Disney Cruise Line was notably late to the game of adding fuel surcharges to bookings this year, and now it's one of the last major lines to get rid of the extra fees.
The two-ship line today announced it is eliminating fuel surcharges for all new bookings, effective immediately. The line said in a statement that the decision comes as a result of dropping fuel prices.
Most major lines including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Carnival, Princess, Holland America and Cunard announced plans to elimate fuel surcharges weeks ago as oil plunged below $60 a barrel from a summer high of $147.
Like the other lines, Disney also announced plans to refund fuel surcharges for upcoming cruises that already have been booked if oil remains below $70 a barrel.
