There is a myth that you can take as much luggage as you like on a no-fly cruise. With big ships and no flight restrictions, why not right?

However, the amount of luggage you can take on a no-fly cruise departing from a UK port can vary depending on the cruise line and specific cruise ship policies. Cruise lines do not impose strict weight limits on luggage for no-fly cruises, but they may restrict the number and size of bags you can bring.

Adhere to luggage policies for a smooth journey. As a general guideline, most cruise lines recommend limiting each passenger to two suitcases, with dimensions not exceeding a certain size (usually around 62 inches total when you add length, width, and height). Additionally, there may be restrictions on the types of items you can bring on board, such as prohibited items like weapons, flammable materials, or illegal substances. Most cruise lines also do not welcome the carrying onboard of alcohol, but this tends to be more for commercial rational. 

It’s essential to check the specific luggage policies of the cruise line you’re traveling with before you embark on your journey. These policies are usually outlined in the cruise line’s terms and conditions or on their website. You can also contact the cruise line directly or consult your travel agent to clarify luggage allowances and other related questions.

From our research, most cruise lines stipulate that any single luggage item should not weigh more than 20kg and that no passenger should carry more than 90kg per cabin. That said, these are guidelines rather than strict rules like those on airlines, so there does not seem to be a specific rule, and we have never known of any charges or denial of luggage from a cruise operator for a no-fly cruise from the UK.
