Don't go anywhere near a inaugural, preview or pre and post dry cruises. Always problems which can ruin an expensive holiday.

No, you just walk over to the short stay car park across the road from the terminal. Normally just a 100 yds or so. You'd probably need to ring them and explain what you want. normally they just...
