“It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of”

WASHINGTON — Federal officials are working to finish a proposed rule that threatens to dramatically alter the itineraries of many foreign-flagged cruise ships, such as those operated by Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean and others, by requiring much longer port stays.

Proposed rule feared to sink U.S. cruise industry
