PREVIOUS BOARD ACTION:
At its meeting of September 15, 2004, the Board of Harbor Commissioners adopted Order 6806 approving short-term Agreement No. 85 1 with Magical Cruise Company. This Agreement was for the period from May 1, 2005, through September 15, 2005, for the nonexclusive, preferential use of Berth 93A & B and adjacent cruise passenger terminals on Saturdays. The agreement set a Minimum Passenger Guarantee of $182,4.16, based on $4.00 passenger fee charged upon embarkation and disembarkation.
1. Magical Cruise Company, Limited, dba Disney Cruise Lines (DCL), has operated family oriented cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida, to the Caribbean and the Bahamas since 1998. DCL proposes to operate a 1,754-passenger vessel from Los Angeles for weeklong sailings to Mexico beginning in May 2008. The term of the proposed agreement with DCL is for the period from May 1, 2008, through September 15, 2008, for the occupancy of Berths 93A & B on nonexclusive, preferential basis. A minimum guarantee of $285,025 is contained in the Agreement, based on 22,801 passengers at a $6.25 passenger fee. This fee is to include wharfage, dockages and stores, and is to be assessed on both embarking and disembarking passengers. Additional revenue will accrue from all other Tariff No. 4 charges. A layday fee of $7,500 per ship call, terminal operator charges for gangway operations, and other ship related charges are additional compensation. The Port is committed to balancing its operation as the busiest port in the nation and its responsibility as environmental steward. Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) is one result of this effort to reduce emissions in the harbor. Port engineers are currently designing infrastructure required for the implementation of AMP at the cruise terminal. Construction of the AMP structure will not be completed during the term of this Agreement. DCL has agreed to AMP their vessels on future calls when the AMP infrastructure has been completed and is operational. In the meantime, DCL has agreed to use low sulfur fuel and comply with the vessel speed reduction program.
The Director of Environmental Management has determined that the proposed action is exempt from the requirements of the ,California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in accordance with Article 111, Class 1 (14) of thd Los Angeles City CEQA Guidelines.
