Hi I'm considering buying the deal for me and my husband. At the time of the departure we will have been married just over a year. My passport still has my maiden name on it though and I'm not sure I could get it changed and sent to me before the cruise date.

Q:

What does it mean when it says "MSC has the right to charge passenger with any fuel surcharges" is that mean that MSC will charge us more other than $349 plus $79 tax? Is the alcohol included cause most cruises does not include alcohol? Thanks Cris

Cris H.  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

Fuel surcharge provision is a hedge against a dramatic spike in the price of oil, a surcharge that has not been implemented in many years. The $349 plus government taxes and fees is a per person rate based on double occupancy in a stateroom which does not include alcohol as part of the rate.
