I think the fuel surcharge going away is wishful thinking. I think the cruiselines should just have adjusted the prices accordingly because now we have port charges that are extra, govt fees that are extra, a fuel supplement, what next?
I think much like they have in the European Union, all prices advertised (no matter if they are flights only, air packages, hotel accomodations, cruises and so on) should include everything, your "out the door" price, so to speak. But hey, who am I to argue with the marketing gurus/advertising lobby or the bunch of incompetent and ball-less politicians whose only interests are protecting their own seats, literally.
Just my 2 cents!
