Don't worry about your car while cruising, either.

Good friendly service
Fairly expensive. Large coach rather than minibus picked us up at end of holiday so had to wait a while for it to fill up.

Post code is not ideal. fed into sat nav, it takes you into MOD property. An extra sign or two on approach could overcome this problem.

Transport to and from the docks was waiting for us.
We were given help with our luggage so that once we reached the car park we did not handle it again until we were in our cabin.

On arrival at the car park our details were taken without having to leave our vehicle.
Our cases were placed on the bus by the driver, we did not see these again until we arrived in our cabin.
On our return the representative and driver were cheerful and chatty even though we were the final group to return on a bitterly cold morning. Thank you
Disappointed in the cost of the parking. I could have parked for half the price at APH Manchester airport. However the charges were more favourable than the parking offered by the cruise company.

Worked o k when we went.
Too far away and to wait a long time in the cold and could have been wet for the pick up. It wasn't our fault that there was a match causing traffic. Then a mini bus and trailor came and were told a bus for the rest waiting, some of them children in short sleeve t shirts. That was their fault of course that they were not wrapped up.

The drivers of the transport minibuses were polite, helpful and safe. My car was in the same condition when I collected it from the site at Cracknore Hard, Marchwood near Southampton.
The cost for the two weeks was reasonable.
In the past I have either used CPS or an APH affiliated car park adjacent to the cruise terminal. Whilst these are more expensive particularly CPS, with a large amount of luggage i.e. six items and a slightly immobile wife I think that in future I will revert to the alternatives mentioned. Incidentally the last time I used CPS my car was damaged and this took many months to resolve hence my change to APH.
