Default Re: Ship's Registration

Like many corporations, RCI is avoiding paying taxes(do you have any idea of the tax situation in Norway)and this is common to other lines, Carnival and some Princess ships. While I have been an investor in all of the above listed lines at one time or another, I agree its time to loose the flag of Liberia . I have always been suspect of "flags of convience" for the cruise ship industry. I would perfer to see ships registered in countries that have more strict maritime regulations(but at the same time, allow the line to make a profit). Having the ships US flagged would never work as the cruise would be so costly, few could afford it, not to mention the staffing and crewing of such vessels.
I am with everyone else...lets find another country to register these cruise ship in.
