Q. What can I expect when I join the ship?


Great service begins the minute you arrive in Southampton with porters waiting to take your luggage before you even check-in, you can bring as much luggage as you like when sailing from Southampton, just make sure each piece of luggage weighs no more than 23kg.

After check in, enjoy a warm welcome on-board from the ship’s company. Once ready, you’ll meet your cabin steward who will be on hand throughout your trip.

If you’re travelling in a suite, your butler will make sure your holiday is stress free by organising everything from bag packing to cocktail parties. Following a short safety briefing, toast the start of your holiday with a glass of something sparkling at the Champagne sailaway.
