If your flying Lufthansa, & by the sound of it you are, then it's more than likely.

Yes, there is no such thing as a direct flight from BHX to BCN. If you book your flights through the cruise company they can route you whichever way they want. It clearly states this in the T&CS. You are flying BHX -MUN and then on to BCN and on the way back you fly via FFT. Yes you change planes in both directions. One good reason why I never book flights with the cruise company .

A of N, You CAN book direct from BHX to BCN on BMI Baby, done it, bought the T shirt recently. Weekend flght times are good, with early departures & mid afternoon returns. Week days have early departures but only one return flight about 2230 hrs arriving BHX about 00.30 hrs next morning. These flights are still current throughout the year & like you, for these reasons, I never book flights through a cruise company. Regards Wilba.

Wilba - I stand corrected!! Being a Southerner the 'north' is mystery to me!!!! RCI tend to mainly use scheduled carriers - if they do use budget they must have sold out for that day. Anyway, the lesson learnt is do not buy flights through the cruise company! When is your next cruise???

No when your 'onward transit' your luggage is transfered on to the next flight, so grab a meal/drink or whatever & move on to your next departure lounge.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
