Getting to Southampton

Ways to reach the port

We stagger our guests’ embarkation and disembarkation to keep waiting around to a minimum. You’ll board the ship in the afternoon, but we’ll give you your exact time slot well in advance.
When you return, you’ll disembark in the morning.

How to get to your ship:

Coach - transfers can be arranged from 50 points across the UK through our official coach transfer service

Rail - Southampton Central is between 1 and 2 miles away, depending on your cruise terminal. A taxi will take 5-15 minutes, but may take longer at peak times.

Fly - Southampton International Airport is 5 miles from the cruise terminals, just off junction 5 on the M27. Use the airport taxi desk to get a taxi to the port. On your return, the taxi rank for the airport is located outside each cruise terminal. Pre-booking is recommended.

Drive - use our safe and secure car park near the terminal. Porters will be on hand to take care of your luggage while you check in your car.

Your luggage

How much luggage can I bring with me?

As much as you like!

When sailing roundtrip from Southampton, bring as many pieces of luggage as you can comfortably fit into your cabin.

That means more shoes, bags, evening wear, electricals, jewellery, books and ‘just in case’ items. Just make sure that each luggage item weighs no more than 23 kilograms for safety and handling purposes.

To make things even easier, The Baggage Handling Company can pick up your bags a few days before you travel, for safe delivery directly to your cabin. They can then be returned to your home at the end of your cruise.
