Please speak to our agent to book and put you onto The Crochet Cruise Shuttle. We may have multiple shuttles depending on the number of guests we will be picking up.
The INTERNET is often the best way to book your flights. Choose your favourite airline. We have been happy with Southwest airlines. Our luggage has never been a problem plus prices are very completive. However if you are wanting help, Sherry is more then willing to arrange flights for you. There is a $25.00 fee per ticket that she arranges.
It is a good idea to book a hotel the night before the cruise. Winter weather has it's surprises. It's better to be a day early and get on the ship then chance it. We have had some close calls. Also double check dates & time. We leaving the ship, do expect delays.
