We took 3 cases for me and my husband when we went on arcadia nov 05, 25k is quite a big case, you should have more than enough space, we are doing it the other way round next year flying to barbados and sailing back to southampton you can have as much as you like that wa.

Hen we went the first leg of the world cruise (Jan)several years ago we left several cases in the hold of the ship and collected them in April We were spending a week in America ad then flying home The cost was tiny just a small insurance premium. We collected them from Southampton as we live in Bournemouth.It was brilliant and every thing was secure and in good condition. ideal for the evening clothes. We had 2 children and a grandma so extra luggage was a problem .

Parcel Force in the UK will ship for you. Log onto www.royalmail.co.uk. Alternatively, DHL will always sort something out for you, but it will be expensive. Hope this helps. Andrew Brolly www.letterkennyonline.com/lyithelpingothers.ht.

Cruiser - Answered a Question by Hamilton (13 Oct 07 07:59)

We have just come back from a cruise and we had exactly the same problem. We sent extra luggage by courier and it worked. The only thing to remember is that they do not necessarily do as they promise e.g. we arranged for next day delivery both there and back but on both occasions they were delayed by a day do on the way there make sure that you arrange for them to be sent a good few days in advance. We were fortunate that the hotel we stayed in overnight pre-cruise allowed us to send our cases there for our arrival. They also allowed us to leave our extra baggage three for the return pick up which was absolutely wonderful. I cannot recommend a courier because in my experience, one is much the same as the other. Hope this helps.

Fly with Virgin normal economy passangers are allowed 2 case at 23.5 kg each. If you upgrade to prem class or first class you are allowed 3 cases at 32 kg each. I can't cruise with less than 42 kg of luggage.

Most airlines give you the option of paying for excess bagage prior to your flight.ie BA will only charge £43 for any additional bag. Check this with your airline.

Hi 25K does not sound much, when get your tickets I am sure that you will have more than 25k each but I suppose it depends on who you booked with and who's aircraft you are flying on, when sailing P&O its usualy 32k each and one hand luggege of 12.5k.

We have returned from Barbados several times after cruising with P&O. We have usually had two soft cases and a hanger case. Normally these do not exceed 50kg on outward journey, however on return usually more say 5kg to to 10kg. P&O have a system where your cases are collected from outside your cabin no later than midnight, last night of cruise. You identify them on dock side next morning, the they are taken to the airport and loaded onto plane, you do not touch them again after the dock side. I do not believe they are weighed before loading.

Exciting news from a Celebrity

By Julia Rhodes

2018 is going to be an exciting year for cruising and Celebrity are really mixing it up a bit!For a few years now we have had the lovely Eclipse based in Southampton, which has been great as P&O, Cunard and Royal Caribbean notably dominated the port until the 5* Eclipse was based there. Just what cruisers needed. I even personally sailed on the Eclipse back in May for a mini cruise to Le Harve. It is a beautiful ship it has to be said and the food, service, cabins etc are all top notch. B...
