Crystal Adds Fuel Surcharge

Effective July 17, Crystal Cruises will increase its existing fuel surcharge from $4 (as it is now) to $5 for all new 2007 bookings, effective July 17. Any 2007 bookings already made by agents and paid by the customer prior to July 17 will be protected, without the fuel surcharge. Several other cruise lines, including Regent Seven Seas, have had surcharges over the past year to help make up for some of the soaring fuel rates.
