DeVere is opposite the terminal and there's a Poste House (or there was) nearby.

We have just booked our cruise on the Ventura for August 09 . Last year we stayed at the Premier lodge near the airport the night before departure, however though the Premier Lodge was very comfortable and accomodating etc, for our next Cruise in August, now we know it exists, we have just reserved a room for the night at the Holiday Inn on Herbert Walker way, which is about 200yrd from where the ship actually sails from. (there are other Holiday Inns in the area, but the one I've mentioned, is actually only a stones through away). Rooms start from around £89 per night per room or £104 pnpr if you require breakfast. (You have to pass this Hotel before going through the dock gates to get to the ship). The Holiday Inn also provides a car parking facility for £50 = 15 days parking, with taxi transfer to the ship for £5 if required...Enjoy your Cruise, your lined up for a brilliant experience, you'll love it, and I guarentee you'll be back for more.......RYC Crewe Cheshire.

Thank you very much for your kind reply to my question Re: Hotel Accomodation. Will take up your advice I am sure it will help knowing you have had experience before. Wishing you a good holiday in August. I am sure (Finances Permitting) we will be looking towards another Cruise after this one.

There have been a number o...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
