Not Again! Another Cruise Line Increases Fuel Supplement
First Carnival, then NCL. Now Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has announced plans to increase its fuel supplement. The new policy will apply to all three of the company's brands -- Azamara, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean.

Effective May 1, the new fuel supplement will be $8 per person, per day, for the first and second passengers in a cabin, and $3 per person, per day, for additional guests sharing the cabin. Surcharge payments will be capped at $112 per person, per cruise, for the first two passengers and $42 per person, per cruise, for additional passengers.

Currently, Royal Caribbean charges $5 per person for the first two passengers sharing a stateroom (with a max of $70 per person, per cruise). Additional passengers in the cabin do not pay a fuel surcharge. Royal Caribbean's new surcharges are not as steep as NCL's ($9 for first two passengers, $4 for others) but higher than Carnival's ($7 for first two, $2 for others) new fees.
