No fortunately. It is your responsibility to catch the ship up!!! Make sure you do NOT miss the 'boat'.

Book the flight for the day before OR get your travel agent to book as part of deal. You would then be covered by ATOL rules (package). Never book the flight for the same day. Remember all those episodes of "AIRPORT", flights are often delayed.

As i see it you have 3 options 1 accept that you have lost your cruise and go back home / 2 fly out to the ships next port of call in your case i believe is Valletta (Malta) / 3 have a holiday in barcelona you could avoid all this if you flew out the day before your cruise and stayed the night in barcelona.

Never happened to me because when it is that important I always use scheduled airlines. Cheapy cheap airlines cannot be relied upon and are never as cheap as they claim. .... Neil.

I answered that on your previous question. Is there an alternative airline/flight that day? Plan for the ships next port of call. Times of flights trains etc. Have all that info with you. Your obviously concerned, so why not think about changing your flight to a day earlier?

Last three times I cruised, ships did not depart on time due to flights being delayed, but these flights were fly/cruise so ships had to wait. If you do cruise only it can be dodgy. Not only that, if any more airlines go bust and bookies are taking bets on at least half a dozen, make sure you pay by credit card.

You don't say what time your ship sails but normally this is late afternoon early evening so chill out and relax. Your flight would have to be seriously delayed to miss the sailing. At worst the staff at Barcelona would be able to help organise a forwarding flight to next port of call.My friends missed flight to Palma ( car broke down) but managed to embark ship in Malta but had to pay for flight and overnight stay in Malta.Still had great cruise.

Hi Binder, Did you make it to cruise OK ? I've been asking a similar question to yours. Our Airmalta flight lands at Gatwick 11am (hopefully no delays). Booked NCL transfer to dover. ship sails at 4pm. (booked our own flights). all is booked and paid for. can't change flight dates. hope all goes well.
