Meet and greet service is only added to all airports and it is an additional £25.

The cruise company will give priority to passengers who have to catch flights at the airports. However, you should be able to select what time you would like to come off the ship, therefore if you wish to disembark the ship by 8 am, it will be arranged for you to have your luggage and to be off the ship by 8 am. Pickup time needs to be confirmed when making a booking, this can be changed at a later date but we require a minimum of 48 hours' notice, due to vehicle availability on cruise days. Disembarkation time can only be arranged with the Cruise company once you are on board the ship. You can either inform the Cruise company on what time you would like to come off or they will advise you 2 days before arriving back in port.

On the day of the service, it is unlikely that we are able to send the driver earlier than your schedule pick up time. A safer option is to book a pick-up time for 8:30 a.m, as we include 30 minutes of free waiting time from the set pick-up time. Generally, it takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes to disembark a ship from the disembarkation time that has been provided to you by the ship. There are no customs or passport checks on disembarking a ship in Southampton as this is done before arriving back in port. The only shit that allows you to stay later than 9:00 am is the Queen Mary 2, and some smaller ships if travelling in the upper-class section. They have to turn around the ship quickly because the first boarding time is at 11:00 a.m. Due to the high demand for the service on cruise arrival days, we require a minimum of 48 hours notice from the travel date to adjust the driver's schedule.
