Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by Pierotti (02 Dec 07 21:09)

Sorry but I think you will have to put this question to a cruise agent to get the full answer. Yes, it is possible, you would normally arrange with the agent with whom you made your booking or intend to book to make out your flights from Glasgow to New York two days early and then from Southampton to Glasgow. Your agent can arrange for a hotel in NY as part of the deal or you can arrange your own hotel in which case you will probably have to arrange your own transit But primarily talk to your agent and if the Victoria Travel or (www.CRUISE.co.uk) are unsuitable then try Scotia Travel in Glasgow who specialise in flights from your city Hope that helps....Nei.

Hi there, I also live in Glasgow and my family and I have booked passage on the eastbound trip on the QM2. I am flying to Newark with Continental on a direct flight from Glasgow. I am staying for 7 days in New Jersey prior to the sailing, I have made my own arangements regarding my hotel in New Jersey. I booked through Barrhead Travel who can offer accommodation in the states prior to your sailing. Hope this helps.

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
