■午後1時25分に香港空港着の便を利用しました。荷物は手元のバッグだけで、飛行機に預けた荷物はありませんでした。 ■スカイピアのチェックインカウンターに午後2時前に到着しました。午後4時15分の乗船チケットを持っていましたが、ひとつ前の午後2時15分の船に変更して乗船することができました。 ■隣のカウンターにいたお客さん(同じ飛行機だったみたいです)は、午後2時15分の船を予約していたようですが、係員に「あなたは午後4時15分の船に変更します。理由は、機内預けの荷物をフェリーに移すことが出航までに間に合わないからです」と言われていました。 ■下記は、フェリーチケット購入の際の注意書の一部です。 Passengers Notice (Air to Sea): ●Registration and luggage transit for passengers WITH checked baggage will stop 60 minutes before sailing time. ●Registration for passengers WITHOUT checked baggage will stop 30 minutes before sailing time. ■わたしの荷物は手元のバッグだけだったので、2時15分の船に変更してもらうことがギリギリ間に合いました。今回はうまくいきましたが、飛行機からの降機にかかる時間や、ゲートからスカイピアへの徒歩移動に結構時間がかかることを考えたら、今後この2時15分に乗船したい場合は、もう少し早く香港空港に到着する飛行機のほうがよいと思いました。

Luggage on Hong Kong to Macau Cotai Water Jet (2 Replies)
Hi, I intend to reserve online our tickets to go from HK to Macau on the Cotai Water Jet and return. As I understand I will receive an email showing the ticketing information and I take this to the ticketing counter to redeem our tickets. However we will both have 1 luggage bag each (around 18kgs ea), do I send this across as checked luggage? if so where do I do this - at the ticketing counter? And then how do I claim our luggage on arrival at the other end? Many thanks, Den

You may also carry it on board, like most passengers do. There are luggage racks on the boats.
