Carnival Corporation announced fuel surcharge increases for Holland America Line.

For bookings made on or after April 21, the daily fuel surcharge for the first and second passengers in a cabin will increase from $5 to $7 per person. This charge is not to exceed $98 per person per voyage.

Also, they are starting to charge third, fourth, and fifth passengers in the cabin at the rate of $2 per person, per day, not to exceed $28 per person per voyage.

Bookings made between November 7, 2007 and April 20, 2008 will retain the original $5 fuel surcharge for the first and second passengers.

This applies to all of the cruise lines under the Carnival umbrella.

Thank you, Sandy. I'm glad there's a window for booking before the increase is implemented. We ended up saving close to $100 on the summer 2009 booking we made a couple of weeks ago - a nice gift for booking early.

I wonder how they handle back-to-backs. The cruise we're taking next summer is one segment of a 35-night cruise.

I suspect back-to-back cruises are considered two separate voyages, and will be charged per day with the "per voyage" ceiling in place.

The whole 35 night cruise is also considered one voyage.
