Cruise Parking welcomes bookings from disabled passengers. Please call their office after you've made your booking to discuss your requirements. Vehicles of all sizes are welcome. However, there is a surcharge of £2 per day for vehicles longer than five metres, including vans, camper vans and cars with trailers.

Each booking entitles the return transfer of four passengers between the car park and cruise terminals. Each additional passenger will incur a £10.00 transfer supplement payable at time of arrival. Bookings can be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to departure subject to a £10 administration fee. Arrival at the car park less than two hours prior to vessel sailing may result in bus transfer refusal.

Efficient service from car park to ship.

wallington GB
Staff polite
Minibus crowded and not easy to get in and out. Lot hanging about both going to, and returning from the ship.
Probably prefer to park at quayside another time and pay the extra.

Telford GB
Well organised. Once parked did not take long to get on coach and get to terminal. Coach waiting for us when we disembarked despite change of terminal from that originally proposed. Drivers friendly and helpful.
Could do with better signage to site. Had long wait to get booked into site as only one booking cabin and person despite large number of people turning up at same time due to ships embarkation time being the same. Need more personnel booking in to ease congestion getting onto site.

Very good service with very helpful staff.
It could be stressed that APH utililise the services of Cuiseparking ltd when parking at Southampton as this is confusing when trying to find the actual car park.
