Cruise lines up fuel surcharges

Carnival Corporation, which owns Carnival, Costa, Cunard, Holland America, Princess and Seabourne has raised the fuel surcharge from $5 per day per person to $7 per day per person, not to exceed $70-$98 per cruise (with qualifications).

Azamara, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean have increased the charges to $8 per person per day, up to $112 per cruise.

And Norwegian Cruise Line is at $7 per person per day, with no maximum specified.

Some prices quoted included the fuel surcharge. And some do not. Be sure to specifically ask your travel agent about fuel surcharges so you don't end up with any unpleasant surprises.
