Crystal imposes £4 fuel surcharge

Luxury line Crystal Cruises is adding a £4 surcharge on all 2008 cruise bookings due to escalating fuel prices.

The supplement applied on a per passenger, per day basis on all new bookings taken on or after December 3.

UK sales and marketing director Sophie Higgins said: “Escalating fuel costs continue to affect virtually everyone, and the impact on Crystal Cruises’ daily operations is no exception.

“We set our 2008 cruise fares in late 2006, yet the price of fuel rose 66-70% from February to November 2007.”
