The U.S. Coast Guard wants cruise ships and the ports where they dock to use X-r
The U.S. Coast Guard wants cruise ships and the ports where they dock to use X-ray machines and metal detectors to ensure passengers do not carry weapons on board, a requirement that Thomas F. Valleau, Portland's transportation and waterfront director, says could cost $100,000 annually. The rules apply to ships that sail in international waters for more than 24 hours, so would not apply to the Scotia Prince, which takes 11 hours to cruise to Nova Scotia. The city receives $40,000 annually from docking fees for the cruise ships. Details.
