Our disembarkation tour was not good. As with all their other tours it was rushed. The promised time to see the castle as well as the village and enjoy time for lunch did not happen. After an hour and a half line up to get into the castle we only had 45 minutes for a quick run through and then back to the bus. Make sure you get ice cream at the little truck at the middle ward shop. It was sooooo good. Someone in our group had to be at the airport shortly after noon so that didn't leave much time for the rest of us. We did however have lots and lots of time sitting at the airport. Read Less

After a long flight we were made to wait quite a while to board. A very long wait at the airport, a long bus ride, followed by another long wait in another line. Then we learn that we had to surrender our passports, which was not good. (We wanted to leave the ship completely, so maybe that's why Princess takes them away, so we're completely trapped in the prison of the sea.) To make things even worse, they made a mistake and didn't print my card and had to give me a temporary card, instructing me to go find a specific place on ship where I could get one printed. However, since I didn't have my card, I was grilled by every single person in every single area as I boarded. This wasn't my mistake, yet I was certainly paying for it. After passing 2 or 3 people, I was not permitted to board the ship until someone went to get me a card. Read Less

By the time we had gone through the endless que to register and get onboard we were too tired. Why oh why do you not have enough staff to cope with the people you are obviously expecting. My 80 year old mother was in some distress by the time we finally got onboard. You simply failed miserably......... NB. Royal Caribbean 1km up the road, absolutely painless, quick and efficient Read Less

I had some extra time prior to the cruise to look around Southampton itself with its old city walls and Tudor House, plenty of shops. I also went over to the Isle of Wight on the car ferry to East Cowes. Takes I hour. There is a bus just near the terminal which I caught to Osborne House. I spent over 4 h there and then returned. Buses go all over the island. Read Less

We arrived in Heathrow and took a National Express bus to Southampton Coach Station. Not many taxis in sight but when one came around, we asked him to call his taxi friends at the port to come over to pick us.

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

Port was not ready for 4k+ passengers to be dumped 2 days earlier. NCL did not have enough buses to offer excursions for their passengers.

Southampton is a very nice port. You can just walk to the city center as well as the train station very easily.
