With the price of gas these days I am wondering if they are still charging a daily surcharge??

I don't think they ever did. It's an option in their contract to impose it, but haven't. It would impact their sales too much, so most lines cut back some things to save money and keep their prices stable.

It did happen for a while; I remember paying it on one cruise. It was so very unpopular that bookings suffered, though, and I think that now all of the lines are very hesitant to do it again. October 14th, 2012 09:30 PM

Several cruise lines added them for a while, but then did away with them. Right now, there are only two that implemented them last year - Cunard was one - I can't remember the other one. But none of the mass-market cruise lines currently have a fuel supplement.

Of course, with oil prices the way they are, they all reserve the right to implement them at any time, so who knows what will happen next year.

In 1974 the Home lines Oceanic imposed a $40? per cabin fuel charge for a Bahamas cruise out of NY. The Attorney General of NY sued Homelines and everyone ended up with a future credit for a cruise to be used w/i the next 2? years. I never used my credit. . . '

Are you coming back to the Port Canaveral thread?
