The cost of oil continues to effect all of us. For cruisers, that means in the form of increased costs in transportation fees to the port in addition to the fuel supplement fees that cruise lines now levy against passengers. When will this end?
Below are the details of this new increase:
Carnival, Costa, Cunard, Holland America, Princess and the Yachts of Seabourn will increase their current fuel supplement from $7 to $9 (USD) per person per day. The fuel supplement for third and fourth passengers will increase from $2 to $4 (USD) per person per day.
The new fuel supplement will apply to all new bookings effective June 12, 2008. The fuel supplement will not exceed $126 per person per voyage for the first and second passengers, and $56 per person per voyage for the third and fourth passengers in a stateroom.
For bookings made from April 21, 2008 to June 11, 2008, the current fuel supplement of $7 (USD) per person for the first two passengers, and $2 (USD) per person per day for the third and fourth passengers will apply.
Please remember that bookings made on or before June 11, 2008 will not be subject to the supplement increase.
