Does anyone really think another $3-400 bucks is gonna deter those folks from spending their winter in spots like this?
Totally agree.

We spent 5 months in the Bahamas 2009-2010 and The $300 fee was the least of our financial concerns (we did not really have any - financial or otherwise)

$300 is a piss in the ocean compared to the overall cost to take some time out and cruise the Bahamas - Priceless.

now, if they can only import some decent wine and steak, that's what the place really need ;-)
