Fuel Surcharges


From Crystal Cruise home page

"The rising cost of fuel continues to affect virtually everyone, and the impact on Crystal Cruises' daily operations is no exception. While we had hoped to absorb the additional expenses associated with soaring fuel prices, we find that this has not been possible while maintaining the integrity of our product.

Oil prices have increased substantially since we announced our 2007 cruise fares. As a result, effective July 17, 2006, we must institute a fuel surcharge of $5.00 per person, per day on all 2007 voyages. We will protect any 2007 bookings that are made and paid prior to July 17, 2006, at the current fare, without the fuel surcharge. There will be no change to the current fuel surcharge of $4.00 per person, per day that is currently in effect for all 2006 voyages."


I have been expecting to see this on all cruise lines for some time now. I am suprised it took this long, wondering how long it will take for the rest of the lines to follow.
