Cost and arranging flights for overseas departures.

Sorry if this is a silly question. I usually cruise with P&O or Marella where the quoted prices of cruises departing from an overseas port includes the cost of flights and transfers.

 

I have just been looking at the fares for the Ambience cruise from Sydney to Singapore for 24/2/24 and they seem incredibly good value and cannot possibly include flights in that price, can it, have I missed an add flights option somewhere on the web page?

 

As I have written above I only have experience of flight inclusive cruises. I assume I would have to organise my own flights, transfers and possibly pre stay hotel, or find a travel agent to organise a package, or will Ambassador organise this at extra cost.

 

I have no experience of arranging separate flights, what do you guys do?

The brochure does confirm that the sectors are only offered "Cruise Only" - "...for you to build your own unique holiday package". I've never done it but would use a reputable flight brokers to book the flights. I would recommend one but that would probably get me banned. Presumably you'll have at least a couple of nights before and after the cruise.

whatever you do, don't use one of the generic online agents to book flights

 

they are notorious for passing you from pillar to post if there is a problem with your booking.

 

It isn't worth the saving of a few pounds should something go wrong (obviously it doesn't go wrong for 99.99% of people, but the unlucky one could just be you)

 

Use online sites to get an idea of the cost involved, and then:

 

either book direct with the airline's website, or your trusted local real world travel agent (assuming that you still have one of the latter)
