As most of these tourists are on an "all-incluse" package, it makes little sense for them to spend ANY money off-shore (and if, then for cheap souvenirs, mostly). So besides the tons of particulate filled exhaust gases, these ships do not bring much more to the places they're visiting.

These hideous ships are simply mobile environmental disasters producing thousands of tons of CO2, and thousands of tons of effluent, polluted bilge water and other mess for our already strained oceans.
