ferguson - Answered a Question by Graham (07 Feb 09 23:20)

I can't quote from personal experience but this question has cropped up on other forums where the consensus is you do not have to pay exit or entry taxes, at least on Thomson cruises!. Maybe something to do with being in transit rather than visiting?

I notice that on Thomsons web site they specifically mention the tourist card of $10 for entrance to the Dom Rep and $20 for exit. It doesn't say which form of dollars but I presume US.

As Ferguson has said ...on other forums passengers that have actually been recently have said there is no fee to pay on entry or exit for cruise passengers. There has been quite a discussion about it and no one on a cruise ship has had to pay.

I have noticed the comments on other forums, however it is only in the past few weeks that Thomsons have added the item to their 'cost it' feature on their website. Why not ask them?

Just returned from Destiny via Dom rep, there were no entry or exit visa charges to pay if you have been on the cruise, I am not sure if the same applies if you have done cruise and stay though, but cruise only no payment...believe me...happy cruising.

When you buy a fly cruise from the UK all ports taxes& transfers are included in the price so you have already paid .

Fred Olsen & a few Guinness!

By Barbara Hopley

On 15th December we headed to Liverpool to join Fred Olsen Boudicca for annual Christmas Conference for 3 nights, the 1st night the ship stayed docked in port in Liverpool. This is a great city and the dock is right in the center opposite the Liver Building so within walking distance to the city. We didn’t have time to see Liverpool as we drove up in the morning leaving at 7am to arrive by 11am. Luckily the traffic was on our side so we arrived early. Myself & my colleague Teresa...

I have blogged about this before as there have been an unacceptable number of deaths in Swimming pools on-board cruise ships and yet only Disney Cruise lines employed actual Life guards to monitor their pools.Well it looks like things are changing. At the end of December Royal Caribbean started advertising for Lifeguards on their ships.The Post Stated that candidates will need to perform rescue of Guests in danger of drowning and be vigilant to potential accidents. Will be trained to administ...
