I'm with LHP on this one. It would be a contradiction of what Arison said. Of course situations change and they do have the disclaimer there for a reason. I sure hope they don't have to resort to this again. I almost have my cruise paid for, and this would cut into my beer and casino allowance. Oh well, I have enough FunPoints for a $200 OBC I can apply if needed.

I would bet that when they implemented the fuel charge last time they saw a corresponding drop in on board charges because many people felt as Dwayne did- "Well that is less beer and Casino allowance then" So they may have taken fuel costs into consideration in raising the cruise fares so that people don't fall into that mode.

In any case I hope it doesn't happen either. I would rather pay more for the cruise up front then to find out a little bit before my cruise that it is going to cost me $200 more than I expected...

Ain't that right. Especially for those of us that have to budget expenses on a cruise. I would rather pay a higher cruise rate and have it included in the price. Then I could get refunds or OBC's as a bonus if the rate dropped.

Surely corporate understands that the majority of us are on budgets. Yes, there are many that aren't, but I'll wager that there are more of us on budgets than those that can cast their fate to the wind.
