Paul Gauguin Stokes Up Fares ...

Oh, Oh, South Pacific Gets Pricier: Hotels employed surcharges to offset higher power costs in the '80s, and some cruise lines have done it of late on fuel. Now comes Regent Seven Seas Cruises (formerly Radisson), with a "Dear ..." e-mail communique under the heading of "Important Information Regarding Paul Gauguin 2007 Pricing." It goes on: "As you are no doubt aware, the price of fuel has increased dramatically over the past few months. These increases have been particularly acute in remote areas of the world such as the South Pacific, and are having an obvious adverse effect on our operating costs." Regent then cuts to the chase: "... we have decided that rather than implementing a fuel surcharge with periodic changes (as we have done in 2006), we have factored the additional fuel costs into our revised cruise fares for 2007. Effective July 1, 2006, all 2007 cruise fares on Paul Gauguin will increase by $100 per person, and will not be subject to fuel surcharges throughout the year." There's more: "... Effective July 1, 2006, all 2007 air/sea programs on Paul Gauguin ... will increase by $200 per person. This takes into account all existing airfare increases and air fuel surcharges as of today." Regent warns further price hikes from airlines will be passed on. Now, for good news: "Any bookings for 2007 that are booked and deposited by June 30, 2006, will be protected at the current published rates." For details, call (866) 213-4800.
