Cruise Line Refunds

March 11th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Anyone who has purchased a ticket on a cruise since November is likely entitled to receive some cash back. Two lines, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, have agreed to a 21 million dollar refund based on hidden fuel surcharges that were added on after customers booked their cruise. Attorney General Bill McCollum says more cruise lines are under scrutiny.

And what it boils down to is that there have been retroactive charges for fuel on these cruise lines without the proper notice, in the judgment of the Attorney Generals office, to the public before they did this. And so theyve agreed, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, to refund to all of those who were retroactively charged these extra fuel charges, that money.

Exact amounts are not available, but up to 3 hundred thousand cruise bookings may be entitled to either a refund, or a credit against a ticket if the cruise has not yet sailed. Customers should be contacted within the next month by Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, and if they are not, they should contact the Attorney Generals office.
