We flew with Thomas Cook in December to join the Sea Princess much improved from the flight we did with them last year at the same time, much more leg room. Have a great cruise.

Sounds promising, was this from Gatwick? Do you know if you can pre-book the seats at all? Thanks for your help .

You cannot pre book your seats as the whole plane is Princess cruise passengers and the seat you go out in is the one you come home in so my advice is to get to the airport early and book a good seat.

Whilst you can never know for certain just what you will by flying on you will probably be OK. Thomas Cook Airlines' long-haul aircraft is the A330 and these are being reconfigured to give you 33 inches of seat pitch which is quite generous for economy class. In addition you should have personal TVs to keep you occupied during the flight. What you might find is that the seat is a bit on the narrow side but this shouldn't be much of a problem as long as you are sitting next to someone you happen to be rather fond of! Booking seats is normally possible (at a price) but your flight might well be a specific cruise line charter. I suggest you have a word with whoever you booked the trip with. Have a nice time - I wish I was going!

Hi.. we are on the same cruise but flying out of Manchester with Thomas Cook. We'll have to get to the airport in plenty of time to make sure we get good seats! I know there are some flights where you check your bags in the night before.. shame we can't do that! Sheila.

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you? I think my first recollection was when I watched a film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about two characters that fate brings together in a hospital room and they discuss the things they want to do before they die.There are loads of thing that you can have on your list – it does necessarily have to be about holidays, but I think the majority of ...
