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.
Until the twelth of never, and as the song says "thats a long long time" Put more prosaically-we are stuck with it, I think!Cynthia.
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.
Now you're showing your age ...what about Donny O.
You are a person of considerable taste and class----which of course means I am a Mathis fan, too!Cynthia.

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.
Thank you to your self and Bradbury i suppose it depends on how long term there supply contracts are but nice to hear they are looking at it?
