Default RCL just dropped fuel supplement are the rest to follow?

What's the chances of the rest of the industry following suit and dropping the fuel supplement? And, if they do, will they discount folks already booked or give it as an OBC

Well that's promising.

I think if fuel costs remain stable for a great length of time, more in the industry will follow RCL.

For those already booked with a fuel surcharge included, let's just say it would be nice if they at least gave an OBC.

Time will tell if they make it retroactive....they just might pick a future date and say anything booked after that date won't have a fuel surcharge.

All bets are off if the price of fuel yo-yos.

Carnival was first and RCI followed, so I believe all of the others will also.

BTW: The price drops were corporation wide: I.E. All of their brands are dropping the fuel supplements if the per barrel cost of sweet crude remains at the levels defined in their definitions.

Take care,

how will this drop in fuel prices work? If you have made a deposit but no the final payment does that mean you will get the rebate?
