CRUISE SHIP ORDERED OUT OF HARBOR

I was one of the passengers on the Oceana refused permission to land last week.
What totally disgusting behaviour this was on the part of your government and agents. The anti-U.S. feeling this generated on the ship was intense. We were disgusted by the lot of you and will avoid all holidays which involve contact with the U.S. You were so very rude to subjects from one of your best allies. Clearly we must choose our friends better in the future and leave you to fight your own wars.
On the positive side, I understand the island of Antigua had a day of trade never before experienced when the Oceana has been in port.
May P & O continue to boycott your silly little island – there are many better in the Caribbean!
