A wonderful combination greets you on this fully guided cruise transfer from Southampton to London and Heathrow. We blend the refined elegance and Roman history of the city of Bath with Royal Windsor, home to the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world and the setting for the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
This cruise transfer is available on all dates when Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Oceania, NCL, Celebrity, Princess and Disney (New for 2023) cruise ships are visiting Southampton. Service also available to passengers on other ships not listed when dates and arrival times coincide with ships listed. Please note you will need to make your own way to the ship we are servicing on that date.
After meeting up with your friendly team of driver and knowledgeable tour guide in Southampton, we begin our journey into limestone country with gently rolling hills and honey-coloured cottages. We edge westwards into the Mendip Hills down the valley road into Bath, a city that has welcomed tourists for over two thousand years owing to its hot thermal springs that attracted both Celtic Kings and a while later, Roman aristocracy. On arrival, you will have the option of taking a short walking tour, or entry to the Roman Baths, a testament to the cult of Sulis Minerva, both a God of healing and of the underworld. Walk along the original Roman paving, admire the steaming baths and see the ruins of the temple.

From Bath we drive towards Heathrow and London making our next stop in Royal Windsor. Over 900 years of Royal history await you at the majestic Windsor Castle, said to be the favourite home of the current King. After a short walking tour in Windsor, you will have the option of entering the Castle where you can see the state apartments and the Royal Chapel of St.George. The town of Windsor itself sits alongside the River Thames with royal parks, traditional shops and typical English pubs, making it one of England’s most popular destinations.
From Windsor you will then be transferred to your chosen destination of Heathrow airport, Heathrow hotels or central London hotels.
Please note for 2023 Windsor Castle is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and it can also be subject to last minute closures. As such, entry to the Castle is not automatically included on our day trip. On days when the Castle is open the guide will take you to the Castle entry. If you intend on visiting the Castle we strongly recommend booking your tickets in advance to guarantee entry.
Nearly all cruises at Southampton arrive between 05:00am and 06:00am in the morning, with disembarkation starting around 07:00am. Your driver will meet you at the terminal building exit from 08:00am. Your driver will be holding a sign and will accompany you the car. We plan to leave Southampton by 08:30am. There are 4 cruise terminals at Southampton, all slightly different but you will have a typical walk of about 75 yards to the vehicle where the driver will load your luggage into the hold. In the unlikely event your ship is delayed into port, we will delay our departure time accordingly (applicable only to the listed ships we service). For all delayed ship arrivals we will aim to leave at the latest one hour after docking (earlier if possible).

We depart Windsor at 4:30pm and drop at Heathrow hotels and terminals 5:15pm – 5:45pm subject to traffic, arriving in Central London 6:00pm – 6:30pm.
