Word of mouth

Cruise line credibility at stake in waste disposal
The cruise ship has taken a beating over wastewater and sewage dumping in Alaska. One company was fined millions of dollars, and rightfully so. The rest of the industry has obviously been tainted.

Flightseeing supports local business
I would suggest that everybody who is getting ready to sign the petition and vote for the initiative to limit flightseeing operations to six days a week take enough time to stop, look and listen.
