Hi Wise2U,

I agree with you on a lot of your message, especially the addon surcharge after a person had paid they full amount. I just came off the NCL Pearl and had booked, and paid before they added the surcharge and I didn't have to pay it..The one sticking point is when you scorned the rebuttle for misspelling "taxes"....In your first posting you had at least 6 misspelled words...Happy cruising to you when you decide to come back to it...

Wise2u,
My many pardons for hitting the "s" key, instead of the "x" key. If you read my post you would have seen I said not "all" companies hedge fuel. I didn't say they don't hedge. I also said the base price of a cruise is low before the add ons. All segments of the travel industry advertise the base price and then add on the taxes. You think prices have been high for several years, I don't. So we have different perceptions on value. Cruises are very affordable even in non-hurricane time. And for your information cruise lines are building ships with more balconies because that is what is in demand.

As for why I edited your post, you know why, and it was one sentence at the end of your post.

As for your personal attack on me, I must have hit your nerves.

FYI: I saw the refund on our account with RCCL a few weeks ago. We used our RCL Visa to pay for this cruise & the fuel charge was refunded to the credit card. It is on the statement I just received...

I am surprised the other lines haven't fallen in line with RCCL. Apparently the backlash isn't as profound as some have made it out to be.

Carnival has stated that it doesn't need to follow the same policy, because its explanation of the fuel surcharges was more clear in their brochure than was RCI's.

Here is an article discussing Carnival's position on this matter. I'd have to say that the other shoe hasn't dropped yet with regard to the Florida Attorney General's office, and more actions will be forthcoming.

Excuse me, I have to run out and get another box of tissues; Carnival is breaking my heart.

So let me see if I've got this: I've paid an additional $210 on two cruises I had booked and paid for before they announced the fuel supplement; but because I understood the announcement, I'm not entitled to a rebate. Makes sense to me.
