It appears that Marriott chartered a ferry to get their own paying guest out of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The way DAILY MAIL tells it, there was room for an additional 1300
passengers on said ferry.
But Marriott would only take their own guests and refused to help the 35 Americans who had been staying at other hotels.
Remember, they were in the U.S.Virgin Islands already,so these 35 people were not illegals.
