We sailed around Australia and New Zealand in February it was a great holiday but we had no luggage limitations as such. We took 3 cases each with weighed around 18 kilos and no excess was charged, but perhaps there has been a clamp down given the current cost of fuel. We flew with Quantas and BA and although we were worried about the duration of the flights we had no problems and were glad we did it. You can see some shots at

There will be formal nights on board and most 'will make the effort' -I think you will be out of place if you do not. So pack the suit and the long dress please!

Regards.
