So it is the proposed rule change as Rich alluded to. Funny how many of us have already forgotten about that or only were thinking of the west coast and Ensenada.
It is a profoundly stupid rule change. The one guy quoted in the news article got it right...they are using a shotgun approach for something that is at most a small issue. And as for NCL and their original whining, all I can say is that come this May we can say "and then there was one" for their ships in Hawaii.
