The Mayor of Roseau responds to criticisms regarding Carnival Cruise Line
The Mayor of Roseau, his Worship Cecil Joseph has responded to recent criticisms regarding the reasons why Carnival Cruise Line has decided to drop Dominica from its Caribbean Itinerary. While the cruise liner cited the high price of fuel and economic reasons for its decision to end its weekly stops in Dominica as of November 2nd, 2010, many individuals are of the opinion that this is not the case. However, Mr. Joseph who has been analyzing the situation further expounded on the reasons as he shared some light on the matter.
The Mayor suggested that the organized Tour Operators and the Cruise Agents should hold discussions with both the Private and Gipsy Tour Operators in order to find a solution to the problem.
Joseph believes that in order to solve the problem the Gipsy Taxi Operators should not be allowed to visit the allocated prime sites, such as the Emerald Pool.
