Disney Implements First Fuel Surcharge
Disney Cruise Line has finally surrendered to skyrocketing fuel costs. The cruise line -- which held out for months while the rest of the industry implemented, and in some cases further increased, fuel surcharges -- announced today it will now levy such supplements on all bookings made on or after May 28, 2008.

Disney's details are as follows: A fuel surcharge of $8 per person, per day, applies to the first and second guests in a stateroom and $3 per person, per day, applies to third, fourth and fifth guests. The surcharge may not exceed $112 per person, per sailing, for the first two passengers, and $42 per person, per sailing, for additional passengers.

The first round of cruise line fuel surcharges poured in toward the end of 2007. As the price of fuel has continued to rise since, many cruise lines have hiked prices even further in recent weeks. Unsurprisingly, a Disney spokeswoman tells us that implementing a surcharge became a necessary step due to market conditions.
