No Richard, you're wrong and Travis is right. Everybody knows what happend in Belize. So think about all those people who still book trips on Hughes boats. What kind of mindset would you call that? "Just being a stupid tourist on holiday" mindset? Like I said, there was a hurricane coming (and everybody knew it). Like you said, tourists just want to be tourists and have fun. That's a dangerous combination buddy. All you have to do is ask. Oh, no hurricane evacuation plan? Sorry, cancel my trip--I don't stay on boats during hurricanes. PERIOD. Boat owner greed and poorly trained crew? Yes. Tourist greed and stupidity? Yes again.
