This is an open letter to all cruise lines: In the fall of 2007 all cruiselines decided it was time to add additional costs to all cruisers in the form of a fuel surcharge. This was meant to offset the price of crude oil which at the time was hovering around $80 a barrel. In recent months we've seen massive housing failures caused by consumer overspending and corporate greed. We've seen loss in jobs, drastic pull backs in the form of consumer spending and consumer sentiment at historic lows. We have also seen oil drop by almost $100 a barrel to prices in the $55 range. We the undersigned feel its time for all cruiselines to do the right thing. Show some leadership and concern for your customer. Drop the fuel surcharge without the strings attached. The price of oil is at a price low enough that the continued collection of this additional tax is seen by many as greed at the corporate level. This economy is a long way from recovery. So to Carnival, RCI and others we say - show your leadership, compassion and concern. Stop squeezing the pennies and invest in your own future.
