    I find that a lot of Cruise Ship passenger Visitors have been eating in the Restaurants,Cafe’s last year.
    Every time I went to my favorite spot Angeline’s in St.Georges run by Mr.Wesley Furbert it was crowded with
    Cruise Ship Tourist as many other restaurants in the area.
    The Tourist want a taste of Bermudian Cuisine- not buying gifts like they used to especially if there going to find items made in China on back – of some of them.
