The rules governing cruise ship travel are getting tougher.
Hawaii, the first state to legalize the industry, is among the few states still allowed to run the program.
Hawaiian Cruise Lines and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are looking at whether they can change those rules for commercial travelers.
Blacks and Hispanics are most likely to be affected by the new rules, but they’re also the groups that are most frequently targeted by cruise line operators.
The bureau is looking at what the agency considers reasonable changes to the current rules, which allow passengers to travel with one-way tickets, as well as a separate policy that allows them to book multiple-day tickets.
Black and Hispanic passengers face some of the strictest restrictions, as are those from other countries.
Hawkei, for example, requires passengers to wear seat belts, and passengers from all races, religions and ethnicities are required to wear face masks.
Blancmano said the bureau has a number of recommendations to make, including moving the policy from one-time travel permits to a continuous travel permit, which would allow a person to travel on the cruise ship for longer periods of time.
HawHawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources said it has also begun to study changes that would allow people from other parts of the country to travel without a permit.BLM officials say the bureau’s current regulations are too restrictive and should be changed to allow people to book longer stays.
In the past, the bureau said people from outside the state would not be able to book a cruise with a one-day pass or the cruise itself.
But the bureau last month made a major policy change allowing people from any state and country to book cruise trips.
Hawken said the policy change is good news for everyone.
It would allow some travelers to stay longer, she said.
“It’s going to help the industry because we don’t have to worry about having to go through a different system,” said Blancmanos sister-in-law, Marjorie.
The bureau has also launched a website that provides travelers with more information about the program and how to avoid potential problems.
Blanca said the website was an important tool in helping people understand the policy and how it applies to them.
Blanchemano, for one, said she would have been disappointed if the bureau had changed the rules.
She said her family is from Cuba, and she’s very much worried about the impact it would have on my children.
” Blancamanos said the new policy would be good for tourists from other places as well, but added it was good news not just for them but also for Hawaii and the people of the state.
Black and Hispanic residents of Hawaii face some strict rules, and many of them are also the ones that are the most likely not to have a valid permit.
Black and Latino residents are also most likely, if not the most, to be impacted by the changes, according to a report by the BLM.
