I am going on the oriana from southampton and as far as i can see there only seems to be one car parking company there and its quite expensive. Does anyone know of any other car parks nearby or any hotels where you can leave your car and they will transfer you to the port.
When we sailed on Aurora about 18 months ago we were given details of parking from P&O. Then we went on a mini-cruise with Fred Olsen just before Christmas and that was a different firm, so maybe each cruise line makes its own arrangements because of security near the docks. My husband did all the sorting out so if you want any info pm me. Hotels near there include, Ibis, Novotel, Holiday Inn and also for the wealthy the De Vere Harbour. You could google 'hotels in S'hampton' and 'parking at S'hampton cruise terminals' P&O use The Mayflower terminal. Hope this helps.
Parents doing a QM2 so info may save me being the taxi.
Have just booked at Hiltons hotel. Ask for cruise package: B&B and 22 days car parking £170
If you go to page 4 of this cruises thread about half wy down the page there is some info on parking. Whichever firm you book with should have info as well.
This time we're with RCI. They use ABP whose website states you can drop of passengers and luggage at the terminal and then self park in the long term car park and either walk or get a shuttle bus back to the terminal, and because you self park you keep your keys on the cruise.
I wondered whether any holidaytruthers had experience of both? do CPS and ABP operate at different dock gate areas?
Does CPS always do valet parking?
There's not much difference in the price. Which one should we choose pease?
