It makes perfect sense to me that a single passenger would be charged 200% for port fees. Port charges are determined by estimating the total cost of docking the ship in all ports during a cruise. This amount is then divide by the total passenger capacity of the ship. Your client is booking a double cabin as a single guest. The port fees are included in the cruise fare of typically 150 to 200% of double occupancy rate. You are most likely upset because Princess considers the fees to be non-commissionable. You client could care less because the port fee charges are already in the cruise fare. Kim you feel cheated because you are not being paid commission on the second set of port fees? Remember that Princess did not have to offer the space to your client. It would be better for them to have two guests in the stateroom.
