Q. How much luggage can I bring with me?
When sailing roundtrip from Southampton, you can bring as many pieces of luggage as you can comfortably fit into your cabin, as long as each item weighs no more than 23 kilograms for safety and handling purposes.
If an individual piece of luggage exceeds 23kg at embarkation you will be recalled to the terminal and asked to remove items or repack your bags. Your baggage may also be delayed at disembarkation if you exceed this limit.
We would suggest you carry your suit carrier to avoid any accidental damage during the loading process along conveyor belts where straps, handles or the bag itself may get caught and tear.
Please note, suit / dress carriers form part of your flight luggage allowance where applicable.
Cruise Connect restrict guests to a luggage allowance of two 'medium' cases weighing no more than 23kgs per piece plus one item of hand luggage per person. For further details, please contact Cruise Connect directly on 0843 374 2246 (Calls cost 3p per minute plus your telephone company’s network access charge) from 8.30am - 8pm, 7days a week or visit their dedicated website - www.intercruises.com/cruiseconnect.

When flying to meet the ship, both the charter and scheduled flight luggage restrictions vary, but are usually between 20 and 23 kilograms per person. Please visit the Flights page of your Cruise Personaliser online to confirm. If your airline allowance is greater than 23 kilograms, we ask that no individual item of luggage weighs more than 23 kilograms, in order to be safely handled by the ship’s crew.
