April 7 2008
Dear travel Partner,
Because of the continued rapid escalation of fuel prices, six of Carnival Corp. & plc's brands-Carnival cruise lines, Costa cruises, Cunard line, Holland America line, Princess cruises and the Yachts of Seabourn- will increase their current fuel supplement from $5 to $7 (USD) per person per day.
These brands will also implement a fuel supplement on third, fourth and fifth passengers of $2 per person per day.
The new fuel supplements will apply to all new bookings effective April 21, 2008.
The fuel supplement will not exceed $98 per person per voyage for the first and second guests and $28 per person per voyage for the third, fourth and fifth guests in a stateroom.
For bookings made from November 7 2007 to April 20, 2008 the original fuel supplement of $5 per person per day will apply.
We regret having to take this action, but feul price increases have continued and we now find it necessary to implement a modest increase in the supplement.
Please remember that all of your booking made on or before April 20 2008 will not be subjest to the supplement increase. Most importantly, we want to thank you for your business and support for all our brands.
Director of Marketing
