After reading this article and comments I have to give my thoughts and experience. We sailed on the Destiny out San Juan last year. First of all the cruise was a nightmare straight from hell. There were some many people on board who had unruly kids everywhere and CCL did nothing. They don't care what people do. There were kids throwing cups from on top level of the atrium to the bottom floor...security was right there and did nothing. As for the Puerto Ricans on board we had half of San Juan on board. There is no such thing as a minority anymore. Lets face it and be honest...why should Puerto Ricans be treated better then anyone else? When we go to their country we are expected to learn spanish and thier customs...why don't they do that for us in return. The PR
's onboard the Destiny were out of control. Screaming in the halls,cutting in lines, too loud at dinner etc. Personally I do not agree with the cruise lines dropping the prices so low that the PR
's get on board. Why don't they drop the prices for us on the mainland as they do for the people in PR
? With 85% of the people in PR
on wellfare how the heck can they afford a cruise? I am sorry but if people can't act like humans when they are around other people then they should not be allowed to sail. I have some very good PR
friends who are good hard working and affluent people however I also know that there are alot of down right rude, ignorant and ill mannered PR
's who should not be on board.
I know a lot you will completely disagree but I am sick and tired of the oh POOR minorities...who take complete advantage of REAL americans and live off of us. The way that PR
's treat us white US citizens is deplorable. If it wasn't for us those people would not be able to afford a cruise even if it is dirt cheap. If it wasn't for the USA....they could have very easily been taken over by CASTRO. I will never ever apologize for feeling this way. I have spent my entire life working my *** off to stay out of poverty. I have never ever taken one penny of welfare, paid my own college, worked full time and went to school full time, bought my first home when I was 23. Not once did I ever ask anyone for a penny. Just maybe if these minorites would take advantage of the programs available to them they might might something out of themselves. And just maybe they would get the respect that they so desire.
Just a note: My doctor is PR
and a very good individual who I call a friend. Even he is embarrassed by most of the PR
's...especially the ones here in the US. One last note...I can't stand it when the PR
's here fly their PR
flag...whats with that? I say either get rid of that PR
flag or get the hell out of our country and go back to where you came from. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.....
