With news of increased fuel surcharges for cruise passengers rolling in, our headline could almost be, "As The Barrel Turns." It's time for an announcement from NCL, which is even pricier than the earlier one from Carnival Corp.
As oil prices have continued to rise since NCL's earlier announcement of a fuel supplement, the company announced today an increase to its current fuel supplement. The new fuel supplement will be $11 per person per day for the first and second guests in a stateroom and $5 per person per day for any additional guests in the same stateroom, based on the guidelines below.
Individual reservations: The increased fuel supplement applies only to new individual reservations made on or after June 20, 2008.
Group reservations: The increased fuel supplement applies to any group reservation booked on or after June 20, 2008. The increased fuel supplement will also apply to group space held prior to June 20, 2008 without specific names and full confirming deposit by June 19, 2008.
