I am a bit reluctant to answer your question as I do not really know exactly how much the taxi would cost, however the airport is actually right on the City limits, so it should take no longer than about 20 minutes journey time. The M27/M271 motorway actually joins the two, and there is only one junction between them. Whether the driver would choose that route, or take the A roads, I wouldn't like to say! I would request him go the motorway route if possible, as I think the meter would be kinder to you that way, and there is less chance of him taking you on a "guide tour" of Southampton since you obviously don't know the area! The fare would not be that expensive if that is what you are worried about? If pushed I would guess at about £15. You will have to check as advised below if you are still concerned. Happy cruising.

Roughly 50 per day! OUCH!So in an effort to reduce the cost of this down, whilst bo...

The season of the mini cruise.

By Warwick Van Reenen

Warwick Van Reenen's blog

My first cruise was a mini cruise on the new Independence of the Seas in 2009. Well, she was new then! It was during a May bank holiday weekend and a 4 night to Cork and back.It was bank holiday weekend and the ship was filled to capacity. The volume of luggage being manhandled on board the vast family-friendly superliner at Southampton might have suggested we were all embarking on a world circumnavigation rather than a short sailing and this is another bonus of a cruise out of Southampton is...
