It states that we're each allowed 1 suitcase of up to 50 lbs at no charge...any additional bags incur a surcharge. But then further down the page it says this:
SPECIAL ALLOWANCE FOR SURF**, GOLF & DIVING EQUIPMENTWhile it seems pretty clear that we can each bring our dive gear (up to 23kg/50lbs) at no extra charge, I'm going to be pretty bummed if, when I go to check in, they want to charge me for a second bag.
One (1) bag allowed free of charge, IN ADDITION TO the published free allowance if;
1. It is presented for carriage in a single appropriate & secure package
2. It does not exceed 23kg maximum weight
3. In all cases the second and any subsequent items of sporting equipment are subject to published Excess Baggage Charges (Extra Piece/Oversize and/or over weight as applicable)
Have any PG Cruisers done this? Brought their dive gear in a 2nd bag at no charge?
If I have to leave my CLOTHES home in order to bring my dive gear, that would be the choice I'd make! After almost being killed by defective rental gear in the Galapagos, I will never trust my life to rental dive gear again. Heck I'd go to dinner in my wetsuit if I had to! But I'd sure like to avoid paying that 75 buck 2nd-bag fee.
