Thanks to pressure from Florida's Attorney General's office, Carnival Corp. (owner of Carnival Cruises, Holland America, and Princess Cruises) will refund supplemental fuel charges for bookings made before Nov. 7 last year for trips starting Feb. 1, 2008. The fees were $5 per person per day, and the attorney general said that the fees were not properly disclosed at the time of that reservations were made, according to the Associated Press.

Erik Torkells first blogged about this last November: "Adding fees after you've paid?!"

He also complained about the fees on Fox Business, as noted earlier.
