Having sailed from Southampton many times we were a bit surprised to find a tail back with CPS parking at the Ocean terminal.The weather caused a certain amount of anxiety amongst those travelling from a far and to make sure they never missed their time or indeed the ship they left in plenty of time, only to find the roads clear and turning up hours before embarkation time.

But once inside and having taken up the donated F card we found time quickly went by and I suppose 30 minutes later we were on the shipKnowing with Cunard that our cases will be safely placed in our cabins we headed for the Lido buffet and with our couple of cruise chums started the cruise from there.

We have always found that the lido gives a varied and tasty selection with the addition of an ice cream cone be a child again, if one desires any time of the day.
