    port charges, taxes and fees

    yes but total price keeps going up- I just want to make sure the fees are legimate or don't call them that. that would fall under truth in advertising

    port charges, taxes and fees

    clarify above question- total charges at 3149 for two of us and ad for cruise was 1144 each(2288) or 430 per person port charges, taxes and fees
  3. each time I sail the port charges taxes and fees go up and the savings disappear. I understand they can vary greatly and maybe 450 per person is not that high- but how can I be assured these are legitimate and not including commission fees and they are collecting charges that were not levied? for example, what is panama canal charges, and seattle, LA or Miami charges vs acappoco or costa rica?

    North To Alaska from Seattle

    its 23 as I type here- I like the carribean, but I can drive to Seattle and get on ship without all the airport security hassle and airline ticket costs. but a couple more cold days could change my opinion where I want to be.

    North To Alaska from Seattle

    what a great vacation and fun week on Norwegian Star last spring. We traveled with 6 other friends from Wenatchee- can't wait to go again. [URL]http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5337080081187612135[/URL]

    Alaska

    [URL]http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=cd8920decdc495148810[/URL] may was actually not that cold. we seldom ate on deck due to temps in low 70's- it rained only half day. I would go again in May and perhaps sept. as the rates are so much lower then.

    [URL]http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=802daf3f8e8c10b1961f[/URL] thank you for allowing me to share our wonderful week we had on Norwegian Star in May from Seattle to Alaska!

Good thing they cannot tax the memories we have of that fun week with 3 other couples. Dennis:p

    Share Your Secrets!!!

    I like Windows Movie maker best- Muvee Maker is another that comes with come computers, but it only allows you to add 50 pictures with standard version. after you open Windows Movie maker, under file, click on add to collection- first you music- when it appears, then drag it to the audio portion. then go back and hit add to collection, each picture you want (or group). when they are added to your collection, then drag them down to video portion of your screen- you can shorten or lengthen the time picture is shown by stretching or shortening that frame. to add words, go to tools, and click on titles and credits. when you are all done, then you will hit capture video. I would reccomend saving your work as you go along, as my computer would freeze occassionally and I would have to reboot.. good luck. you can paste your video when done on places like godtube.com or google.com- a great way to share with friends without sending them the file or disc.

    Should cruise lines pass taxes on to customers?

    taxes are always paid by the consumer- I just do not think it is fair, the Alaska tax was passed last August, they knew about it, and after I booked a cruise in November, I have a written confirmation price- they now say it will be 50.00 more per person in a email confirmation? The agent is blaming his boss, the boss is blaming NCL, and NCL has not responded? Maybe Seattle can balance its budget by adding another tax on cruise ships?

    Taxes- Confirmation or boycott?

    [quote name='GORDONCHICK']I have never seen a booking confirmation that doesn't say taxes and port charges are subject to change. Also, the Alaskan $50pp tax thing has been in the national news since last spring, so it will be no surprise to us when our pricing is adjusted.[/quote] that is it exactly- why was it not included in price quote in November? It just seens strange to have a written confirmation and later get a email charge of 100.00 more?
