I believe most of the cruise lines buy fuel futures and lock in pricing for a long period of time. If this gas price thing last more than six Months I could see fuel surcharges in the future. The economy is not that great, and I am sure cruise lines don't want to scare off customer. If fuel pricing starts to impact profits then surcharges will start. Needless to say I could be wrong, and they start tomorrow but I would be surprised. Mike
