What is a ship’s fund and what does it include?

A ship’s fund is a sum of money that is collected by the crew of a ship to cover the costs associated with sailing and stopping at various ports and marinas. This money is usually divided among the passengers in an equitable manner. The costs covered by the ship’s fund may vary by destination but may include payment of taxes in national parks, tourist and landing fees on islands, anchorage and mooring fees at some ports of call, and any additional supplies of freshwater, fuel, gas, fresh produce, and other items.
