    So - which would you prefer ? to be one of the 14,000 passengers dumped in Basse Terre or one of the 14,ooo inhabitants of Basse Terre on whom this mass of humanity has been dumped ? The cruise line schedulers and St Kitts officials who allowed this to happen should make themselves available to receive the comments of both parties - my guess is that the comments will be ripe ones.
