I flew back from Acapulco some years ago (on Princess) and had a change of aircraft in Los Angeles. Other UK bound passengers went via other US gateways. A direct flight shouldn't take 17 hours so I guess you will be stopping off somewhere en route. It's not really a major hub for international flights so unless you go on a P&O chartered flight a stop off is almost certain. Even then, they tend to use smaller aircraft so a refuel stop is quite likely, at which point you get off and stretch your legs. Have a look on www.expedia.co.uk to get an idea of who flies where and approx flight times. Hope you aren't going loco by the time you get to Acapulco!! I'm sure you will have a great time.

Refer to my responce to a question posted by Mr Keith Barley on March 26th 2008. I think this will answer your question. With regards to the flight time, it does take about seventeen hours to get there I know because we have done it. Trouble is, the planes have a refuelling stop on the way in Cuba or Dominican Republic, before continuing to Acapulco.

We have just returned from a panama canal cruise just over a week ago. we also flew to acapulco which took 13 hours plus a one hour stop over at dominican republic. it didnt feel like thirteen hours as most of the time they are coming round with meals or complimentery drinks. there is also plenty to watch on the tv and if you are lucky you may get a couple of hours sleep. but we were suprised how fast it went. unfortunatly you dont get a lot of leg room on the flight we were on which was thomas cook. dont let it worry you too much as i'm sure you will have a lovely holida.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
