NCL to Institute Fuel Supplement

NCL Corporation announced today that it will begin assessing guests a fuel supplement in response to record high fuel prices.  Effective on all new NCL and NCL America bookings made on or after December 1, 2007, the fuel supplement will be $7 per person per day for the first and second guests in a stateroom and $3 per person per day for any additional guests in the same stateroom.

“With oil prices skyrocketing, the fuel supplement is a necessary step for us,” said Colin Veitch, NCL’s president and CEO.

Prior to finalizing the details of the fuel supplement, the company sought input from members of its President’s Club, those travel partners that do the largest volume of business with NCL.

“It was helpful to hear feedback from our travel partners.  We value their opinions and took their input into consideration when setting the parameters for this supplement.  Implementing it on new bookings only will enable travel partners to continue to focus on selling new customers on an NCL cruise versus servicing existing bookings,” Veitch added.  “Decisions like this are often difficult and, in this case, we hope we have found the right balance for NCL and our valued travel partners, as well as our guests.”

NCL Corporation Ltd. is the holding company for various subsidiary companies involved in owning and operating the ships of Norwegian Cruise Line, NCL America and Orient Lines.
