The Nation Newspaper is at it again:
“The sophisticated radiance class cruise ship Jewel of the Seas made its inaugural visit to the Bridgetown Port today docked with approximately 21 000 guests and 850 crew.”
21,000 passengers ???!!!
That is more than 3 times the size of Oasis Of The Seas, the world’s biggest cruise liner!

Do the truth and accurate reporting matter to The Nation Newspaper?
Just one day after we caught The Nation Newspaper publishing a fake photo of Grantley Adams International Airport, the newspaper is now reporting that 21,000 cruise ship passengers arrived in Bridgetown on Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas. (Nation News article Jewel brings 21,000 cruisers)
21,000 passengers must have been a tight fit in the cabins because the designed capacity of the Jewel of the Seas is 2,520 passengers and 842 crew – a fact I confirmed online from a few sources including the website of ship builder: Meyer Werft
My research expenditure was a few keystrokes and about 60 seconds.
Could it be that the best journalists and hardest working staff of The Nation Newspaper…
… are now working together at Barbados Today?
