Question by pdooma: What do you think about Royal Caribbean cruise ships continuing to dock at Haiti?
“On Sunday, the Guardian reported that Florida-based Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines is docking ships at the “picturesque wooded peninsula” known as Labadee, which it leases on Haiti’s northern coast. At Labadee, passengers “enjoy jetski rides, parasailing, and rum cocktails delivered to their hammocks.” The British paper also reported that passengers can spend their time “shopping for trinkets at a craft market” while armed guards stand at the entry to the complex to guarantee their safety.

Despite the fact that the ships have delivered relief supplies to the island, some passengers on the ships are reportedly “sickened” over the decision to dock there. One passenger took to an Internet message board to protest the idea of vacationing where “tens of thousands of dead people are being piled up on the streets, with the survivors stunned and looking for food and water.”‘
