Norwegian Cruise Lines
(NCL) has announced plans to drop its fuel supplement charge with immediate effect.
The decision has been made in light of the recent drop in oil prices, although NCL said it would continue to monitor the global situation carefully and decide in the future whether it is necessary to reinstate the charge.
Fuel supplement cuts will apply immediately to all voyages departing in 2009 and those who are entitled will be refunded in the form of on-board credit, Cruise Industry News reports.
"Global fuel prices have dropped to a level where we can now suspend the fuel supplement, making an NCL Freestyle Cruising vacation an even greater value," said Andy Stuart, NCL's executive vice president, global sales and passenger services.
One of the youngest cruise lines in the industry, NCL currently operates a fleet of 11 modern ships.
