Alaska looks to lower cruise passenger tax


The Alaskan government is currently in talks with cruise ship operators to reduce the incoming passenger tax for cruise liners that take the inside passage.

Several cruise ship operators have cited tax prices for the reason of carrying less passengers through the northern country.

Currently, passengers are forced to pay a $46US entry tax when passing through Alaska. Local reports are suggesting that the government is looking at reducing the amount by almost $12US or up to $23US, effectively halving the tax.
