Jones Act

Jump to last reply

I attempted to book a 1-night cruise from Seattle to Vancouver followed by a Vancouver to San Diego 4 nighter on HAL's Westerdam. The HAL agent said I couldn't do that because it violates the Jones Act.
I'm an attorney and I read the Jones Act and I disagree with HAL. The Act says I can't go between 2 US ports (embark and disembark) without a foreign port stop. Vancouver is clearly a foreign port as defined by the Act.
Two years ago I did a HAL cruise R/T Inside Passage from Seattle with a 4 hour stop in Victoria. Can't figure out why this trip I wanted is different.
Anyone else have similar experience?
