    Victoria and the Jones Act.

    We have discussed the famous US Jones Act before. Foreign ships must visit a non-US port if carrying passengers from one US port to another US port. There have been attempts to repeal this law. We in Canada oppose any such moves. Victoria, B.C. will see about 150 cruise ship visits this year...

    Just found this on the Port of Tallinn website and thought it was very funny. I am sure there are other ports that find 'Crussengers" interesting, also. Where do YOU fit in? "Crussenger is a special type of passenger with an archaic family name "cruise passenger". He differs from a passenger...

    Blue lagoon - Our Fiji Islands Cruise

    Since we have lost all of the post-hack cruise reports from here, I thought I would post this to fill in the blank space for a while until we build this forum up again. In 1988, my wife and I flew to Australia, where we rented a camper van for 9 days to tour from Sydney to Brisbane and back...
