Would not have thought that there was any luggage allowance when cruising, It is the airlines that give you the restriction. What does any one else thin.

Assuming there is no flying involved you can take as much luggage as you wish. But remember that it all has to fit in your cabin!!! If you are flying to join your cruise I should speak to you agent or the cruise line direct as allowances do vary Warning do not exceed your allowance as airlines are becoming very strict and will charge you all small fortune in excess baggage charge.

I believe its 20kg the same as Island cruises, wether its short or long distance. I believe the max with BA is 23k and a fred olsen charter is 25kg, as i believe is P&O. We did a trip around S.America & Antarctica in Jan, flying into Rio & out of B.A with Air France on 20 kgs of luggage. Our cruise was a month in duration, so all our cold weather clothes were worn onto the plane and our formal clothes were left at home, as we couldn't buy any extra luggage capacity. The rules have changed, always check with your agent and carrier.

By the look of it you are flying out to Palma and in from Barbados. As Ocean Village invariably use charter flights there will be restrictions on the weight of luggage and it will probably be 20Kg plus 1 piece of hand luggage. I suggest you check with your cruise agent or directly with P & O in Southampton on 02380 534200 to get a definitive answer and then you can put your mind at ease. Good luck.....Neil Dow.

I would check with your travel agent, if you are leaving from any of the London airports to go America side I think it is up to 32 Kg but if you have to take a regional flight to get to London it might be less, best to check with flight company Regards Iren.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
