I wouldn't be surprised to learn that folks probably are really beginning to avoid tours whether cruise line sponsored or otherwise as those on vacations are rather prudent about avoiding such situations, especially if those situations are widely publicized.

I agree Todd, I am just expressing the opinion that the cruiselines will not rush to divert port calls, if anything, they will ease it out like Carnival did with Antigua, substituting St. Kitts.

It is sad to see what is happening in Kingston but it is just another indication that Jamacia is becoming a leading narco-state.
