It depends more on the airline your travelling with and the tickets youve bought. You might be Economy, Premium or Business all will have different allowances..Check your tickets and T&Cs, it will tell you there.

Usually 20kg per person + hand baggage but this can vary depending on which airline is used. Your tickets will confirm the precise allowance but it wouldn't be less than 20kg. Have a look at the Island Cruise web site and check Before You Board. You don't need to take formal evening wear which will help with the weight restrictions. Have a nice cruise.

Your allowance on the ship is more than most people would contemplate taking so the main restriction is the airline with whom you fly. Scheduled airlines to the USA and the Caribbean allow far more than chartered airlines so find out who you are flying with and then look at their web site and you will know for certain. .........Neil.

We have just retuned from a 2 weeker on P&O ventura(caribean) and were allowed 23kg outward and 25 kg return for some reason- saw island star in Barbados. Have a nice time- .

I've had my tickets for The Island Star re issued as they made a mistake re baggage allowance.It's 20kg each definitely.They had 25kg originally which was wrong.

Travelled to Palma with Thomsons with a 20k baggage allowance and had to pay excess last month but on way back from Rio with Air France we were allowed 40k's, It depends with the airline so ring them and ask as we did.
