Hawaiian Coastwise Cruises
Document Number: E7-22788
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-11-21
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection
This document proposes new criteria to be used by Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to determine whether non-coastwise- qualified vessels are in violation of the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA) when engaging in cruise itineraries in which passengers board at a U.S. port, the vessel calls at several Hawaiian ports, and then the vessel proceeds to a foreign port or ports for a brief period, before ultimately returning to the original U.S. port of embarkation where the passengers disembark to complete their cruise. CBP believes these itineraries are contrary to the PVSA because it appears that the primary objective of the foreign stop is evasion of the PVSA.
