Your luggage allowance depends on what type of cruise you are doing. Sailing to and from the UK? Great! There are no restrictions on the number of bags you can bring on board, so pile them up but remember that each individual piece of luggage should not exceed 23kg for health and safety reasons.
If you’re embarking on a fly-cruise holiday, the luggage allowance will fluctuate depending on which airline you are travelling with and where you are travelling to. Charter flights and scheduled international flights usually operate a luggage allowance of between 20-23kg per person, in addition to one item of hand luggage. If your fly-cruise incorporates internal domestic flights, through India, the Far East or Africa for example, then you’ll need to bear these luggage restrictions in mind too. Don’t worry, your cruise consultant will confirm the necessary information regarding luggage allowances at the time of booking!
Luggage labels will be provided within your holiday information pack, alternatively some cruise lines now use an e-ticket service enabling you to download and print your own luggage labels at the ticketing stage. Those who opt to use the cruise line’s e-service will receive notification via email when holiday documentation is available, including the option to print your own luggage labels from approximately 40 days before sailing.
