Walker - Answered a Question by roberts (23 Nov 08 12:00)

I was summoned to the search room and ordered to open my suitcase that contained a bottle of champagne. I refused to do so and was told that it would be forced and someone was called for to do so. I responded that I would sue for criminal damage. I waited for some half hour but noone came. I then said that I was being detained against my will and would sue for wrongful detention. The officer responded 'F*** off and take your bag with you. That was three years ago and I've since done eighteen cruises - none with NCL.

The first clue is that your luggage is not delivered and you get a phone call to go to the 'aughtly room'. All impounded luggage is kept there, and you open it in front of them. If they find booze they will take it, and keep it safe for you and return it on the last night. I cannot see the point of smuggling - prices are in US$ which at the moment is so cheapr for us. What is the point of trying to save a few £ (after you have spent thousands on the holiday) by taking on a bottle of £10 vodka which you then drink out of a toothmug, with no ice or lemon. Far better to go to a bar and order one. Just MHO.

The way suitcases are thrown around by airport staff, I wouldn't put alcohol in mine. Also alcohol is generally cheaper abroad anyway.

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...
