You identify your luggage at the airport take it to the nominated coach it is then taken to the ship. You then take your luggage off the coach to the ship (a short walk) and leave it at the registration point - your luggage is then taken to your cabin by one of the staff. There did seem to be a lot more handling of your own luggage on this particular cruise than other lines but it will be worth it, we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on Emerald in August this year - having cruised on several other cruise ships we can say that this was value for money and comparable to much more expensive cruises.

Yes, you do. We have flown to Corfu on two ocassions with Thomson's to join the Emerald and we had to collect our luggage on arrival to take it to the coach ourselves .

Once your luggage is on the coach, that's the last you see of it until it's delivered to your cabin.

Once you arrive at corfu. you collect yous luggage and then you are given a sticker with you cabin number. the next time you see your luggage after you have put on the transport is when it is put outside your cabin. this will be our fourth trip on the emerald .

Your luggage is taken direct from the plane to the ship, the next time you see it is outside your cabin door! Have a good cruise, that's what happens with P&O, and Royal Caribbean ships!

On the two occasions we have gone to corfu with Thomson - we collected our cases at the airport and took them to the coach waiting to take us to the port. Then at the port we collected our cases and took them into the port and left them there and then they were delivered to our cabin.

You collect your luggage from the carrocel your cases have a tag relating to your cabin number and then make your way to the transfer coach which will take you to your ship.then your luggage will be looked after while you check in and board ship. your luggage will then be placed outside your cabin usually with in an hour or so while you go and get yourself some food and drink.and settle in .

Went on this cruise a couple of years ago. On arrival from at the port your baggage is taken straight to the ship and delivered to your cabin. You don't have to lft a finger.From Jan.

We have done this cruise twice. Highly recommended. You take your cases to the coach outside the airport which takes you to the dock. When you go through the proceedures your cases are taken directly to the ship amd you do not see them until they are delivered to your cabin. The duty free shop on the port is very cheap and you can buy things before you board.

Dont panic your luggage will be placed on the coach going to the ship but be sure YOU see the luggage (which you should collect from the airport and take to the coach) being placed ON the coach once at the boat the porters will take your luggage and it will be put on the boat have a good trip you will love the Thomson boats.
