THE CARIBBEAN CRUISE INDUSTRY

The Cruise Industry is projected to continue to grow throughout 2019 with an estimated 30 million travelers, with an increase by 6% from 28.2 million in 2018. In the coming year 18 new ships are on order from 'Caribbean Lines International Association' CLIA Cruise lines. A total of 272 CLIA-member Cruise ships are projected to be in operation by June 2019.

In addition, the industry is the fastest-growing category in the leisure travel market. The industry has experienced an average annual passenger growth rate of approximately 7% per annum, beginning In 1980. As for cruising, an increase of 62% was achieved between 2005 and 2015. Is the Caribbean benefiting?

In recent months, many Tourism Ministers and representatives of the Caribbean Islands are monitoring this market very closely, with some overlooking it in detail, through indept discussion, data and analyst . Many I suppose is wondering why, but as for me, I am fully aware of the

reason. It is because the benefits to cruise Tourism lies in the pockets of the Industry owners and operators and not the Governments or business Entrepreneurs at the destinations.

One might wonder how is the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association/FCCA really representing the various Governments, knowing of the one sided Industry.

When would this be fully reconized by Government Officials.

The Harris Files:  by David Harris 

October 23 2021


The late Colin Powell was the embodiment of the American dream.


Colin Luther Powell death this week (18 of October) closed the chapter on the life of a distinguished black American who blazed a trail as a professional soldier, whose career took him from combat duty in Vietnam to becoming the first black national security advisor to a president of the United States towards the end of Ronald Reagan's presidency, and the youngest and first African American chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George H.W. Bush (1989 to 1993), and during the first term of George W. Bush, Powell was secretary of state from 2001 to 2005.

His national popularity soared in the aftermath of the US-led coalition victory during the Gulf War, and for a time in the mid-90s, he was considered a leading contender to become the first Black President of the United States.

Powell had been a political independent during his military career but, after retirement in 1993 and a bestselling memoir, was wooed by both Democrats and Republicans as potential presidential material.

He sided with the latter, explaining that he aligned with Republicans on fiscal responsibility, small government, and low taxes, even though he disagreed with some illiberal positions. His reputation was stained when, as George W. Bush's first secretary of state, he pushed faulty intelligence before the United Nations to advocate for the Iraq War, which he would later call a "blot" on his record.

Powell was born on April 5, 1937, in Morningside Avenue, Harlem, his parents, Luther and Maud Powell immigrated to the United States from Jamaica. He was educated in the New York City public schools and received a bachelor's degree in geology from the City College of New York (CCNY). He also participated in ROTC at CCNY and received a commission as an Army second lieutenant upon graduation in June 1958, and was a professional soldier for 35 years.

At the time of Powell's birth, Jim Crow laws which were meant to marginalize African Americans by denying them the right to vote, hold jobs, get an education or other opportunities, still existed in the United States, those who attempted to defy Jim Crow laws often faced arrest, fines, jail sentences, violence, and death.

They were reluctantly admired by white Americans for their skills as athletes, and talent as entertainers, but were widely regarded as not having the mental capacity to be strategic thinkers, even though Anna Julia Cooper, Albery Allson Whitman, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and others had shattered that myth in the 19th century.

Even though the odds were stacked against him, Powell boldly ventured where no black American had ever gone before he was the embodiment of the American dream, may he Rest In Peace
