacht tour to the Caribbean in the Bahamas had a rocky start, but it seems to have been a positive experience.
The U.S. Secret Service says the group of about 30 people arrived on Tuesday at the Grand Bahama resort.
They were escorted by two Secret Service agents, and it was not clear if they were questioned.
There were no reports of any injuries, the Secret Service said.
The group was set to sail in early March, with the intention of visiting two destinations.
It was not immediately clear if the group would return to Florida for the cruise.
“There was a small hitch, but we’ve been through it,” said Ryan Kempton, a 30-year-old real estate broker who planned to be one of the first guests.
He said he was not expecting any problems on the boat.
Kempton said he did not think the tour was dangerous.
Some guests had been to other destinations before, but this was the first time they had been on the same boat.
He said the group had been traveling for about a month and he was hoping to get to the Grand Caribbean before winter.
After a few days of staying in hotels, the group got a flight out of Nassau.
We got to the gate and we’re told there’s no room available, and we had to wait for a hotel room, Kemptons mother, Jennifer Kempten, said.
My son, he said, was in a little panic.
He is a little bit confused, but I think he’s fine.
I just want to thank everyone that has been supporting us through this, and I’m really thankful that I have a friend that is here for me.
