It is highly unlikely they will add the fuel surcharge. They know it bit them in the butt last time. However there are many other ways they are actually adding it without anyone knowing it. They have raised the prices on a lot of the extra charges, the NCF's have gone up (that part doesn't effect the cruisers only the TA's).
With the new/old economic woes there would be cancellations galore if they added it again at this time. It would/could be the straw that breaks the camels back at this point for a lot of people so their preference is to hide it.
