Has anybody actually successfully fought off the onslaught of cruise ships? It seems like an impossible battle to win. The government makes heaps of fast easy money on dockage fees and whatever so they will be gung-ho behind it. The goverment easily convinces the business owners that cruise ships are the best thing since sliced bread by waving a few charts showing increased revenues around.

So the little guy is left to fight the politicians and the business owners. Good luck cause you are going to need. frown

Of course, you could always hope the Norwalk virus becomes epedemic...
