St. Kitts Report Sign of Times?

Sometimes, an idea begins to grow and take root in the unlikeliest of places. Like the isle of St. Kitts, a tiny tourist stop in the Caribbean Sea, just east of the Virgin Islands and due north of Venezuela.

It was there that the St. Kitts government this week released travel statistics concerning both the cruise and the airline industries.

Cruising to St. Kitts is up 10 per cent. Flying to St. Kitts is down 4 per cent.

Could this be the first real indicator — or even another one — that travelers would rather take a cruise ship than a plane? Is the worm starting to turn…that flying has become such an unpleasant experience that it is to be utilized only when necessary?

What do you think?
