In this Oct. 2, 2012 photo, U.S. And Puerto Rico's flags fly as tourists walk along the dock where a cruise ship anchors in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Trade groups say the flourishing cruise ship industry injects about $2 billion a year into the economies of the Caribbean, the world’s No. 1 cruise destination, but critics complain that it produces relatively little local revenue because so many passengers dine, shop and purchase heavily marked-up shore excursions on the boats or splurge at international chain shops on the piers.
