Sorry, rates set by whom? If it's set by the SXM government, no problem. Set by the cruise lines?? That I have a problem with..

Regardless, I can't see the cruise lines being too happy with taxi drivers refusing to take customers to the French side. Someone could still convince me otherwise, but all I see so far is that the taxi drivers union is wrong..

Basically like a tour booked on the ship. The ship works with a port agent for a tour, what it includes and the price that the ship sells it for. I think the ship must sell a trip to Sunset and back for $16pp. Could be on a bus or a larger taxi.

I am not saying it is right or wrong, just relaying what I was told.

OK. Still not sure how that figures into them refusing to take people to the French side, etc.

Can't blame the non member taxis for not wanting to honor another taxis fare that they would get nothing out of. I would have just taken the prepaid wrist band off and paid another taxi to take me back to the ship where I would then demand a refund for the return trip from the excursion department on the ship.

Agreed, I don't blame the non member taxis either. I would be pretty angry at the situation, but as you say, I would just pay again and complain to the ship.

I'll take what ever I can get. I think it happened once before too.
