Set sail on calm waters by letting Cruise Parking take the stress out of parking at Southampton Port. With just a 20-minute transfer from car park to cruise terminal, it makes the ideal solution for those looking for fast and affordable parking at Southampton Port.

Why choose Cruise Parking

Located just 10 minutes from the motorway network, you'll dodge the traffic and have the reassurance of a guaranteed parking space waiting for your arrival.

Using the service couldn't be easier, too. Just drive straight the car park, where you'll be met by a member of Cruise Parking staff who'll park your car while you jump on the shuttle bus and head straight to the cruise terminal. On your return, a Cruise Parking representative will show you to the transfer buss ready to take you straight back you your car.

Passengers who are flying out to meet a cruise, or returning via air travel, will receive free transfers to Southampton Airport.

Don't worry about your car while cruising, either. As you're exploring the oceans, Cruise Parking will be caring for your vehicle in its fully secured car park with CCTV coverage, security fencing and regular patrols throughout the day. The facility is also a police-approved Park Mark Safer Parking Award holder.

Staff very friendly even though it was very busy as there was a lot of cruise ships in on the day we embarked. Buses were there at the port on disembarkation.
Road up to Cruise Park was in very poor condition

Efficient service on arrival; minimal paperwork; reasonable transfer times; easy to find the coach on our return; efficient despatch.
Due to its being parked for nearly 2 weeks, my car's windscreen was coated in what I assume was a salty film - which did not clean off easily (my washers are usually very efficient) and caused a few visibility problems in the low sun. A quick "slosh-over" facility would be useful.

Good organised delivery of vehicle and quick transfer to ship . Driver very obliging and did all the lifting work.
Driver as before very obliging and did all lifting of luggage etc .However, a crowd of people ,at least 50 , had to wait in very cold conditions for the transport , even the APH rep at the port was embarassed at the delay . Not a good way to end a cruise holiday .

The coach was waiting for us as soon as we got off the ship.
When we got on the coach to go to the ship , we were on it nearly an hour waiting for it to fill up and the majority of people were going on another ship. We thought perhaps a transit type van would have been better!!
