Abela - Answered a Question by Byrne (11 Jan 09 16:53)

My husband has booked a cruise on Msc Armonia last year for cruise departing next April through an American travel Agency and when he heard that Msc eliminated fuel surcharges even on those who have already booked their cruise, he wrote to the travel agent in USA (and we had already paid the full cruise amount). The agent made arrangements with MSC and yes we did recieve a monetary refund in our Visa of $107 dollars for a 12 night cruise. I think Msc did a very good thing about this....not always hearing the negative sides of this cruise line!!!!

It is possible the majority of cruise lines have opted out of a refund and are giving a credit on the seapass account, so when you recieive your tickets or you check-in at the port you will be notified as some have put a refund on the price of a barrel of crude oil being less than a certain amount and some have stated that is $60/65 so this might explain why your TA is saying they no nothing a bit like Manuel in Fawlty Towers but hope it works out OK for you and you do see a refund.

Life as a Crew Member The ...

By Elise Otaki

The endless rumours about crew life always tickle me – working 24 hours a day, getting paid next to nothing and sharing a room with 184 other people. The simple truth of the matter is – you do work long hours, you are away from home for long periods and it is blooming hard going sometimes BUT you get a job that takes you around the World! Surely a bit of overtime is worth that?I have to confess that I was lucky – I joined P&O in the Shore Excursions department, so I auto...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
