Oceanwide fuel surcharge for Antarctic season 2011-12

Oceanwide Expeditions has advised agents that for the coming Antarctic season it will levy a surcharge of US $25 per passenger per night. 
 
Michel van Gessel, Managing Director, says:

"We have been prudent about levying these surcharges, and have therefore closely monitored the fuel prices and hoped for a considerable price decrease.  Unfortunately the prices remained the same during this Summer and yesterday a barrel Brent Crude Oil was still US $111 . It does not seem likely that for the coming Antarctic season, 2011-12 the fuel price will dip under US $80 again. For all new bookings, please be advised that the fuel surcharge will now be levied at time of booking."
