Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by carberry (26 May 08 00:07)

You should be alright. The ship will wait if it is, as I assume, a coach arranged by them. The normal time to reach the docks is one and a half to two hours although this weekend it took me nearly three hours to reach Southampton from Heathrow because of the bank holiday traffic so it will depend on the day as to whether they are pushing it a little. An alternative is to make your own way earlier to the dock and you can do this by scheduled coach which will take a while but is cheap, train which is convoluted from Heathrow or taxi (which should be arranged from the Southampton end) and will cost about £70. I would stick with the guaranteed way and not worry Neil .

If it is a cruise ship organised transfer then the ship will wait. If you arranged it yourself then the onus is on you to get there in time. LHR to Southampton should be 1 1/2 hrs drive on a clear run.

If you look on the Eavesway website, then 13:45 is the normal time of departure from Heathrow for the Cruiselink service. You should have no problem and the ship will wait if late. The coach starts from Victoria coach station at 1p.

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Whos behind the scenes?

By Silvana Hollinrake

Silvana Hollinrake's blog

Restaurants on cruise ships always fascinate me. The planning that must go behind the scenes must be unbelievable and skilled, serving thousands of guests on a daily basis on a two to three hour window slot accommodating clients special requests sounds challenging. Imagine the pressure of staff having to go through these challenging shifts more than once a day and every day and for the length of their contracted work season. It sounds like a hard work and a lot of responsibility trying to off...
