Interesting.. I made NO comment about RACE at all! What I was referring to was the practice of heavy discounting as "resident specials".
This could hold true if it were residents of Baltimore, LA .. or whereever.
The practice is more prevelant on San Juan sailings ( likely due to the extra cost of air getting there... as I stated)
The price gets cheap enough and they attract many more people who take advantage, and will party hardier.... as opposed to people who have been planning a family cruise vacation for a year or more.
It's very similar to the situation with short 3 & 4 day cruises. People tend to go on them to party hard. Because of the short duration they want to get in all they can.
Those who insist on reading rascism into it are the ones way off base here.
