Well  if i lived in a  very..... very....... rural part of  somewhere...... unspoiled ..... and  a fucking  behemoth.......  came into port.....  i would hate it .......partly  the size of the  ship  ....but mostly  the tourists .......all liquored up ........which most   cruise  passengers  are !!!!!!  ....i mean they have fuck all to do ........except  sunbathe  ....... eat   .......and   drink.......  and   gorge  from the  chocolate waterfall .......i mean i get it it sort of   not  much   ........but cruises......   are  just  to eat...... drink........ and........   watch third  rate  cabaret  acts ...(unless  it is a  swingers cruise.........  or  some  debauchery of some  kind of  cruise  i know  you can book them ).....   which are mostly the staff ) .........which  you can  see in any  shit place  usa.........i mean you are basically stuck in the ocean at the  ships  mercy.......but as i have  said  ........there is not  much to do ......... except   dress up to sit  down ...which to me is  the purest height of  insanity  on every  level ........and they theme dress  to ......i even know  of  people  that   have  clothes  especially for  cruises ........which i really  do not  get  at all .....cruise  clothing ......worst of  all they are registered in third world  shithole  countries  .....to avoid  certain  rules and  regs  and   maritime laws .......and  wages   ....so that will tell you all you need to know  ......

As long as  there  are  masses  to  to fill those  tin cans of the  sea .....they will keep  going .......

Locals in Juneau, Alaska are looking to get cruise ships banned from ports one day a week.
Locals in Juneau, Alaska are looking to get cruise ships banned from ports one day a week.

They’re delivering a stern warning.

Fed up with thousands of tourists turning up in literal boatloads nearly every day during the warmer months, Juneau, Alaska is taking drastic measures.

Politicians in the 49th state’s capital city are preparing to vote in “ship free Saturdays” — which would bar cruise ships with over 250 people from coming to port that weekend day, plus the Fourth of July.

Locals in Juneau are hoping a law will be passed to keep away cruise ships — for at least one day a week. AP

“It’s about preserving the lifestyle that keeps us in Juneau, which is about clean air, clean water, pristine environment and easy access to trails, easy access to water sports and nature,” resident Deborah Craig told the Associated Press, as to why she supports the concept.

She added that her neighbors in the city with a population of 32,000 aren’t trying to be unfriendly — they’ve just dealt with too many tourists taking advantage of its natural beauty.

“It’s about volume. It’s about too much — too many in a short period of time overwhelming a small community.”

This is only the latest tourism pushback from hotspot destinations as travel volume continues to hit historic highs.

Locals in Barcelona, Spain resorted to spraying foreigners with water guns as an aggressive keep-out method while Fuji, Japan recently blocked views of its iconic mountain.

Bar Harbor, Maine also tried to cap cruise arrivals, but opponents have dragged the town into federal court.

However, shop owners like Laura McDonnell in Juneau don’t belhieve this is for the best.

McDonnell, who makes 98% of her revenue during tourist time told AP that having visitors is about “local businesses that rely on cruise passengers and our place in the community.”

Tourists, coming to see Alaska’s natural beauty, are pushing locals to their limits. AP

“I think that as a community, we really need to look at what’s at stake for our economy.”

Juneau’s “ship free Saturdays” bill will be voted on October 1 — unless unlikely action regarding the proposal is taken by August 15.
