The Marella Discovery II

Cruise ships regularly visit Jamaica’s north coast, but yesterday, for the first time, a cruise ship docked at the Kingston Harbour. Port Royal to be exact. Most people are ecstatic, saying that this represents development and progress and prosperity. To be sure, it does, but it remains to be seen how this development will affect this historical site. (Apparently, there are still historically significant underwater sites yet to be explored.) It also remains to be seen how the development, along with the thousands of tourists, will affect the nearby community, as well as marine life. The area is already vulnerable and plagued by garbage, so hopefully, the development is adhering to environmental standards. I wonder if the tourists will remain at the site, or if they will venture into Kingston.
