Not to promote a movie but has anyone seen Sicko? IF this is a true account, it makes me really sad for this country...

Well, I guess if it is only $5 p/p, that should be OK with me. Especially, considering that each cruiseship passenger will spend allot more than that on the fuel surcharges(imposed after the big rise in fuel costs). In fact, just one drink at one of the bars onboard could cost that much, or more.

I tend to agree with you, Frase: $5.00 here and there isin't much. But as Dave pointed out in another thread on the fuel surcharge, it's the cumulative effect that is going to eventually hurt. As Neil says, when everybody starts getting into the act, it could seriously raise the cost of cruising; or cut back the quality, or both; which those of us who have been cruising for a while would say has already been going on for quite some time.

Speaking of taxes, Honduras has a really good one. They do not impose any taxes on your arrival, but charge a "departure tax" of $33 per person to leave. I don't think this applies to cruise visitors at Roatan but we have to pay it each year when we fly home from our mission trip.

I consider anything that emanates from the mind of Michael Moore to be sick in it's own right.

St. Lucia does the same thing, or at least they did a few years ago.

Another one that's been added is for flights into Chile. If you're flying to Santiago to catch a ship you'll need US dollars at the airport. They only take cash and it's a $100. per person entry tax. There will be a Gov't official there to relieve you of your cash. I figure the guy walks out of the airport with fuller pockets everytime a flight from the US arrives.

Cheers, Neil
