Question on the fuel surcharge - Does oil need to be over $70 for 30 days or can Carnival implement the surcharge anytime they want. Crusing in Feb 10 and want to know if I will be hit with another surcharge for oil like I did last year..

Do not sweat the small stuff. Carnival has already stated that given the current economy, they are not contemplating reinstating the fuel surcharge any time soon. The existing market is way too volatile for a lot of cruiselines and consumers.
It is wise to keep an eye on things (like the price of fuel futures and what the cruiselines are doing), but don't get too stressed out about it. If it happens it happens....If it does not then happy days.
