Sorry, I should have added that NCL increased their surcharges and would affect anyone booking after the 20th June.We booked in February and were charged fuel costs at that time, I think it was about 1% less than the current charge.

Where did you see this extra charge, small print? I am also on the Jade this saturday, and was not aware that I would have to pay any extra. Is this because you have booked late?

We booked in March/April direct from their website so never used a T/A or spoke to anyone. I have emailed them to request that the service charges are removed as we prefer to pay cash as and when... I only noticed the $11 per adult per day fee = $308! when reading the Q & A on website - I aam aware the costs have risen, but an extra £150 for just 1 couple?>?? THAT SEEMS A COMPLETE RIP OFF - NOT JUST A SUPPLEMENT lol. Anyway if you would like to say hi we are Chris Yates party in cabin 11534, perhaps meet up for a drink?

Have you noticed how much it costs to fill your car recently....well imagine how much it costs to fill a cruise ship....All mainstream cruiselines charge a fuel surcharge these days and you T/A should have made you aware of this fact.

You can have the $280 service charge taken off. Just go to reception and sign a form. It's that simple. All cruise lines I've been on do it. I tip who I want to tip. A tip is voluntary not compulsory. I don't know about the fuel supp though. If you booked and paid before a certain date they can't charge extra but I don't have specific details. Pam.

My Dream Cruise

By Edward Griffiths

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship. Here is that itinerary:Southampton, United KingdomAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaNew York, United StatesAt SeaAt Sea Christmas...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
