Panama Canal Rate Hikes?
"July 23: A proposed additional $20-per-passenger charge for of the Panama Canal toll could prompt cruise lines to consider deploying their ships away from the Panama Canal, according to press reports. A rate hike, if it is imposed, would take effect in October. "
Can you say "Increased Port Charges"??? Excuse me, I guess they are "Passenger Tariffs" nowdays. I'd be surprised to see ships bypassing the Canal though.
