Sorry you cannot disembark; the locals are revolting



Cruise ships are refusing to dock on the Caribbean island of Dominica due to violent civil unrest.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit bemoaned the "unwarranted blotch on our otherwise pristine record of peace" and said no more ships will dock until after the general election period, which starts today.

Skerrit has led the Caribbean island, home to 75,000 people, since 2004, but a failure to implement reforms and an alleged corruption scandal have cast a shadow over the vote.

Most of the unrest is centered on the towns of Marigot and Salisbury, which are considered strongholds for the opposition United Workers Party.

Calls by Azamara, Viking and Marella Cruises ships have reportedly been affected. Royal Caribbean, HAL and Princess Cruises are among the other lines which feature port calls in Dominica.

Protests have been taking place for a while and last month the US Department updated its travel advisory to 'Exercise Increased Caution,' adding that it is 'closely monitoring the recent demonstrations in Dominica.'
