Default Gov't taxes and fees

Does anyone know what the gov't taxes and fees that get added onto cruise price are for? I knew what port charges were, when those were separate. Just wondering what we are paying for now.
Thanks,
Marty

Hi Marty:

As I understand it, the government taxes and fees that are added, generally cover:

port taxes which cover the disembarkation for each port, similar to a gateway tax that you pay for airline tix. As far as I know these are the "taxes" that we pay.

A good resources to check with would be the Attorney General of Florida. I had questions regarding fees on my cruise, etc., and I was directed to their office who gave me a detailed accounting.
