Strike Disrupts Cruise Traffic at Costa Rican Ports

Costa Rica's Tico Times reports that a strike by dockworkers at Port Limon on the country's Caribbean coast caused Holland America's Zuiderdam to have to bypass the port yesterday. Port Limon is a popular port on cruises to the western Caribbean, and several other cruise lines have upcoming calls scheduled there. There is no indication how long the work stoppage will continue.
