  1. Just returned from a week in Nevis. Oh my. I cannot imagine all of those people from ships all over the island. There is a serious garbage
    problem. Soon there will be more disease and crimes etc. Why would you all spoil the only paradise left. I have been coming to the island since 1994. It will have an impact on the water as well. That just makes us sick. Guess we can cross that off our list for summer. Sounds like you will be running out the people who stay for longer times than an outing for one day and who will spend little money. There is nothing to buy. Cruise ship passengers will never appreciate a place so special. Please reconsider. Best to all the wonderful loving people there.
