  1. We had permission to leave the ship for the night, and permission to bring 3 of our relatives on board for a tour the following day.
  2. It was an Around The World cruise, We had a fantastic trip, that is until we got to St.John N.B. It all started like this. We got off the ship in Halifax, N.S. on July 02/19 to overnight with family. The ship moved to St.John that night and we drove to catch the ship the next day. All went well and we boarded the ship with family to show them around. A few days later the ships purser wanted to know if we had trouble with the Port authority, to which I replied "not at all". Well he said the ship was fined $600.00 and he would pass it on to us. I wanted to know why? I was told that the union has a deal with the ships to handle luggage. What luggage? We had one small 20"x 13" bag that my wife and I shared. Contents my CPAP, meds, PJ's and toothbrush. No one questioned the bag and were all friendly. Now if the union is that hard up for money, I would be ashamed to be part of this union. While we were cruising ATW lots of people got on and off and I never heard of any trouble in other ports. The good news is that the ship decided to cover the cost, but that does not make it right.Being a Canadian I am ashamed of this kind of treatment in my own country.
