Cruise time reporting to 8840

As a Canadian snowbird, I fill out an 8840 annually. On occasion, we have taken a cruise which originates in the U.S. How is this time included in my Form 8840? Of particular concern is a recent Alaska cruise which originated and ended in Seattle, WA, but could be in the Caribbean or to Hawaii.

Response :

If you leave from Canada and go directly to the cruise ship and then return directly to Canada, you are considered to be β€œin transit.” These days are not counted towards your six-month allowance.
