Be sure to check with the airlines before you leave home regarding luggage. We saw several people ditching items rather than pay Air New Zealand’s exorbitant baggage and weight fees. We were told that we were only allowed 1 bag per person (we had 2 bags pp) and the extra bags would cost $200 per bag, their website said $70.00. After expressing our outrage, she checked our reservations again, and said that whomever booked the reservations did the right thing (whatever that meant, and why didn’t she see this the first time), she even called over the reservationist next to her to see our reservations, because it was the first one that was done correctly all day, we did not even had to pay for our extra bags. (Thank you Lord, and Celebrity, who booked the air for us).
We invariably select our cruises for the itinerary and we were not disappointed. We had a fantastic cruise, lovely ship and great ports. Like I mentioned before we have already booked another cruise on the Solstice.
