Editor’s Note – Regardless of when you booked your Science at Sea cruise with Carnival, you get to take advantage of these price reductions. As the price goes down so does your final payment!
I just received notice from Carnival Corporation that they are suspending the fuel supplement for cruises departing on or after December 17, 2008 (this includes Science at Sea!). All bookings for cruises departing after February 5, 2009 will be adjusted to remove the fuel supplement. This means that you can deduct $63.00 for the 1st and 2nd guest and $28.00 for 3rd and 4th guest in the cabin from your balance due.
Please note that Carnival reserves the right to re-instate the fuel supplement for all guests at up to $9.00 per person per day should the price of light sweet crude oil according to the NYMEX increase above $70.00 per barrel.
Please use this blog link to stay posted on these updates. It’s much easier to get information out to everyone all at once. If, however, you have specific questions about your trip, you’re always welcome to contact me directly at GMacDonald@colorado.aaa.com
Space is filling fast! To date, we have 65 people registered and confirmed with new inquires every day. There is a possibility that Carnival will put a cap or limit on the size of our group (I’m guess right at 100) since we are a private group with special excursions. If you know of anyone who is considering the trip, I would give them a nudge right now!
