Peaceful protests in Labadee, Haiti prevented Freedom of the Seas calling at the cruise port. Even though the protests were loud it did prevent the large Royal Caribbean ship from letting passengers visit the port. Locals staged the protests from small boats as seen in the video below. The local people were protesting due to the country’s recent elections.

Freedom of the Seas was already docked at the port but no guests were allowed off. The cruise line said the protests would affect guests ability to enjoy Labadee. As a result the ship departed Labadee and spent a day at sea. Royal Caribbean is in contact with the local authorities as future calls at the port could be at threat.
