I took the Supershuttle to get there since it left me at the hotel door unlike the Skybus which has specific stops along major streets.
  2. e were there in Dec. Many people from the ship went into Christchurch from Akaroa. We wanted to take a Black Cat Harbor cruise so we stayed in Akaroa to see the Hector dolphins.

  6. We are taking our first P&O cruise in April. The Britannia is due to dock at 6 AM in Southampton. I need to make a bus reservation so I would appreciate knowing approximately what time can we expect to be off the ship? Thank you
