Southampton is one of Northern Europe's busiest cruise ports

Southampton Cruise Terminals are one of the busiest in the country. Spread along the West and East Docks, terminals are served by a wealth of cruise friendly accommodation in the city. In Cruise village itself, directly around terminals sit quality chain and independent hotels just minutes from departure points. The many B&Bs, apartments and hotels around the city centre are equally perfect for pre-cruise stays, just a quick taxi ride or B&B transfer service away from Western and Eastern Docks.

With its year round cruise timetable, Southampton accommodation caters exceptionally well for cruise travellers. One night pre-cruise stays are warmly welcomed across B&Bs and hotels. Additional services including park and cruise deals, transfer to cruise terminals and Central Station pick-up are available along with ‘Cruise & Stay’ packages in many city hotels. You’ll also find a good choice of hotels offering park, stay and fly packages.

Super stylish new apartments and hotels are increasingly appearing at Ocean Village, Southampton's premier waterfront complex just east of the Cruise Terminals.
