Bromsgrove GB
Cruise parking in Southampton was easy to find. We handed our car keys to the representative. A friendly driver loaded our cases and onto the minibus and took us to the docks. On our return a few days later, a minibus was waiting and once more the cases were loaded for us. As soon as we arrived at the car park our keys were immediatelyhanded back to us and we were shown where our car was parked. It couldn't have been simpler.
We had a bit of of a wait in the minibus whilst they waited for more passengers, they could do with running a little more frequently.

Derby GB Satisfied repeat customer
Its very easy. We met people who had arranged parking at the dockside near the ship and they were queuing for an hour. We didn't queue at all. When we disembarked the minibus was there to meet us.
