Senators Introduce Bill So Cruise Ships Can Sail to Alaska Without Stopping in Canada
Both senators from Alaska have introduced new legislation that would allow cruise ships to sail to Alaska without a stop in Canada. U.S. Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan have introduced the Alaska Tourism Recovery Act in response to Canada prohibiting cruise ships from visiting any of their ports until 2022. Due to the Passenger Vessel Services Act, foreign flagged cruise ships cannot transport passengers from one U.S. port to another without stopping in a foreign country. The Alaska Tourism Recovery Act would allow cruise ships to sail roundtrip from Seattle to Alaska in 2021 due to the extraordinary impacts of the COVID–19 pandemic on Alaskan communities.
