I don't but Royal Caribbean will...either ring them and ask or ask your TA to do it for you. You could also ask them for a "Locator Number" which allows you to find out various things about your flight on the Airlines web-site....regards....Nei.

Whilst RCI do not guarentee direct flights - from LHR there is a good chance you will get BA flights down to BCN. Be prepared for an indirect flight though...

I am also on Voyager and I opted not to book flights with RCI as I live near Newcastle and they were unable to offer direct flights from this airport. However Sleazyjet's timetable is perfect so I've booked with them for a measly £60 return. The only potential problem is if Stelios cancels the flight. Did you consider separating the cruise from the flight? Lots of people do these days (and some booking agents also bundle up low cost flights with cruises) as it seems to be cheaper and more convenient.

Yes, we did consider easy Jet - we are only 30 mins from Luton so it would have been a much easier trip all round. However, I fly a couple of times a year to Aberdeen and have had some really bad experiences - including having 3 consecutive flights cancelled over 3 days and eventually hiring a car to drive back.Easy Jet do nothing for you if your flights are cancelled - and I really mean nothing!! At this stage my son was still a baby so no fun. In forness Easy jet do seem to have been more reliable lately - long may it last. Perhaps if we hadn't had the children with us we would have considered it We also booked some time ago so difficult to know what flight times were likely to be. The flights were a substantial add on to the cruise so perhaps we'll be a bit braver next time.

I think that you were right to avoid most other air connections if you are planning to go straight from the airport and board the ship. So many times there have been delays that have made embarkation difficult and sometimes impossible. If you are going to use this method go at least one day early but that can negate the cost-saving. With the cheaper airlines, now charging extra to breathe fresh air onboard, taking the normal amount of luggage for a cruise is almost always an extra charge each way and in the travel columns of newspapers the word is that it is as cheap and more reliable to fly BA than to go with others with add on this and add on that.....Ida .

Best Burger at Sea!

By Zara Kelly

Its been a few weeks since I have done a food blog, so I thought I would dedicate a blog to why there MUST be excellent burgers at sea!On a cruise you can never go hungry, food is plentiful but there is something satisfying about a good burger. I am no connoisseur, but my husband is. If ever I need to get into his good book, I know what to serve. I took him to an amazing restaurant for his 40th (see below!).I am a little bit of a food snob, but that all changed when I experienced Johnny Rocke...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...

The Nightmare Of Packing For A Holiday !

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
