NCL Increases Fuel Supplement
Norwegian Cruise Line will increase its fuel supplement, effective for bookings made on or after May 1. Citing ever-increasing oil prices, the line upped its surcharge to $9 per person per day for the first and second passengers in a cabin and $4 per person per day for additional passengers in the same cabin.

Currently, NCL charges $7 per day for the first two passengers and $3 per day for additional passengers. These fees will still be in effect for all bookings made during the month of April.

This increase comes on the heels of a similar increase by Carnival Cruise Lines, which will also raised its fuel surcharge by $2 for the first two passengers in a cabin. That price increase will go into effect next week on April 21.

Last fall, Regent Seven Seas Cruises' announcement of new fuel surcharges started a snowball effect, which ended with most North American lines levying fees on passengers to cover rising oil costs. It's not clear whether this new round of increases will have additional lines jumping on the higher surcharge bandwagon. We'll keep you posted on any future price changes.
