’s® New Fuel Surcharge Guarantee™ Allows Cruise Passengers to Sail Worry-Free of Extra Charges

The company announced a new promotion where they will cover potential fuel surcharge reinstatements for cruisers booked during the month of September.

Charlotte, NC, September 04, 2009 --( To ensure their cruise travelers are not slapped with a hefty fuel-surcharge bill when they get to the cruise dock, has announced a bold promotion where they will cover the charges for you if the cruise lines reinstate their fuel charges.’s new Fuel Surcharge Guarantee promotion runs throughout the month of September and applies to ocean view and higher category staterooms purchased by September 30, 2009.

“The last thing you want to worry about after you’ve budgeted for your vacation and paid your cruise fare is the possibility of the cruise lines reinstating their fuel surcharges and having to pay up to $140 per person or more at the pier before you can go onboard,” explained Jared Smith, general manager of “Many travelers don’t realize that cruise lines have reserved the right to reinstate their substantial fuel surcharges introduced last year if oil surpasses the $65 mark per barrel for a set period of time, and oil prices have been hovering close to those parameters recently hitting $69. The only way to be certain that you won’t be responsible for additional fuel surcharges is to book your cruise with, or transfer the booking to if you’ve already made your reservation with another company. ”

Smith adds that these fuel charges can be a significant added expense to any cruiser, let alone a family of four who may already be on a tight vacation budget and could now possibly owe hundreds of dollars in additional fees for their trip. “We are offering this special complimentary insurance this month as a way to take the worry of these potential increased costs off of our clients’ shoulders, minds and wallets so they can instead worry about what show they are going to catch at the ship’s theatre or what exciting shore excursion they are going to pick,” said Smith.

The top cruise specials currently available through the large internet cruise retailer include a four night cruise on the Carnival Imagination to Key West and Cozumel for $179 per person, a three night Pacific coastal cruise from Vancouver to Los Angeles on the Coral Princess from $175, and a seven night luxury cruise on the Holland America Oosterdam to Mazatlan, Puerta Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas for only $441 per person. As always, doesn’t charge any booking or cancellation fees, and now with their Fuel Surcharge Guarantee, passengers won’t have to worry about their deals getting ruined by paying extra fuel surcharges tacked on by the cruise lines.
