FLIGHTS & TRANSFERS
Cruise Holiday Flights & Transfers
If you are considering a cruise that involves flying there are critically two options for you to consider; either you can book the cruise lines standard fly/cruise holiday or book your own flights/transfers independently.
Standard Fly/Cruise Holiday
The cruise lines standard fly/cruise holiday will include in the price all outbound and inbound flights (either scheduled or charter flights), all transfers and overnight hotel accommodation (or day room), pre &/or post the cruise (if applicable).
The cruise line will always allocate sufficient time for transfers to your ship, so you can relax in the knowledge that you won't miss the ships departure. In most instances within a standard fly/cruise holiday to the Caribbean for example, on a scheduled flight, an overnight stay at a local hotel the night before the cruise and transfers to/from the pier will be organised as part of the seamless experience.
All transfers are included in the price and you will normally travel in a fully air conditioned coach accompanied by a representative of the cruise line who will be available to meet and greet you at all points of the journey and answer any questions you may have.
Most cruise line standard fly/cruise holidays are based on standard economy class flight seats. However, for a supplement Planet Cruise can organise a flight upgrade for you to enhance your travel experience further.
Booking Flights and Transfers Independently
If you wish to book your flights and transfer arrangements independently you can still book any of the cruises featured on our website on a "cruise only" basis.
We strongly advise that you allow sufficient time on the outward journey to clear customs and transfer to the ship and on the inward journey to disembark the ship and check-in at the airport.
Typically, the cruise lines featured will confirm sailing times on the confirmation, sent after booking. It is worth noting that itinerary changes or cancellations do happen from time to time, and the cruise lines will not be liable for your flight costs in this event.
