Star Clippers Joins Fuel Surcharge Fleet

Star Clippers, the small line of tall ships, has instituted an $8 fuel surcharge per person per day effective for all new bookings starting December 17. The maximum charge that can be levied per person is $100. The surcharge will assessed though April 2009. "After discussing the situation of increased fuel costs with our tour operators and travel agent partners, we have concluded the fairest and least disruptive method of assessing the surcharge would be only on new reservations made on or after December 17," said Jack Chatham, Star Clippers' vice president of marketing and sales for North and Latin America. While Star Clippers' ships operate primarily under sail, they do require fuel to run generators for electricity and onboard climate control. Visit www.starclippers.com. (DE)
