Default question about air reservations

Hi all,

Quick question. We are going on Legend next year from New Zealand to Australia. We have taken 2 other cruises with RCCL before and have had excellent experiences. My wife is not too crazy about flying especially since 9/11, but always wanted to go to Australia, so off we go.

Question is this. Her friend told her that she heard some cruise lines may book couples on different flights such as myself on United and my wife on Air New Zealand, even though we booked together and are staying in the same cabin. Now she is paranoid...but I never heard of cruise lines doing this. Anybody hear anything such as this? Thanks for your feedback.

-Mike

Hi Mike,
I have never heard of any cruiseline booked couples on seperate flights, its a new one to me. Although I have heard of cases where the seating assignments on the plane is less than desirable, different rows where kids are seated all alone, but not different flights like this. I would definitely mention this to your travel agent, doesn't sound right to me, good luck.

Hi
Just returned from Aus/NZ on 17 March.
I requested Qantas and Air New Zealand. Qantas was direct from LA to Sydney. Air New Zealand was direct from Auckland to LA.
For the $ 50 deviation fee it was worth it. Both Air New Zealand and Qantas has ample room between seats and lots of leg room.
Others on the cruise that I spoke to who had United were in pain !

I agree with Van. Check out on-line which would be the best flights for you from your home airport and the present cost. Call your TA with this in mind and ask for the Air deviation charge and arrangments which RCI would make for you. They will tell you which flight and at what times and for how much (it could be an additional amount in excess of the deviation fee). Then you can decide if its worth the peace of mind to you. Also, since the travel time is so long, are you considering going a day early? Just book this once for the same deviation fee through the cruise line.
bon Voyage
