          Hi

          Welcome to the forum.

          Stressful situation.

          As Wilba has said speak to your agent now!

          How was your cruise packaged?? Did your agent arrange the flights with the cruiseline??

              If it is a cruise line package and NOT a travel agency package, the cruise line has to resolve it.

              BTW what is your scheduled 1st Port of Call after SFO? Hawaii??

              PS which ship?? Golden Princess??

                I believe this is the significant point. Under contract law your contract with - whoever but in this case the “cruise company” you said - actually specifies the obligations of both parties: you to pay etc etc and the ‘cruise company’ to get you to the cruise, through the cruise and return from that cruise. IF you did actually book everything - flight to, cruise and return from - then that ‘cruise company has contracted to deliver all of that. That is unless there is a specified exclusion clause for any element (eg subject to ‘act of God’ or ‘subject to industrial action beyond our control’ - avoid such exemptions!). That is why ‘fly-cruises’ provide the additional protection that, should your flight not get you to the cruise in time or if the cruise is delayed so you miss your return flight, the cruise agent/company has the obligation to bear the costs.

                      Have a look at the BA flyer talk discussion regarding this. As it stands, BA are giving more than 14 days notice to avoid paying compensation under 261/2004.

                        We are due to fly home from Dublin on 28th. I'm hoping short haul flights won't be affected by the aircraft being in the wrong place. If the flight is cancelled, then it will be a night in Dublin courtesy of Seabourn.

                          TBD firstly welcome to the forum, secondly as others have said phone your cruise company you booked with ASAP to see what they are planning to do re new flights.

                          27th is the start of the Glasgow September weekend. 27th and 30th is our public holidays so airport will be busy.

                          Thankfully I’m flying with Virgin on the 28th. 😅
                          don't want to work, just want to cruise.
