This may or may not have any impact on the way cruise lines do business in the US. From reading this, probably not.

 

But then, the way the cruise industry went completely bonkers a few years back over a relatively minuscule port tax in Alaska, makes me wonder. They ran in circles screaming and shouting, paid off a lot of our Legislators and took our then governor down to Florida to their big annual wine and dine gathering and pumped him full of so much cruise line lying propaganda and misinformation it was pathetic. Of course, during the next legislative session these minions voted the tax out.
