Make the most out of your time in England, and combine your cruise transfer from London to Southampton cruise terminals with a visit to Windsor Castle. This service is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Oceania, NCL, Celebrity, Princess & Disney (New for 2023) cruise ships are visiting Southampton. This service is also available to passengers on other ships, when dates and arrival times coincide with ships listed.
You will be driven in an air conditioned touring coach from London to Southampton Cruise Terminals, via the world famous Windsor Castle.
After pick up from your London or Heathrow address, we will make our way to Windsor Castle, where over 900 years of royal history await you. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest continuously occupied castle in the world and official home of our present King, Charles III. Here, you will have a chance to visit the lavish state apartments, the Grand Reception Room and the Royal Chapel of St George, which serves as the resting place of many of our Kings and Queens, and also provided the setting for the 2018 royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
After our visit to Windsor Castle, we begin the journey to Southampton, a journey of approximately 90 – 120 minutes. When we arrive in Southampton, you will walk straight to the check in desk. Porters will take care of your luggage, ensuring it is delivered to your cabin. Please make sure you use the luggage label in your cruise pack to facilitate this. We plan to drop you at your cruise terminal between 1:30pm – 2:00pm.
Please note Windsor Castle will be closed on Tuesdays & Wednesdays throughout 2023 and as such this tour will not be available.
We offer pick up from select London city center hotels and Heathrow Airport hotels. Your pick up time will be confirmed at time of booking.
London city centre pick ups begin at 07:00am and are completed by 08:15am. We will then collect from Heathrow airport hotels between 09:00am – 09:45am. For Heathrow pick ups you must be ready and waiting in the hotel reception area from 09:00am. We are unable to collect from Heathrow airport terminals.
We recommend you are ready for collection in the hotel reception area, 10 minutes prior to the stated pick up time on your ticket. On departure from London, you may be collected by the main coach, or one of our smaller vehicles may transfer you to the coach. This is to ensure we complete the pickups as quickly and efficiently as possible. Your driver will meet you inside your hotel lobby and will then assist you with your luggage.
On a small number of occasions, due to road closures or events, we may alter the route/timings to ensure prompt arrival at the cruise terminal. If we do amend the timings we will contact you in advance. We strongly recommend checking your emails prior to your departure in case we have contacted you with a pick up time amendment.
Arrival at Southampton
There are four cruise terminals at Southampton. In normal circumstances the coach will take around 90 – 120 minutes to travel from Windsor to Southampton, arriving between 1:30pm and 2:00pm. At Southampton you will step off the coach and walk straight to the check-in desk. Porters will take care of your luggage, ensuring it is delivered directly to your cabin. Make sure you use the luggage label in your cruise pack to facilitate this.
Due to possible timed embarkation procedures for 2023 it may be necessary to amend slightly the advertised timings. This is to ensure guests arrive at the cruise terminal at their allocated embarkation time. If timed embarkation policies are introduced we will contact all customers prior to the date of your transfer to confirm your specific timings.
Pick ups in Central London begin at 07:00am and are completed by 08:15am. We will then collect from Heathrow airport accommodations between 09:00am – 09:45am. The journey to Windsor from Heathrow takes approximately 30 minutes. The journey will take approximately 90 – 120 minutes or slightly less to travel from Windsor to Southampton, arriving between 1:30pm and 2:00pm.
