....Under the agreement, Miami-based Carnival, the world's largest cruise operator, can continue to levy its fuel surcharge -- a $5 per day fee, up to $70 per passenger or $140 per cabin -- going forward. But the company must clearly disclose the fee to customers before they buy a trip and display the amount "directly above, beneath or next to the cruise-fare price.".......will refund $40 million to cruise passengers who were forced to pay extra fuel charges even after they had booked their trips, part of a deal the company will announce this evening to settle an investigation by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum.
The refunds will cover an estimated 1.1 million bookings.
When my days on a cruise ship (Carnival 60, Celebrity 14, Royal Caribbean 3) exceed my days submerged in the Atlantic & Arctic (423), I win.
