Your travel arrangements.

Upgrade your flight.

We offer the option to upgrade your flights to premium economy, business, or first class on your preferred airline. Upgrades can be booked from 11 months prior to departure, subject to availability.

Change your flight.

We know many of you choose to combine your cruise with a visit to friends and family or a few days exploring independently. Let us know as soon as possible, and we can help arrange flights to suit your travel plans.

Add another destination.

If your cruise involves a long flight, you may wish to stop for a few days en route. Or arrive early at a destination close to your embarkation port. Whatever your holiday plans, we can tailor flight options to suit you.

Useful flight information.

All flights.

Where the sailing time permits and subject to availability, your flights will be arranged for the day of embarkation/disembarkation.

  • Flights will not necessarily be direct or non-stop. All flight times, air carriers, and flight routings are subject to change. Cunard has no control over any changes airlines may make to flight times, but will inform you of any changes.
  • We will determine the city airport, e.g. for London either Heathrow, Gatwick or London City may be used and this may not be the same for your outbound and returning flights. Therefore you may have to make your own arrangements for transfer between London airports. For Quebec, Quebec or Montreal may be used.
  • For long-haul flights, if you have any special dietary requirements, including child meal requests, please advise us at the time of booking or at least seven days prior to travel. We are unable to guarantee that all requests can be met.
  • Any amendment or cancellation made prior to departure will incur an administration fee of $25 per person, plus any costs charged by airline. Costs vary depending on the airline and the change(s) you want to make. 

 

Regional departures.

Our single Transatlantic Crossing fares include an economy class flight between New York and the UK

  • If you would like return flights from your regional airport,* we can fly you between your regional airport and New York and then between Southampton and your regional airport from $115 per person.
  • The regional flight supplement is in addition to any Cunard Fare.
  • Flights are offered subject to airline schedules available at the time of booking. Should subsequent schedule changes result in no regional service being available from a particular airport, no alternative transport will be provided and any regional supplement will be refunded in full.
  • Regional flights will not be necessarily be direct or non-stop.
  • If a same day connection is not possible, the cost of any overnight accommodation will be at your own expense.
  • Flights from Guernsey and Jersey can only be booked the day prior to your onward travel, and overnight accommodation will be at your own expense.
  • If you book regional flights to/from Southampton airport through us, then the fare includes optional transfers to/from the cruise terminal. If you would rather make your own way between the airport and the port, please advise us at the time of booking.
  • Transfers between London airports are not included.

*Please note that not all regional flights operate to New York on a daily basis, so indirect flights may be offered as an alternative.

Required hotel stays.

Cunard will arrange flights and transfers for you to join your ship on the day of embarkation. However, where the included flight timings require a pre-/post-cruise overnight stay, a hotel room at the international port of embarkation/disembarkation is included in your cruise fare for the night before or after your cruise.

Luggage allowance.

Luggage allowances vary by airline and destination, but are generally between 44 lbs and 50 lbs per person. While some airlines have an allowance that is greater than 50 lbs, we request that no individual bag weighs more than this to ensure safe handling by our crew.
