Default Royal Carribean: Cruise Operator Down of Dollar

Royal Carribean: Cruise Operator Down of Dollar
Royal Carribbean Cruises, Ltd. cut its 2015 outlook and issud second -quarter guidance wll below expectations as the cruise ship company was hit by impacts from a strong US dollar and higher fuel prices."
Wall Street Journal 4212015

Higher fuel prices where are they buying their fuel and does this mean that fuel price adjustments on tickets? What else does this mean for the Royal Carribean cruiser. We shall see.

Interesting about the fuel....where are they getting it from .
Royal's prices are too high already for their product so adding a fuel surcharge when fuel prices are so low would drive people over the top

No one ha said that RCL or any other cruiseline is going to add fuel surcharges.
We don't need fabricated rumors and there is no need to create problems where they don't exist.

This id not the open thread.

I personally am a Happy Royal cruiser an plan to continue to be. If other cruise lines charge less for their product that's OK. They are the ones who know what they are worth.

Someone asked that question this week while onboard Anthem of the Seas, and as of now, they have no plans to add a fuel charge. Anything can happen, so time will tell...
