silkpainter: if you really feel that way, why don't you put up a sign, NO CRUISE PEOPLE ALLOWED?
Even if the government allows it's greed to show, the business communtiy doesn't have to.

Short had the right advice. If those involved in the tourists industry in Belize don't want cruise people, problem solved. No matter what the government's position is on this, it is a business matter, and the business community has control over it's destiny.

PS: my suggestion for your next add: No Shoes, No Shirts, No Problem, Cruise People, Problem. laugh

Oh, and don't forget "Have a Nice Day" :p
