Yesssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

....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.

Okay, talk to me like I'm a child....I booked an October 08 cruise in March. Am I getting OBC? Course, as I recall, it's only like $20 but that's several fruity drinks!

Refunds will only be issued to bookings made as of Nov. 6, 2007. According to the settlement, those who qualify will receive a refund by check, credit card reimbursement or On-board Credit. So I guess it depends how you paid for the cruise.

I am personally very happy. I should get it as an OBC as I'm already paid in full. I only get $35, but still that amounts to at least 5 foo-foo drinks.
