Costa is the industry's second big-ship cruise line to levy fuel surcharges, following Malaysia-based Star Cruises. Through at least November, passengers will pay 10 euros for a week-long cruise and 15 euros for longer voyages. The surcharge is applicable on all ships in the fleet.
But there's a caveat: Only European-based passengers will pay the surcharge. A spokeswoman at Costa tells Cruise Critic that because of different booking conditions in the U.K. and in the U.S., travelers from those countries are excluded from the surcharge.
