One passenger warned: “The airline ticket with the cruise line means you leave it up to them. Your flight can be at 6:00 AM or 6:00 PM.
“And unless you ask for a deviation, you’ll arrive on the day, which isn’t usually a good idea if it’s a long-haul flight.”
Some passengers don’t want to board the ship right away after a long flight, as they may not have enough time to recover.
However, another guest said they prefer the cruise line to manage the flights as it usually works out cheaper.
