Cruise Ship Visits To Labadee Stir Controvery

We have all been shaken by the devastation in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake. It reminds me of our short visit in August of '06 to Labadee, which is on Haiti's northern coast. At that time of course, the country had just endured Hurricane Ernesto, although you could find no sign of it at the time. The only sign of the people's strife were the locals, who would ride up in rowboats to try and sell jewelry as we were jet skiing. Royal Caribbean's decision to continue to dock there has caused considerable controversy.
