Caribbean cruises leave wave of bitter merchants - Article Photos 2/4

In this Sept. 26, 2012 photo, street vendor Paul Davy sells wooden statues to tourists who disembarked from the Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas cruise ship in Falmouth, northern Jamaica. Trade groups say the flourishing cruise ship industry injects about $2 billion a year into the economies of the Caribbean, the world’s No. 1 cruise destination, but critics complain that it produces relatively little local revenue because so many passengers dine, shop and purchase heavily marked-up shore excursions on the boats or splurge at international chain shops on the piers.
