It is the usual practice on most cruise ships for luggage (other than hand luggage) to be put outside your stateroom for collection the evening before you disembark, so even if you collect it from the quay immediately on disembarkation it will still have been out of your possession overnight.

Not saying it will but you may find the practice differs in Beijing. It did some years ago when I was there. .... Neil.

Why not call Princess or your agent for an answer?

I have done both. Travel agent tried 4 times, answer was always "waiting for LA to reply. Eventually on Thursday Travel agent rang to say no problem they had been told eventually that I could have my luggage during the Hotel stay. Friday this changed again to "no I cannot take my luggage". They have communicated through my TA. Letter and phone call remain un-answered. The office at Southampton refer all questions to LA, I think by pigeon post. This is our 12th cruise in the past decade but only the second with Princess, and the first left a lot to be desired. RCI and Celebrity seem better organised.

Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards.

So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
