HOW TO SHIP
Shipping luggage to a cruise ship: an easy guide
Luggage deliveries from cruise ships can be tricky because you have to make sure the package and the ship reach the port at the same time. It is essential that you contact the cruise company and get the exact details and the complete address where your parcel will be sent to or collected from.
Learn how to make sure your cruise luggage shipping service goes smoothly:
Fill in the address information
When filling the address information, it’s essential to add the cruise company name so that the courier can find the right drop-off location at the port.
Make sure the port is accessible
Contact the company and the port authorities to make sure the port is accessible. When the vehicle of the courier company needs special permission to enter the port, this should be communicated before.
Book with enough time
Book your cruise luggage shipping at least 2 working days before the planned departure or arrival time. For urgent deliveries, consider shipping through our express service, and be sure to check delivery times before shipping.
Prepare your package
Please make sure that all your luggage items are properly packed for the courier driver to pick them up with ease. Check how to properly package all kinds of items with our helpful packing guides.
Shipping luggage to or from a cruise: where should I address my package?
One of the most important things when shipping your luggage directly to a port is to make sure there will be someone available there to pick up your suitcases or hand them over to the courier in case you decide to book a luggage delivery to a cruise ship.
We recommend you check with the company beforehand and make sure you have the correct address but most cruise luggage services are used for shipping to or from these locations:
Dedicated company offices
Cruise ships may have a dedicated office in different ports to facilitate cruise luggage shipping services. Contact the company beforehand and ask if it is possible to list their port offices as a pick-up or delivery address.
Port house or office
In other cases, the port may have an office with a luggage room where your suitcase can be safely stored. Call them to find out if it is possible to ship your cruise luggage there and discuss what the alternatives might be.
Port luggage depots
When visiting major ports, there might be a luggage depot nearby. Whether it is operated by one of our partner couriers or by an independent company, these depots know what to do when delivering luggage to a port.
