We flew back from acapulco with Thomsons(leg room was good)after panama canal cruise to east midlands airport and refuelled at miami. didnt get off the plane and it took apx 1 hour. Total time from Acapulco airport to ema was 13 hours, The airport at Acapulco is very small and not many seats, 1/3 of passengers had to stand or sit on floor.

Many thanks for your information. Pity that you couldn't stretch your legs at re-fuelling!

We have flown to Acapulco but with Thomsons and from East Mids.We put down in Halifax ,Canada.As I remember it in Dec and about minus 15c.The Canadians wer very hospitable and laid on a very pleasant breakfast buffet,Cereals Fruit Yoghurt Soft drinks and various snacks.Other flights joining the same ship [Arcadia] used Bangor Maine,Barbados and I think Cuba.

We are flying with Thomas Cook - so will have to wait and see where they decide to stop. Thankyou for replying.

It is usually an island off the coast of Cuba. But wherever it is you will not be able to get off the plane. The landing is just for refuelling and a crew change. I have heard that some flights do it in one go - so you just might be lucky.

We flew to Acapulco to join Oceana for her Christmas cruise. We should have left UK on 12th Dec am, instead it got changed to 11th Dec pm from Manchester. We were the lucky ones, we flew Thomson - very good 9 hours to Sanford, Florida, 1 hour on the plane, and a further 3 hours to Acapulco arriving 7.00am 12th Dec. We were on board within the hour and had the day to explore, albeit a little tired. Second Manchester flight left on Friday 12th via Ireland and Aruba. Birmingham flight on the friday went via Miami with a four hour stop, they were told to get off the plane where US immigration confiscated everyones duty free. Gatwick flight was delayed 4 hours and they went via Barbados. I think its hit and miss. Last people got onboard 5 hours after we were due to sail. Didn't spoil the holiday at all, you have to grin and bear it with charter flight companies. Other people on board moaned non stop for two weeks- Hope you have a good trip, Oceana's one of my favourites and we had a wonderful time!

Sounds like you had a horrendous flight. I hope ours is better. We are flying from Manchester. I guess I will have to take a sleeping pill or a few brandies!.

We have just returned from the Panama cruise on the Artemis having flown from Manchester. The flight was several hours late leaving and refuelled in Miami including a crew change which took 1.5 hours. A further 3 hours flight to Acupulco. The transportation from the airport was very slow and we eventually arrived on board 23 hours from leaving home so go and enjoy your cruise.

Thanks for your information. I gathered it would be about 15 or 16 hours.

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
