#396007 - 12/31/10 03:36 PM I Saw Five Ships Come Sailing In
Marty Offline
The city and nearby tourist sites were bustling today as five cruise ships made a call in Belize. That's a total of 15,007 cruise passengers between those ships and the surely single biggest day of the winter 2010 cruise season.

And while tour guides and businesses benefitted, one deck hand was very seriously inured. It happened this morning as one of the tenders was pulling up alongside a cruise ship. His hand was caught and mangled between the tender and the gangway of the cruise ship. He was rushed in and taken to the hospital. Reports are that the young man's hand was crushed from the wrist down and he may lose that hand.

Yup...dont know how you came up with the xtra 7 passangers..I always figure them at 3,000 a ship. Thursday is THE DAY..almost every Thursday from Christmas to Easter we get 5 ships. I forgot this and was also in the city this last Thursday..being a U.S. now Belizean resident it was hell...no I dont need pot..no I dont need a tour..just need to get to Brodies and The Hardware store. The schedule goes somewhat like this...Seldom ships on weekends...one or two Monday and Tuesday..three to five Wed thru Friday...I hope the deck hand is OK..I hope he was employed thru the cruise line and gets some compensation...and has the ability to support himself in the future..

I'm pretty sure Channel 7 doesn't "just figure them" at a fixed rate per ship.......after all, does each art gallery in CC have the same number of prints? does each bar carry the same amount of Belikin inventory?
