It will be fine. Probably a 767 with two aisles and a 2 - 3 - 2 seat configuration. If this flight was included in the cruise price then it is probably chartered by your cruise line. When we went with P&O last Xmas we had an on board 'pamper kit' (inflatable neck cushion, hand cream etc) and free drinks - alcoholic and soft. It is usually an 8 hour flight and by the time you have watched the movies and eaten your meal you will be strapping in for landing. Enjoy. It's part of your holiday.

You should be on a 757 but which version dont know, seat pitch they claim for long haul flights should now be 33 inches but they are not very wide as they often use a 3+3+3 seating with some 2 +3+2 towards the rear,and we got free drinks when using this service with P&O this March also free head phones and comfort pack hope it is still the same as we are using them in Nov returning from Barbados .

We were on Sea Princess last October and flew with Thomas Cook. Never again. Not only was the seat pitch very short the seats are extremely narrow, it was so bad you couldn't even open a newspaper propoerly. I am only 5 foot tall but even I felt very squashed. Many people were complaining about it. I think you will find similar remarks elsewhere on the forum. It was so bad that we wouldn't go on a Princess cruise if they are using Thomas Cook. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, but certainly not the flight - even the flight attendents told us that there are always loads of complaints when these planes are used for long flights.

Why not book cruise only & choose your own airline if T.C. are unsatifactory?

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...

Ive had a great time!...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...
