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.

Mysterious Myth or Superstitio...

By Alana Mills

Ahoy there!Sailors over the years have had many superstitions that they believed in. It is no wonder if you think about it as they navigated around the world with no satellites or ship to shore in-case of an emergency. Also, bear in mind as going to sea is one of the worlds oldest occupations, the time these myths were established, it is only natural that where inexplicable events have occurred, superstition and myth have played a major role in providing reasons for their occurrence.So here ...

My first Transatlantic.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I’ve just returned from my first transatlantic cruise. I’ve always wanted to sail into the U.S.A and fly home. To say I’ve been and seen my friends across the pond without flying. I have to say i did really enjoy it. I very much liked the ship. There were a couple of hiccups and if I’m honest I probably wouldn’t do a transatlantic again but I’ve ticked it off. Thais why you have a bucket list to do what you want to do and tick it off the list.It had been 10...

Naples a great port to visit

By Shirley McCue

Shirley McCue's blog

 I remember my experience of returning to Naples as a cruise passenger with fond memories. Most passengers were eager to scramble into coaches that would whisk them away to see the fascinating ruins of Pompeii or drive down to the winding roads of the Amalfi coast on their journey to Sorrento. This was not my plan as I wanted my family to experience some of my childhood memories. Naples is a large city steeped in history with lots of hidden treasures, some a little too far to venture to ...
