Does anyone know what happens to your luggage on day of disembarktion. My ship arrives in port at 6.30am but my flight back to the uk is overnight, will i have to carry my luggage around all day?
i believe they take you and your luggage to a day hotel, that is what happened to everyone on the QM2 into fort lauderdale who was flying back to the UK. i don't know if this is included in your fare if you have a flight included, but i would suspect so. We were flying on to a domestic destination so i'm not 100% sure.
hope this helps
You will be given your luggage...you can actually check luggage at any major hotel in New York City at the front bellman's desk. I recommend you go to the St. Regis...et al.
They offer this service to anyone who is going to check in to the hotel...but the room is not ready..but never check your status...just walk in politely and ask if you could check your bag...give them a dollar or two and they will give you a check..and all will go smoothly.
remember you need to be at the airport at least 2 hours before flights in the international zones for security et al...and Kennedy can be anywhere from 45 min to 1 1/2 hours in a cab (depending on traffic)
