Good news! Six Carnival brands end fuel surcharge

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On December - 4 - 2008

Carnival Corporation just announced that is will suspend fuel supplements for its six North American brands effective for voyages departing on or after December 17. The suspension applies to Carnival Cruise Lines, Costa Cruises, Cunard Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and The Yachts of Seabourn.

For passengers alreayd booked a refund of the supplement will be made in the form of a shipboard credit for bookings within the final payment period for departures on or after December 17. Bookings outside of the final payment period for departures on or after that date will be adjusted to remove the supplement.

“As the price of oil has dropped to $46 per barrel, it has now reached a level where we are able to suspend the fuel supplement,” said Bill Harber, director of marketing for Carnival Corporation & plc. Harber cautioned that the fuel supplement could be re-instated if oil prices increase significantly.

Carnival said it may have to re-instate the supplement of up to $9 per person, per day (except for Seabourn, which would be up to $15 per person, per day) should the price of light sweet crude oil according to the New York Mercantile Exchange Index rise above $70 per barrel.
