Ocean Cruise Lines Cancel Amsterdam Calls Over Tourist Tax

Ocean Cruise Lines Cancel Amsterdam Calls Over Tourist Tax

 

Jazz, that is a bit of an over-reaction to what the article said. Only MSC has said it is cancelling calls to Amsterdam and moving to Rotterdam.  The other lines have not stated one way or another what their plans are but most of them seem to be taking it in stride for now but have not ruled out making fewer calls in Amsterdam.

Not my title, Cruise Critic's.

Apparently I’m not reading the same article that you are. Has the article been changed since you read it?

 

The first paragraph that that I see is:

Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) today revealed it will replace most of its scheduled Amsterdam calls following the introduction of a controversial new tourist tax that will apply to all cruisers stopping over (not those who start or end their cruise) in the city.”

 

CMV and MSC do equal “Lines” (plural) in my book.

Isn't that what I said?

No, not as I read it. The report that CMV “will replace most of its scheduled Amsterdam calls” is not complatable with your claim that “other lines have not stated one way or the other what their plans are.” Note that CMV “will replace”, not a claim that they are “thinking about” it.

 

IMO Cruise Critic properly used the used the plural “Lines” in their title referring to both CMV amd MSC cancelling/ dropping/ replacing Amsterdam calls despite your assertion to the contrary.

Seems this should be moved to a different forum as this doesn't have anything to do with River Cruising.

I thought it was relevant because it says that it doesn't affect river cruises.  Otherwise, somebody would start doing the Marion Lorne routine thinking it might. :classic_wink:
