Richie, I think the answer to your question may depend on the type of vacation you're planning. Royal Caribbean copped a lot of flack for continuing cruises to its private beach at Labadee shortly after the huge January 2010 earthquake that killed tens of thousands of people. Many questioned the morality of sending a bunch of sun-seekers to an island in ruins; others, among them many tourism experts, suggested that it was important to support the devastated economy through tourism. I suspect things are a little clearer now that we're over a year past the disaster, though there's no doubt the country is still suffering and continues to be racked with endemic crime and poverty. That said, as a cruise-line passenger, for example, it's highly unlikely you'll glimpse this side of things. CNN has a good resource on the 2010 RCL debate, with plenty of comments and other info to help you make your decision: http://bit.ly/frC4D9
