Nassau, Bahamas — The curly hair fast TALKER we liken as the FNM’s version of Perry Christie, Vincent Vanderpool Wallace, could be heard telling those attending the inaugural voyage of the ‘Big Ship’ the Bahamas tourist arrivals via cruise ship passengers were up by 28%.
The Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas is the largest ship in the world, which arrived in the port of Nassau on Friday around noon.
“We don’t talk very much about our business in terms of counting cruise passengers but I assure you that for the first three months of the year in the Port of Nassau, we have received more than 120,000 cruise passengers in the Port of Nassau alone compared to last< /span> year,” Wallace said.
The “TALKER“ said nothing about where tourism figures were overall nor did he mentioned a word how robberies committed against tourists in The Bahamas are also up. The number of belligerent acts against guests is so high across the country these days, newspapers in the US are publishing exclusive pieces. Particularly on the 18 guests robbed during a nature tour at Earth Village on Dunmore Street.
The savages who cussed, kicked and threatened to shoot the guests could possibly be some of the 205 released bail on by the ‘VIGZY HEAD PEOPLE’ in April this year. They were released to reek havoc on the society. While the ‘TALKERS’ say they organizing “crime fighting strategies”. They said that from 2007 when murder shot up to a record-breaking 78, two years later we are at another record-breaking year and the strategy ain’t reach yet! Those who are saying, “it’s coming” themselves don’t have a clue of what it is.
Meanwhile operators of the ‘BIG SHIP‘ were busy handing out cards telling guests if they step off the boat, they should know the Bahamas is a hotspot for increasing crimes. In so much words they are telling guests, you step off the boat and you die at your own risk. The warning cards were effective. Hundreds of guests never disembarked. Arawak Cay vendors made no money. The straw vendors were left holding church in the Straw Market with the huge rats on Bay Street praying for a breakthrough and the hair braiders were left busy pulling out their own weave. NOTHING WAS HAPPENING!
Bahamians should examine the facts; We deepened the harbour at a cost of $44 million and what did we collect in return? A big ship, plenty Christie clone talking politicians, natives waving looking at the ship as it moved in and out the habour. And criminals are still left running wild in a small town threatening the very survival of our society. WE ARE IN CRISIS!!!!
BP says again, we need a modern day Woodes Rogers to declare WAR ON THE LAWLESS PIRATES and restore our commerce to its rightful place in the world!
WE NEED CHANGE BAHAMAS!!!
Residents left doing a wave offering at the ‘BIG SHIP’. What could they be saying? Something like, “Get off the ship and save us from all this crime!” HELP!
