How it Works
To your Ship
(in 2018, we will start 1 hour earlier than stated below)
Each driver will be tasked to collect 3 couples from 3 different Hotels in London or near Heathrow. We schedule the pickups according to location. If you are staying farthest from the ship, then yours will be the first pickup at 10:00am. Working towards the ship the whole time, we make the remaining pickups in a logical, geographic order. If you are staying in a hotel close to Heathrow yours is likely to be the final pickup at about 11:00am. We reach your ship between 12:30pm and 1:00pm (depending on traffic.) We will collect you from any Hotel; appartment or private address in Central London. We can sometimes make pickups outside of Central London, feel free to ask.
Each booking will be issued a specific planned pickup time (between 10am and 11am). This information is calculated 48 hours before travel and published on our office answer phone after 12noon on the day before travel. Your ticket prompts you to call in and gives the phone number to call.
From your Ship
Our Shuttle is scheduled to leave your ship at 9:30am. Driver will be ready by 08:45am. We ask you to aim to be off the ship by 9am. Because we are waiting only for 3 or 4 couples, we often get away early. (please don't linger on the ship waiting for 9:30am, as everyone else will be in the van waiting.)
We make drops in a logical geograpic order starting with Heathrow Airport at about 11:00am. We will drop you right at your required flight terminal. (Please have your flight number handy so our driver can check). Then we proceed into Central London and drop you off right at your own hotel; appartment or private address in Central London.

Southampton is situated centrally along the South Coast of England, protected by the Isle of Wight, which lies just 4 miles off shore. Southampton is one of many ancient cities in England. Evidence of Stone Age occupation have been found dating back many thousands of years. But the Romans really established the area around Southampton as a trading port during their 400 year occupation of the British Isles from (40 to 410AD). Some architecture still stands from the later occupation by The Normans (1066 - 1154AD), and from Medieval period (1154 - 1485AD)
And of course Southampton port was the original point of departure for the Pilgrim Fathers aboard the Mayflower in 1623. And the fated maiden voyage of Titanic in 1912. Situated 65 miles from Heathrow and 85 miles from Central london, many of Silver Fleet cruise transfer passengers feel comfortable staying a night or two in this city before their cruise.
Heathrow Airport Connection
Heathrow Airport is about 70 miles (112km) from Southampton Docks. Journey time on a clear road is about 1 hour, 20 mins. At peak times - regular rush hour traffic - it can take 2 hours.
Heathrow Airport to Southampton
All our Southampton Shuttle services will collect you from ANY HOTEL near to Heathrow Airport. Pickup time is set by our travel office a day or so before travel but is likely to be about 11am. So if you fly into Heathrow Airport the day before Sailing Date, and stay over locally, our Southampton Shuttle is the most convenient way to complete your journey - door to door, to your ship. We reach your ship by about 12:30pm
Are you flying into Heathrow Airport ON SAILING DAY? Sorry but we no longer offer a pickup if you land Heathrow on same day as sailing from Southampton. The risks are too high.
There are many large budget hotels within a mile of all three cruise terminals at Southampton. IBIS, HOLIDAY INN, NOVOTEL
There is one 'Deluxe' hotel (but with questionable reviews) GRAND HARBOUR
There are some 'OLD' Hotels in the city centre with wonky floors (and ghosts) MERCURE DOLPHIN
This is a not an ordinary Big Brand modern hotel. The building dates back to victorian times. Has been nicely refurbished and seems to be a favoured local restaurant in its own right. Only a small number of rooms so book early. They are listed on TripAdvisor only as a restaurant which is a shame. They have attracted many favourable reviews with Google. I personally dropped some clients here in October 2015 and it looked to be a very nice place, in a fine location close to Gate 4 Southampton Pier, and the staff were very professional. I’ve never stayed or eaten here, but at next opportunity, I will. (Tony)
Southampton Cruise Terminals
There are four Southampton Cruise Terminals, each can accommodate the largest deep water ship currently on the high seas. Unlike cruise terminals in other parts of the world, at Southampton the ships berth right up against the terminal. The ships walkway connects directly inside the terminal, so there is minimal walking and no tenders. The Porters are always on hand to help you with luggage and there are plenty of carts if you want to haul your own. Signs indicate that tipping is NOT required at, but it’s nice to give the price of a cup of tea if your porter has been particularly helpful (and you will find that they are)
There are toilets but no shops. Refreshments are limited and you may need local currency change for the vending machine. (Pounds)
Ocean Terminal - Accessed through gate 4 the newest and most modern
City Terminal - Accessed through gates 8; 10 and 20, modern and large enough
Mayflower Terminal - Accessed through gates 8; 10 and 20, small with limited seating
QE II Terminal - Accessed through Gate 4, older, like an aircraft hanger. Vehicles drive inside to drop off and collect clients.
Most hotels in Southampton are located within a mile or so of the cruise terminals. It’s a short drive in a local taxi which the staff at hotel reception will arrange for you.
