    Those Coloreds Won't Leave Ships

      but this is looking more and more like a great deal for CCL and another $2000 toilet seat for taxpayers

      IF the contract price really is $249,000,000 as has been posted

      and IF it comes out to something like $200-250 per person a day

      look at those numbers

      for a family of say 4 staying in an inside cabin the total would be $800-1000 a day or $24000-30000 a month
      over 6 months as high as $144000-180000

      for a third of that price you could be the family a brand new double wide trailor
      or for half a decent condo in most parts of the country

      FEMA "negotiated this contract in a matter of just a few days
      given the bad press Washington is getting to me they will pay almost anything to look better

      we have been on 18 cruises in the last 12 years
      an "average" price for an inside cabin has been $700-900 a week, a balcony $900-1200

      so it sure looks like taxpayers are paying at least TWICE the price we fay for a "full" cruise which includes port charges, taxes, fuel for 2000 miles, entertainment, etc etc

      all this for 3 of the oldest most fuel innefficient ships CCL owns that were near the end anyway

      does not smell right to me
