They employ 300 locals and allow another 200 locals exclusive access to sell on the premises.
They pay the Haitian government $6 per tourist.
After the earthquake, RCI pledged to donate $1 million to relief funds and to use cruise ships to ferry relief supplies and personnel.
We will be only ship in port that day (not crowded)
