Royal Caribbean Cruises
has become the latest company to cut its fuel supplements.
The company has made the decision to abolish surcharges for cruises booked on or after November 10th 2008, for all cruises departing on or after January 1st 2010.
In addition, charges will no longer apply to Celebrity Cruises
and Azamara Cruises bookings.
In a statement, Royal Caribbean Cruises said the decision had been made as a result of the decline in fuel prices.
"The company has also established specific guidelines that will determine whether fuel supplement refunds will be provided for sailings that begin in 2009 and later, which were booked prior to November 10th, 2008, if fuel prices remain below a specific price threshold," the statement read.
Some of the vessels operated by the company include the Voyager of the Seas
, Navigator of the Seas
and the Mariner of the Seas.
Royal Caribbean's newest ship, the Oasis of the Seas
, is due to launch late next year.
