Kudos to Royal Caribbean

Oct 29, 2008


In a move that shows that the travel industry has a heart Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines said it’s ending fuel surcharges for now for certain cruises because the global price of oil has come down and stabilized.
For such a move they deserve to have a free publicity logo placed here in this AJ Blog.
(Funny, though, how the airlines keep adding to their fuel surcharges/airport security fee/taxes/penny-for-your-thoughts/dollar-for-a-coke).
After Nov. 10, the cruise line will not charge the fees for new bookings on the Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Cruises for departures worldwide on or after Jan. 1, 2010. Royal Caribbean also said refunds of fuel charges for bookings made before Nov. 10 for sailings in 2009 and beyond will be determined quarterly.
Royal Caribbean said it could reinstate fuel surcharges if oil prices trend up.
Royal Caribbean announced a fuel surcharge in November for sailings on and after Feb. 1, 2008. It has since revised its fuel fees twice.
Currently, Royal Caribbean charge $10 per person daily for the first two guests in a stateroom, capped at $140 per person for each cruise. Additional guests pay $5 per person daily with a maximum of $70 per person for each cruise.
Kudos again to Royal Caribbean. This move shows they actually care about their customers.
USAirways….take a lesson!
