I just wanted to add....that, when you said, I certainly have choices in the cruise lines that I select and without a doubt, it will not be Royal Caribbean, ever again!
This would have been the same result, no matter what line you had booked. I would make a guess,that with some you would not have gotten port and taxes back. Keep that in mind when you look for a next cruise." IF" by chance RCI fit your bill...as my Mother used to say..don't cut your nose off to spite your face...
Trip, with her book & tea!
