FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, November 6, 2007 – Due to the continued rise of fuel costs around that world – to a degree that could not have been anticipated when pricing was set by the line – Regent Seven Seas Cruises will implement a cruise fuel surcharge of $7.50 per person per day for all 2008 bookings that are not paid in full by December 1, 2007. Original pricing for 2008 cruises allowed for an increase in fuel prices, but not nearly to the extent of current levels. The new surcharge will help offset some of the difference.
Regent Seven Seas will continue to monitor the fuel price situation, and will make adjustments to these fuel surcharges as required.
Any questions or concerns will be handled by the line’s reservations line: (800) 285-1835.
