I know that many cruises offered in the UK come with the flights as part of the package. Is it possible to remove the flights, pay a lesser amount, and book your own flights? All I know about Titan is what I have read on here and they don't seem to be highly reliable.
I hope by now sammybonny has left Manchester and landed in Athens. May the cruise make up for the bad beginning.
Those from the UK can probably answer better than I about flights, but when I start booking a Mediterranean voyage on Cunard's UK web site and select "Arrange your own flight" instead of "Choose your airport", it states "You have chosen to arrange your own flights and transfers for your party. This does not affect the total price. Select 'Continue without Flights' to confirm your choice." I note there is a £50.00 supplement per person that applies to flights from Manchester rather than London when I "Choose your airport" instead.
The OP's flight departed at 16:02 according to the Manchester airport web site so is still in route to Athens as Host Hattie has mentioned.
Correction: Another booking I just tried to the Mediterranean states "The total holiday price for your party will be reduced by £600.00 if you arrange your own flights and transfers. Select 'Continue without Flights' to confirm your choice." So I guess it depends on the voyage or whether you choose the "Cunard" fare or the "Saver" fare.
