My wife and I are cruising on the Ventura to Norway on May 13th, and it is our first P & O cruise, and our first cruise departing from Southampton. Three questions:
1. We are booking a suite on the A deck, aft. and we're wondering about any issues with the pool directly above.
2. We'll be coming to the port from a wedding in Malvern, England, and will likely take a train to the port Sunday morning. How close to the pier is the train station?
3. What amount of time should we allow for disembarkation and transfer to Heathrow on the 20th?
1 wouldn't have thought that the pool would be that big an issue but you may hear some of the sun loungers being moved about.
2 from Southampton train station to port is no more than £10 taxi I would say ( probably less) depending on the time of day. There is likely to be taxis just outside the train station.
3 cant help on this one as never done it sorry
