South Florida is on the verge of a major disaster. Thousands of people have been stranded at Miami International Airport because of flight cancellations, lack of available seat space, and simply because the area hotels have closed and the guests have had to leave. Those people had no alternative but to head for the airport and hope for the best or move into a shelter. There are no rental cars, fuel is becoming difficult to obtain because of the mass evacution taking place over the past few days.
So, on top of all this a scumbag cruise ship company that was happy to load a few thousand passengers decided to head back to Miami and dump them on the dock. Where did all those folks go? Where would they or could they go but MIA and join the thousands already there with hopes for a chance at a flight out of town to anywhere out of the path of Irma.
Royal Caribbean knew Irma was coming, they knew that Miami would be a disaster area but the greed that typifies the cruise industry guided their choices so they turned around and jettisoned the human cargo to cut their own financial risk.
I wish the port of Miami had refused the ship entry, Royal Caribbean should have been forced to house and feed those people for at least the length of the cruise they paid for. Instead they chose to add more thousands of people to the misery of the thousands already at risk in the area. I sincerely hope that every single one of those passengers file suit against Royal Caribbean for every condition that the worst junkyard dog lawyer (and Florida is famous for having the worst of the species in abundance) can conceive.
