Default Flowers

Does anyone have any recommendations for where to get flowers to bring on board in Southampton? It will be October and we will be staying at the Southampton Grand Harbour.

I love having fresh flowers on board.

I'd just go to Marks and Spencer in the West Quay shopping centre. They usually have a good selection and it's only a few minutes walk. As you're looking at the hotel with the port behind you, it's to the right, just beyond the Premier Inn

Forgot about Marks and Sparks, they normally do great flowers for a Department store.

I always keep a folding vase with the hydrating beads packed in my suit case. I usually have flowers in my cabin. Enjoy your cruise.
