Can anyone confirm whether there are simlar Airline Passenger Ticket Taxes paid by the millions of passengers who buy tickets on the the cruise ships ??

If not - why not ?

Read somewhere that some of these ships manage something equivalent to about 14cms distance for 5 litres of ( presumably untaxed ) diesel fuel...And absolutely all for holiday/leisure travel and absolutely zero for wealth creating business travel....

Seems the playing field regarding holidaying passengers travelling by air and those by sea is more than unlevel - it's vertical...
