Going on a Cruise? Do you still want to after you read this?

Jump to last reply

In the Book Review section of the NY Time is a review of "Overbooked" by Elizabeth Becker. She talks about countries that have kept the faith as far as allowing tourism and yet protecting the environment, culture and their citizens' lives (Costa Rica) and those that have not (Cambodia - Ankgor Wat is an example).

NOW TO THE CRUISE PART: The reviewer wrote that "Giants like Royal Caribbean & Carnival Cruise Lines avoid paying minimum wages and exempt themselves from environmental scrutiny by registering their vessels under the flags of countries with lax or non-existent regulations."

I'm not a cruise person anyway, so I probably wouldn't be going on these trips in the first place, but what about you? Is this OK?
