Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines have agreed to reimburse passengers for fuel surcharges that were not adequately disclosed. The settlement affects 300,000 bookings and will return $21 million to people nationwide who made trip deposits as of November 15, 2007. The world’s top two cruise operators announced in November they would start billing passengers $5 per person, per day to offset rising fuel prices for voyages beginning on February 1st. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum received more than 300 complaints about the fuel surcharge, which other cruise operators also added. Incidentally, Carnival’s Holiday cruise ship sails out of Mobile, Alabama.
