Cruise Ship Consultant's Report... "Don't Do It..."

From the cruise ship consultant's report "Southern Cruise Viability Report" on cruise ship tourism in southern Belize: 

"The government of Belize should not approve a new port of call, contract or agreement with the cruise lines, developers or their affiliates for operations in the Placencia Peninsula."

Although this is clearly not the final chapter in this story, it most definitely is a victory for the people of Placencia.  See my earlier blog post on the problem, and be sure to check out the  Facebook page
