I am sorry I don't know - perhaps someone could contact David Selby at Thomsons UK and ask him - he is in charge of the cruise division !! The charge only applies up to 1st May 09 cruises but those going now and up to that date have the charge.

Im puzzled myself why the surcharge still crops up,but the surcharge seems to be connected with the flights rather than the ship (try running a mock booking on the thomson website for a fly cruise and then for cruise only) .

You're correct - it seems to apply to the flight aspect as I tried some mock bookings as cruise only and there is no surcharge. I should try the fthomsonfly flight only site and see if they charge £ 50 per person up to 30.4.09 !!

They dont even follow a set charge or logical pattern, ive seen some come up cheaper flying from northern airports as opposed to say luton/gatwick/stanstead (based on tenerife flights).

Thomson's web site cruise prices actually go up and down, almost daily, like stocks and shares! I notice 'Stansted' is not regarded as a London Airport by Thomson. Luton is. Does this web site undercut Thomson's on-line Cruise fares?

I cannot answer your last question - the best way is to ask them with a specific cruise you have in mind. As for Stansted - it is not as widely used by Thomson for the cruises I understand. As for web site prices they tend to only go up and down by about £ 10 as a rule unless the cruise is not selling or the departure date is getting near when te price can vary alot depending on availability. Then you should look and see what cabins are left as you can find that the supplements have gone up or that there are no cheaper cabins left so the basic price is dropped at the end but by time you have paid for a suite the cost is more but you have got a better cabin !! You will also notice that even though you can select certain types of cabins on the Thomson website page - from time to time it will come up with " select another " as that type is in fact sold out.
