Q. What time can I expect to disembark the ship in Southampton?

On average, it takes approximately 2 hours to have all luggage landed and the ship cleared by Customs before you will be invited to disembark. Disembarkation is staggered and normally begins at approximately 8.45am, you will be advised of your allocated time to disembark approximately a day before arrival. If however, you require / prefer to disembark early / at a particular time please speak to reception as soon as possible once you are on board. 

If you elect to carry off your own luggage, disembarkation usually starts at 7.30am, this time is dependent on when the ship clears Customs.

Although we cannot guarantee that you will be able to disembark at your preferred time, the ship will do whatever they can to accommodate your request.

Disembarkation is normally completed by 10.15am, however, this can vary.
