Head Tax

Silly people. Do you possibly think that maybe the cruise ships are pulling out because there is a decline in the amount of people traveling these days?(Due to the economy )

I work in the industry and have noticed a large decline in travelers. In fact I was even able to make a reservation on the Alaska State ferry, because there was space available. (Being a local resident that was really nice.) 5 dollars or 50.00 dollars is nothing when you're spending $5,000 to $15,000 for a cruise. I am sure a minimum of that amount is spent on coffee every month.
