New $50.00 Alaska Cruise Ship Passenger Tax
Please note that the State of Alaska recently imposed a new fee for all cruises entering Alaskan waters. The fee is not specific to any port of call, but instead applies to all cruises entering Alaskan waters. The fee, like any other GTF, is fully refundable in the event of cancellation of the cruise. The fee applies both to new bookings and to those currently booked. The fee is $50 per person for the first and second guest sharing a stateroom and $46 for the third through eighth guest sharing a stateroom. Cruise lines are required by law to collect this fee from all passengers and acts only as an agent of the State of Alaska in collection of the fee.
