    After much deliberation, I have decided to leave the case as it is and not disrupt my carefully planned and neat packing. But I have put a small flat zipper bag in the top, just incase I am called back to the naughty room.


      Hi all
      We are traveling down on Eavesway,,their baggage limit is 20kg per case.

        23kg is common and it is a health and safety consideration. If your bags are heavy they need special handling, hence the overweight bags desk in the airport. P&O will probably enforce the rule or they could end up with an expensive law suit if a handler is injured. We normally take two cases,, both around 18kg because I always bring back more than I take.
        That's what I've always understood- H&S for anyone handling the case, both dock workers and crew. I've seen it in other literature for cruise lines.


          Health and safety is the primary issue. Furthermore, a very heavy bag is more likely to be damaged, if the baggage handlers drop it on its way to your cabin. You should also consider the size of the suitcase. A heavy suitcase might also be rather large. Will you be able to store it under your bed, after you have unpacked?
