Title: Bahamas Cuts Off Cruise Line Cash Flow
Post by: Host Mike on October 22, 2018, 08:50:03 AM
"This week, the Bahamas’ Minister of Tourism told reporters that they will no longer pay cruise lines to bring them passengers. Why? Because too many stay on the boat as opposed to coming ashore to spend their money."

(ed:  We now learn that cuise passengers pay a port tax then the port government refunds money straight back to the cruise line)

I got off on our cruise last year only to see the town which we haven't been to in 15 years.
Nothing has changed & I'm sorry we didn't stay on the ship.
