Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Buckley (24 Oct 08 13:38)

This is so difficult to even guess at and today the OPEC ministers have agreed to decrease the oil supply so prices will stay at the current level or even increase again. Two bits of phrases come to mind "piece of string" and "short and curlies" I'm afraid. ... Neil.

Cliff or Johnny??? Prefer JM Myself.......Anyway, some of the airlines have announced dates for reductions/removal of fuel charges this week so lets hope the cruise lines do the decent thing & follow suit. Regards Wilba.

Picked this up on the web Announcement from Carnival October 20, 2008 - Carnival UK is to drop all fuel supplemements on new bookings for 2010 from October 31. It is also drawing up guidelines for customers to be reimbursed for 2008 and 2009 cruises if oil prices stabilise sufficiently. But while the risk of high prices persist, supplements will continue to be charged. In the event of a refund, it will be paid in the form of an on board credit.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. today announced that the company's fuel supplement will no longer apply to new Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruises bookings made on or after November 10, 2008, anywhere in the world, for sailings that depart on or after January 1, 2010. This decision takes into consideration the recent reductions in global fuel prices. The company has also established specific guidelines that will determine whether fuel supplement refunds will be provided for sailings that begin in 2009 and later, which were booked prior to November 10, 2008, if fuel prices remain below a specific price threshold.
