Morning Transfer To Southampton Cruise Terminals
Pick up available from over 200 London and Heathrow hotels.
Exclusive tour transfer in a luxury touring coach
A half day tour transfer with pickups from central London and Heathrow hotels. This service is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, NCL, Oceania, Celebrity, Princess and Azamara Quest cruise ships are visiting Southampton. We also offer this service on selected dates for other ships on 'repositioning' cruises. This service is also available to customers on other ships not listed if your transfer date coincides with the ships listed above (eg P&O Britannia).
You will be driven in an air conditioned touring bus to your Southampton Cruise Terminal via a short stop of 90 minutes at world famous Stonehenge. Many of our coaches do have toilet facilities, but if not the driver will be happy to arrange a 15/20 minute comfort stop en route to Stonehenge if required.
On arrival in Southampton simply disembark from the coach and walk into check-in. The porters will take your luggage and the next time you see it will be inside your cabin. We plan to drop you at your cruise terminal between 13:30 and 14:00, in time for a late lunch!
Entry to Stonehenge is included in the price of the transfer. We will spend 90-120 minutes at Stonehenge. Your booking includes entry to the visitor centre, neolithic village, return transfer from the visitor centre to the stones and an audio gudied tour of the stones. Learn of the people who constructed Stonehenge, the methods they used, the purpose of the circle and how many questions still remain unanswered after 4000-5000 years!
There are bathroom facilities, free wifi, a gift shop and a cafe available at Stonehenge.
Collection from your central London hotel
The coach will collect from the central London hotels between 07:00 and 08:15, see link for a complete list of all hotels covered along with the relevant pick up time. You must be ready for collection in your specified hotel reception area, 10 minutes prior to the stated pick up time on your ticket.
Don't worry if you hotel is not on our list of hotels; please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you in meeting this tour. When enquiring about hotel pick ups please ensure you provide us with the name and full address of the hotel.
On departure from London we may use several vehicles collecting from hotels to ensure we complete the pick ups as quickly and efficiently as possible. You may be collected by the main coach, or one of our smaller vehicles to transfer you to the coach.
Pickup Locations At Heathrow Airport
We will then collect people staying at the Heathrow hotels listed between 09:00-09:45. You must be ready and waiting in the hotel reception area from 09:00. We do not pick-up from the passenger terminals at Heathrow, only from the hotels listed. There are frequent 'Hoppa Buses' between passenger terminals and the main airport hotels.
If you are arriving at Heathrow airport on the morning of departure we recommend you make your way from the airport terminals to the hotel reception areas below for collection:
Arriving at Terminal 1, 2 or 3 - Please go to Park Inn Heathrow, Bath Road, UB7 0DU.
Arriving at Terminal 4 - Please go to Hilton Heathrow Terminal 4, Hounslow, TW6 3AF.
Arriving at Terminal 5 - Please go to Sofitel Heathrow Terminal 5, Heathrow, TW6 2GD.
There are four cruise terminals at Southampton.
In normal circumstances the coach will take an hour or slightly less to travel from Stonehenge to Southampton arriving between 13:30 to 14:00. At Southampton step off the coach and walk straight to the check-in desk. Porters will take care of your luggage, ensuring it is delivered directly to your cabin. Make sure you use the luggage label in your cruise pack to facilitate this.
