You could try the Novtel As far as trips go it depends it is is a full day or a half day one.We fine we pay bewteen £30 and £40 for the half day ones we avoid the all day as we are there to enjoy our self and not go on an endurance test. You can hire taxis/minibuses at the port and do your own thing but jusy make sure you agree a price before you go if you did meet up with some other passengers who have cruised before you could maybe join them or get some useful tips, but whatever happens make sure you are back in plenty of time before the ship sails or it will go without you. Not the case if you are on one of their excursions, but thats the choice you have to think about.

Ring the 0800 number at the top of this page for best prices. The question about hotels in Southampton was discussed here recently.

You can look on Royal Caribbean Web Site and check out the excursions for your cruise. All ships own port tours are always very overpriced, all the local taxis will do exactly same tours and or modify them to your own needs at a much better rate, especially if you are travelling with family or sometimes you can get another couple to share with you. Do some research beforehand and then just negotiate with the taxi drivers.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn next to the dock we were sailing from and watched the Indie depart from across the car park. We chose it because it was offering 15 day's free parking-I don't know if it was a special offer but we asked when we rang to enquire about rooms. We embarked and were looking down on our car-when we disembarked we didn't bother with the ship's luggage collection, but simply wheeled our luggage off and were on the road by 6am. Check where it's docking at the end of your cruise. Enjoy-jo.

A bit late maybe, but we are going on the ios on 1st aug. We have booked 2 nights at the etap hotel in southampton. Quite basic i believe, but clean and pleasant. It is £35 for a room per night. Can't complain at that.

Costa Concordia 5 Years On

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

I am sure most people will remember hearing the news when the Costa Concordia sank. This January we are 5 years on from this tragedy. The ship hit an underwater rock and then capsized near Tuscany. The ship had been carrying 4252 people and unfortunately 32 people drowned when the ship sank. I can remember it clearly seeing videos and images on the tragedy. I can’t imagine how these people felt being in this position. The captain of the ship was sentenced to 16 years in prison for...

P&O offer some fantastic islands and resorts in the Caribbean and have done for a number of years now. Returning to the same destinations doesnt seem to bother regular and repeat P&O customers because lets face it, when you are only in the ports for 1 day there is always something new to see or visiting your favorite beach may be something you really enjoy.Have you ever repeated an itinerary because you have enjoyed it so much?I have visited Cuba, Jamaica and Dominican Republic more t...
