Report: 10,000 Tourists Abandon Plans to Visit French Caribbean

March 3, 2009 By: Joe Pike


According to St. Lucia’s local newspaper, The Star, strikes continue to disrupt travel to French Caribbean and have forced nearly 10,000 people to cancel trips there. The paper cited Paris-based National Travel Agencies Organisation’s report that around 10,000 tourists have abandoned holidays to the islands after a number of hotels were forced to close, while several cruise operators have canceled scheduled visits. Royal Caribbean, a cruise operator, has confirmed that its ship Vision of the Seas has canceled planned stops at both islands, The Star reports. In a statement released earlier this week, the Martinique Tourism Authority said it was “100 percent open for tourists.” However, violence has escalated on the island since the comments were issued, with protesters blocking off a number of streets in the capital Fort-de-France last week, according to The Star.
