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.

Sex, drugs and ports of call. ...

By Dean Michaelides

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner. Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
