Fuel Surcharge Fuel Surcharge applicable for travel from 06 June 2022
Updated and re-issued for the period of January 2023:
The retail price of diesel fuel in Fiji as of the 1st of January 2023 remains 49% higher than compared to when our current rates were set and issued over a year ago. As a result of these continuing high fuel prices, selected South Sea Cruises services and products remain subject to the fuel surcharges stated below as of the 1st of January 2023:
- Resort Connections customers travelling to all Mamanuca Island Resorts - $20 per adult / $10 per child (5-15 years) for each one-way sector.
- Resort Connections customers travelling to all Yasawa Island Resorts (including Vomo) - $25 per adult / $15 per child (5-15 years) for each one-way sector.
- Awesome Adventures Fiji Packages or Pass customers - $25 per adult.
Applicable customers travelling with us from Port Denarau will be asked to pay the fuel surcharge for all future sectors booked whilst at check-in. Customers who are only travelling with South Sea Cruises on an inbound sector from their island resort will be asked to pay the fuel surcharge upon boarding our vessels and before they return to Port Denarau. Customers can choose to either pay the fuel surcharge via cash, international debit card, or with a credit card, noting that international cards do attract an admin fee of between 2.5% - 3%.
In implementing the fuel surcharge, we’d like to thank our customers for their understanding of our need to recover a percentage of these increased fuel costs. We also ask that our Terms & Conditions are noted as follows “South Sea Cruises reserves the right to alter prices, apply a fuel surcharge, cancel departures, arrange alternative transport, and vary itineraries and services if necessary.”
For those customers that aren’t aware, the retail price of fuel in Fiji is set by the Fijian Competition & Consumer Commission (FCCC) and is amended on the first day of each month. The price set is based on a range of factors globally but most noticeably by movement in the Means of Platts Singapore (MOPS) market, international freight rates and foreign exchange rates. South Sea Cruises remains committed to reviewing the fuel surcharge each month and will do so again on the 31st of January 2023 once the retail price of fuel to take effect as of the 1st of February 2023 is announced.
