The Governor signed legislation this past Thursday to greatly lower the head tax. You can read more about it HERE.

Good News for Alaska Cruisers ? Sorry but I don't agree.
So they think that cruisers will be impressed because they have made a reduction of $11:50. Hardly a significant saving.
I would love to see the beauty of Alaska on a cruise but until they abandon the tax then I will be reluctant to take a cruise.There are a huge number of other fantastic places to go to.

My Opinion,for what it's worth is that the cruise leaders gave in too soon and as a result have weakened their chances of getting rid of the tax completely.They should have played hardball and told Alaska that unless they withdrew the tax completely then all cruise ships would be withdrawn and they would take their business somewhere else.

I reckon if they had stood firm then within 2 years Alaska would have given up and cruisers would be able to enjoy the beauty of Alaska again.
