We headed to Southampton on a bright autumn afternoon - looking forward to our 16th cruise on our largest ship to date.
We entered the port of Southampton via dock gate 8 - dock gate 8 is near the holiday inn - it can be tricky to find as the sgins are not clear.
AB Parking were on duty at the city cruise terminal - as it was a short cruise it was self parking - we got a great space close to the terminal. In my opinion the staff were not as jolly as the CPS (cruise and passenger services) staff who service the carnival ships (p and o etc ) There were no porters around to take luggage - as it was just 3 nights we carried our bags on with us.
Great - best yet!
Just be warned RCI do not advance ships clocks to local time in Europe and the causes great confusion.
