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 .

Booking on board ! Double bubb...

By Josephine Wright

Hi Cruisers, I was at a bit of a loss for what to say this week until I started to do my Bon Voyages. I realised how many cruisers (some had been on a few) did not realise the benefits of booking on board let alone that you could.It does depend on the cruise company, So I thought why not share the extras you might receive if you book on board.First of all I would recommend that you do this when you have booked with us for the cruise to start with as this may trigger the double bubble I was br...

Whats the best cruise?...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

………… a friend asked me the other night, a friend who has never cruised before. Well, where to start, what to say! I asked her what she would be looking for in a cruise, “just the best cruise” was her response – helpful!So where do you start finding ‘the best cruise’, because let’s be honest, what suits one person won’t suit another. What do you want from your cruise? Now that is a good starting point. Is it for two adults or a ...
