Neil Down - Answered a Question by Mathieson (19 Jul 08 15:41)

The advice given, I think, is good but I haven't used this cruise line so I can't add to it except to say make sure that your jewellery and valuables, ship’s documentation and any medication is taken with you in your carry-on luggage. There are occasions when luggage is delivered straight to your cabin but this depends so much on the security system at whichever airport is used and sometimes whether the flight is a charter flight or not so your agent may be saying things in good faith or just mistaken. regards Neil.

Yes once you land you need to collect your luggage and take it to the transport waiting to take you to your ship. You should be supplied with labels to identify your cabin so make sure they are attached. Depending on the arrangements your lugguage will normally be loaded into vans and yorselves into a coach and the next time you will see it is when it is delivered to your cabin. We usually have a small case packed with a few items for that evening in case there is a delay in the luggage being delivered. It hasn't happened for a while but one year it was 5 hours before we saw our cases, hopefully you won't experience that problem.

Thanks for the info. It appears I was misled by the tour operator. That's a shame. I thought that waving goodbye to my luggage in the departure airport was a great idea! I'll take a couple of bits and pieces in hand luggage just in case anything gets delayed...

My Dream Cruise

By Edward Griffiths

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship. Here is that itinerary:Southampton, United KingdomAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaNew York, United StatesAt SeaAt Sea Christmas...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
