Applicable for travel from 06 June 2022

Dear Guests,

Blue Lagoon Cruises is writing to advise our valued guests that the retail price of diesel fuel in Fiji as of the 1st of October 2022 remains 60% higher than compared to when our current rates were set and issued mid-last year. On the basis that the retail price of fuel remains significantly higher than anticipated the fuel surcharge first implemented in July 2022 remains in place throughout October 2022 and will continue to be applied at FJ$15.00 per person per cabin night.

The fuel surcharge will be charged to guests’ cabins to pay onboard at the conclusion of their cruise, along with other incidentals or items enjoyed during the cruise.

We’d like to thank our guests, for their understanding of our need to recover a percentage of these unprecedented fuel costs. We also ask that Terms & Conditions are noted which are as follows: 

While we try our utmost not to increase our prices, this is sometimes outside our control. On that basis, we reserve the right to amend our prices although amendments should occur only in the instance of increases in our costs to deliver the cruise such as but not limited to, fuel costs, government taxes and charges, exchange rate fluctuations, and ground costs beyond the control of Blue Lagoon Cruises and which are deemed material to operations.”

For those guests that aren’t aware, the retail price of fuel in Fiji is set by the Fijian Competition & Consumer Commission (FCCC) and is only amended on the first day of each month. The fuel price set each month 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. We assure guests that Blue Lagoon Cruises remains committed to reviewing the fuel surcharge each month and will do so again on the 31st of October 2022 once the retail price of fuel to take effect as of the 1st of November 2022 has been announced.

Vinaka,
Blue Lagoon Cruises
