The last cruise I took which included Thompsons flights and Thomas Cook, we were only allowed 23kg even in premium seats. When you get your tickets it will give the allowance for that charter as the heavier the load on the aircraft the more fuel it uses therefore the cost of the charter is greater to the company chartering the plane.

You will know the definite answer when you get your tickets as the cruise company may have its own say on what the limit will be. The Thomsons website states the following Customers choosing to book a Premium Seat (on selected flights) will enjoy an inclusive check in baggage allowance as follows: - For customers travelling before 30th April 2009 Long haul customers choosing to book a Premium seat will receive a total of 30g baggage allowance (a maximum of 25kg can be checked in to the hold and up to 10kg can be taken on board but the total should not be more than 30kg). Short haul customers choosing to book a Premium seat will receive a total of 25kg baggage allowance (a maximum of 20kg can be checked in to the hold and up to 10kg can be taken on board but the total should not be more than 25kg). Please also see our Standard Baggage Conditions below.

Thanks for the info, I had read the above information on the Thomson website which is why I was confused. Looks like one shirt and a pair of trousers for my husband and the rest of the allowance for me!!!! Its our first cruise, now getting really excited.

To be quite honest we had 23kgs allowance on our recent transatlantic to the Caribbean and a) we had plenty of space for everything we needed (a suit and blazer and trousers for john and 3 formal outfits for me) and b) we couldn't have lifted anything heavier than that!!!! Remember you still have your hand luggage to add on to that!!

Over the years you may have read my blogs about my friend John who has been wrongly imprisoned in India.

However, the India authorities refused to give them b...

What is the dress code?

By Rosie Taylor

Rosie Taylor's blog

This is a question that comes up quite a lot when deciding which cruise to book.It really does depend on the cruise line.The general rule is 2 formal nights per week.How formal is formal? Well, this is a good question because recently a customer of mine came home from a cruise with Royal Caribbean and even on the formal nights some people where really casual. Trousers and polo shirts. Not even a shirt and tie!It seems that Royal Caribbean have really relaxed the dress code.Celebrity cruises ...
