I received this from one of the best people that I know at Princess...now it makes more sense.
Kim - NCF are part of our fare - they are not port fees and Princess is one
of the only lines that, after a class action suit in FL, are quoting as we
are legally required to do. It is the part of the fare that we choose not
to pay commission on - so it isn't port fees and thus not related to head
count. If the single fare
is 160%, then we charge 160% of NCF - if it is 200% then so is NCF.
Hope this helps -
