We disembarked in Southampton. Unfortunately, we had to do face-to-face customs on the ship, which significantly delayed our departure. Everyone was getting off at the same time so the taxi queues were incredibly long. Once in a taxi, it's an easy, five-minute ride to the central train station and cost 7 pounds. I'm not sure if the taxis take credit cards, so you'll want to make sure to have local currency first. From Southampton, we took the train to Victoria Station in London. We had bought advanced tickets online; however, we missed our scheduled train due to the long lines at customs and in the port. We were able to buy tickets for the next train (they depart once every hour) for less than 20 Euros pp. The journey is 1:45 hrs. There were also trains to Waterloo Station. From Victoria Station, you can take the Underground to other parts of the city. We stayed in a hotel near Victoria and walked. Read Less

Most of the ports that we visited were 20-40 minutes away from the town as well as being mostly container ports which were noisy and dirty. We felt that Cunard had not given much thought to the age of the passengers who were mainly 65+ with limited mobility. Some of the ports of call used coaches that had no air con/pa system and were built for the local ‘slight’ population. Not much thought given to the trips that were offered which could be challenging for younger/able bodied people not really for those on board ship Read Less
