Haiti - FLASH : A 3rd cruise ship cancels its stop at Labadee
Royal Caribbean confirmed that the cruise ship "Vision of the Seas" did not call on Labadee Sunday, January 24 because of the demonstrations of the inhabitants of the region. Cruise passengers were directed to San Juan earlier than expected.

For guests wondering what the future holds for upcoming scheduled stops in Labadee, Royal Caribbean is still planning on taking the situation in Labadee on a day by day basis.

"Vision of the Seas" is the 3rd Royal Caribbean ship that does not stop at the private destination of Labadee since the protests began last week. http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-16385-haiti-flash-2nd-cruise-ship-canceled-in-labadee.html http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-16371-haiti-flash-labadee-port-calls-canceled-due-to-demonstration.html

In a statement, Royal Caribbean commented further on the situation, "Royal Caribbean has not received any guarantees or assurances that there will not be any protests in the future. If a protest takes place while a ship is port, there would be a significant impact on our guests’ ability to enjoy Labadee, or we may have to cancel the visit completely."

For her part, Stéphanie Balmir Villedouin, had a meeting with residents of the community of Labadee and of the Bande-du-Nord, past weekend. During the exchanges, Ms. Villedrouin held to reassure among others, the Committee of the zone of tourist port that the Government remained attentive to the population and reiterate its support to all partners of the sector concerned.
