Sixty miles from Haiti's devastated earthquake zone, luxury liners dock at private beaches where passengers enjoy jetski rides, parasailing and rum cocktails delivered to their hammocks. Oasis of the Seas, the world's biggest and most expensive cruise ship ever built docked as normal at Labadee beach in northern Haiti despite the deadly earthquake a week ago that devastated the Caribbean nation.
