If our flight got in at 7am would we be able to check in when we got done at the airport or do we have to wait till 2 or 3pm to check in. Also do you have storage for our luggage till we can board the ship and is the hotel close to the Celebrity Cruise Line port. Do you have free shuttle service from the airport and to the cruise ship?
Check in time at the Coogee Sands is 2pm. However they will happily store your luggage if you arrive at an earlier time. There is no free shuttle service to Coogee from Sydney Airport, nor is Coogee close to the Celebrity Cruise Line port. But Coogee itself is very well served by bus services, including buses direct to Circular Quay where the overseas terminal is located (journey is approximately 40 minutes). You might contact the Coogee Sands general manager, Tracy Whitelaw, who will be able to supply further information. Good luck, hope you get to stay at Coogee Sands because it's a great waterside destination.
My experience is that it depends on the time of the year. The hotel is incredibly accommodating but if full you have no choice but to wait. When I arrive early (normally around 7am) I book the previous night as I want to make sure I can get into a room.
I use easternsuburbsshuttle to travel between hotel and airport - very efficient and cheap (AU$50).
