  1. I lived in Marathon for several years.
    The ships already have plenty of ports, please don't kill our living coral reef for your convenience.

  2. I m a tour director/guide that also makes money off cruise ships/passengers, sometimes.
    But, i dont like big ships and over crowding. Sometimes, less is more. Limit the ships/number/size. Save the environment. Dont get greedy. Balance. Win/win.
    Good luck Key West 🙏

  3. Santos find a better way you're better than that, protection of coastal coral reef is beneficial for business too. Santos is smart he'll do it …before becoming vice President

    BlessUp INDIA 🇮🇳 and Wion StaySafe

  4. I don't understand the need for cruise ships? This is a luxurious way to destroy oceans! It's high time we need to reconsider our vacations!

  5. I am from Miami, and I remember Key West before the cruise ships and tourists. It was were locals went to chill, while tourists went to South Beach. Now, Key West is…very very different. Very commercial, and BUSY. it is no longer the peaceful oasis. GENTRIFICATION has no boundaries.

  6. They should built floating port away from the island where cruise ship could unload and load passengers. They should consider the design like floating airport similar to Kansai International Airport of Osaka Japan.

  7. To sustain, business is not necessary, what is necessary is to lower greedy expectations. Print $$s, problem solved. Cruises contribute negatively to everything they are involved in.

  8. The "Key" is finding what works for all involved and making it sustainable. If the Coral Reef, Pollution and Heavy Traffic on the "Charm" of what Key West represents is One side. VS
    Destination for travellers to have the experience of such things.
    a) Charge a Tax(stipend) that goes directly in the Coral sustainment fund for its preservation value.
    b)Limit the "Customer" traffic to allow both local and tourist volume to minimal acceptable impact.
    c) Possibly develop Tourist excursion cruises instead to keep the BIG Boats away from the coastal waters , provides local employment for smaller vessels to bring them into shore.
    Apart of the Package and I mean commercially NOT row boats or could be like the personal Gondola ones used in Italy along the Canal ways. Just some ideas is all.
    Oh and have been to Key West in the mid 80's and Loved the Charm,Locals and small village feel to it ALL The water was Like Chrystal and the fish were a real life Aquarium…

  9. Funny only commenting on florida when cruiseships go everywhere around the world. Stfu about climate. We have tyrannical governments abandoning human rights wtf is wrong with people. We need to balance your nonsense the junk being dumped into water on othersides.

  10. May be cruise ships ships should dock in the ocean, and bring passengers to shore by small to mid size boats.

  11. “The sovereigns of the world,” writes ‘Abdu’l-Bahá [The eldest son and
    successor of Baha’u’llah (The promised one of all ages)] in elaboration
    of this theme, “must conclude a binding treaty, and establish a
    covenant, the provisions of which shall be sound, inviolable and
    definite. They must proclaim it to all the world, and obtain for it the
    sanction of all the human race… All the forces of humanity must be
    mobilized to insure the stability and permanence of this Most Great
    Covenant… The fundamental principle underlying this solemn Pact should
    be so fixed that if any government later violate any one of its
    provisions, all the governments on earth should arise to reduce it to
    utter submission, nay the human race as a whole should resolve, with

    every power at its disposal, to destroy that government.”

    (Shoghi Effendi, The World Order of Baha'u'llah, p. 192)

    “The unity of the human race, as envisaged by Bahá’u’lláh, implies the
    establishment of a world commonwealth in which all nations, races,
    creeds and classes are closely and permanently united, and in which the
    autonomy of its state members and personal freedom and initiative of the
    individuals that compose them are definitely and completely
    safeguarded. This commonwealth must, as far as we can visualize it,
    consist of a world legislature, whose members will, as the trustees of
    the whole of mankind, ultimately control the entire resources of all the
    component nations, and will enact such laws as shall be required to
    regulate the life, satisfy the needs and adjust the relationships of all
    races and peoples. A world executive, backed by an international Force,
    will carry out the decisions arrived at, and apply the laws enacted by,
    this world legislature, will safeguard the organic unity of the whole
    commonwealth. A world tribunal will adjudicate and deliver its
    compulsory and final verdict in all and any disputes that may arise
    between the various elements constituting this universal system. A
    mechanism of world inter-communication will be devised, embracing the
    whole planet, freed from national hindrances and restrictions, and
    functioning with marvelous swiftness and perfect regularity.”
    [Baha’u’llah (The promised one of all ages), The Proclamation of Baha’u’llah (Glory of God), p. x]

    " The enormous energy dissipated and wasted on war, whether economic or
    political, will be consecrated to such ends as will extend the range of
    human inventions and technical development, to the increase of the
    productivity of mankind, to the extermination of disease, to the
    extension of scientific research, to the raising of the standard of
    physical health, to the sharpening and refinement of the human brain”,

    [Baha’u’llah (The promised one), The Proclamation of Baha'u'llah, p. xii]
