Remember that if you go by Cruise Connect it's their responsibility to get you to Southampton, even if it means that the ship has to wait, but if you go by rail you're on your own.
You are warned in the CC literature though, that it is your responsibility to have insurance cover in case there is a delay etc.
I don't know what would happen if something very serious happened but
you are told that the driver is in contact with the offices, who in turn are monitoring road conditions etc.
We found it really good- as Catherine says- no need to worry re luggage and a comfortable, quite speedy service from the North West.
I only breathe easily though, when I see 'Southampton' on the road signs and know that we are close enough to be shuttled there no matter what.
