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.

By Tom Harding

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
