Barbados, more than a tourist resort

Canada.com The name alone conjures up those "S's" that we all long for during the long, dark, cold days of winter: sun, sea, and surf. (The other "S" is frankly up to you.)

Ships galore | Barbados Today

 Barbados Today: "More than 12,000 visitors are expected here on seven ships to the Bridgetown Port tomorrow.

Even as the Barbados Port Inc reports this as a positive development, particularly for tourism stakeholders, the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry believes a good mixture of taxis and tour operators could perhaps help to spread the possible benefits around in moving the visitors from place to place."
