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.

When is the best time to book a cruise?

By Collette Apak

It’s a question that I am asked many times.Last week I spoke to a customer who booked a cruise way back last Summer with Royal Caribbean to travel this year. They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...
