Embarkation in Southampton was a mess. It was anticipated that there would be much fanfare for this very special once in a life time event, yet no one paid any attention to the instructions that we as passengers received beforehand. We had been advised to be at the terminal at a designated time to board. We had arranged our taxi from the hotel to coincide with this but were left queuing for hours in a very hot terminal. Had we known we could have either stayed in our very comfortable hotel or walked around Southampton and seen a bit more of this historic port. The idea we thought was to settle into our cabin and then enjoy the send off on this epic voyage. The result was a very delayed departure as mentioned before.

a lovely port and close to everything. Easy to navigate and explore. The Maritime Museum was amazing. Would have been nice to stay overnight to see everything.

Especially liked the photo taking facility in the terminal which we could email free of charge and so simple to use, a very clever idea, which other ports had this instead of all those worthless ships, posed photos.

We were fortunate to arrive in New York a day before disembarkation so had a chance to find our bearings in this fascinating city that never sleeps.

The next day disembarkation was simple and efficient and customs and emigration were very pleasant and helpful
