A cruise line owned and operated by Carnival Corporation has announced that they will be eliminating daily service charges next year.
P&O Cruises has announced that beginning in May 2019, there will no longer be a daily service charge charged to passengers who sail on one of their cruise ships.
The cruise line posted the following message on their website notifying their cruisers of this change:
“We take huge pride in giving you a holiday that’s truly memorable and our team on board is committed to providing exceptional service. From May 2019 (cruises A911, B912, E911/A, J903, N910, R907, X907 and all thereafter), the discretionary daily Service Charge on board will be removed so you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of. Changes like this do take a little bit of time to put in place, and so for holidays which depart before May, a discretionary daily Service Charge amount of £7 will continue to be added for guests aged 12 and over.”
P&O Cruises is a British cruise line owned by Carnival Corporation. The cruise line has a fleet of seven cruise ships and represents nearly 2.5% of all cruises worldwide.
The cruise line has their two biggest cruise ships yet being added to their fleet in 2020 and 2022. These 183,900 gross ton cruise ships will be powered by LNG and will be the largest cruise ships ever built for the UK cruise market.
Mark my words. They will jack up prices to make up the difference and the crew will suffer. My gut tells me this is a trial balloon to see if the public likes, it, then it will roll out to other Carnival ships. Mark. My. Words.
