Cruises Terminals Southampton Port

In 1840 the first P&O passenger vessel sailed into Southampton and marked the start of what was to become the cruise capital of the UK. Today increasing numbers of ships are calling into Southampton with over 450 cruise calls.

There are four cruise terminals in Southampton:

Queen Elizabeth II Terminal berths 38/39, Mayflower Terminal b 106, City Terminal, b 101, Ocean Terminal, b 46

Southampton cruise terminals play host to a wide variety of cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Cunard Cruises, Fred. Olsen and MSC Cruises.

Associated British Ports (DHB) have invested over £40 million in its four dedicated cruise terminals and surrounding infrastructure. Taking a cruise means no waiting around at busy airports, no confusing restrictions on hand baggage, unlimited cabin baggage and your holiday starts as soon as you arrive in Southampton.

Park, stay and cruise packages are offered by a wide range of hotels across the city as well as the surrounding area, enabling visitors to stay in the city before or after their cruise whilst allowing parking and assisting with travel arrangements to and from the cruise terminals.
