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.

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.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
