Cruise ships still find a Haitian berth !

Maybe instead of this the ships should be taken by the Governments and used as hospital ships / temporary accommodation for the people suffering.

Without reading the linked article - I can tell you from a similar one that they are also delivering aid collected from Puerto Rica, and all profit from the trips is going directly to the relief effort.
Personally I think its a good thing.
