Cruise Terminal
N/A N/A

One of Southampton’s many busy terminals, QEII has a range of amenities on offer to make your departure or arrival as quick and painless as possible. The terminal has been the subject of more than £5m worth of refurbishments, including the installation of a state-of-the-art ship-to-shore walkway, ensuring a greater range of cruise ships can utilise the terminal, improving passenger flow and experience.

Getting Here

The terminal can be found off the A33, Platform Road in the Eastern Docks. By car, getting there is easy; just follow signage for Dock Gate 4, making sure to leave yourself extra time as traffic can get heavy during peak time.

By rail Southampton Central is the nearest station. Around 2 miles from the terminal, a free bus does run between the station and Town Quay, but it’s still around a 15-20 minute walk – perhaps not so practical if you have a fair bit of luggage with you. Catching a taxi is the easiest option, as these can be found either side of the train station. It should cost around £6 - £7 (slightly higher over weekends and bank holidays) however luggage shouldn’t cost any extra.

Private hire taxis can be booked by calling WestQuay Cars on 023 8099 9999

The nearest airport is Southampton. While taxi’s are the quickest route to the port if you are flying in, trains to Southampton Airport Parkway, around a 5 minute walk from the airport, run frequently.

Arrival

For those arriving in Southampton, there is an arrivals lounge with comfortable seating. Open to the public, this offers the opportunity for friends and family coming to meet you and wait inside in relative comfort.

Facilities in arrivals include standard and disabled access toilets, vending machines offering a limited range of drinks and snacks, as well as a magazine stand offering a range of complimentary magazines. Copies of Map & Guide to Southampton can also be found here – great for seeing what’s in walking distance as well as what’s on offer in the city.

Departures

A large covered area for drop-off and luggage can be found near the terminal. If you are catching a taxi, or a family member is dropping you off, porters will help you with your luggage as you alight here. If you are parking, just head back here once you have parked. Staff will direct you where needed.

Grabbing a bite to eat

Café Ceanos operate in both the departures and arrivals at the QEII Cruise Terminal. Offering snacks, tea’s, coffees and alcohol for departing passengers, and fresh teas and coffees available at arrivals for all to enjoy.

Where to Park

A short stay pay and display car park is available opposite the terminal. Disabled bays, near the terminal entrance, must be booked in advance through ABP. Long stay parking can be found on-site, however it’s not available to purchase on the day; make sure to book in advance, as spaces can fill up during peak time.

Check-In

After you’ve dropped your luggage off with the porters (making sure to keep any hand luggage, tickets and passports with you) head into the terminal for Check-in. Staff should be on hand to direct you.

Once checked-in, you will need to go through security before heading on through to the departure lounge.

Southampton Ocean Cruise Terminal Berth 46/47:

One of Southampton's busiest terminals, Ocean has a host of amenities to make your time there as straightforward and comfortable as possible.

Getting Here:

Travelling by car, getting there is easy. Just off the A33, Platform Road head for Dock Gate 4. Make sure to leave an extra 5-10 minutes, as traffic can get heavy during peak time.

By rail - Southampton Central is the closest train station, approximately 2 miles from Ocean Terminal. While a free bus runs between Town Quay and the station, it does stop a good 15-20 minute walk away.

Fully licensed taxi ranks are available either side of the station, with plenty of clearly designated areas for pre-booked taxis to wait. It should cost around £6 - £7, but may cost more on weekends and bank holidays. Luggage shouldn't cost any extra.

The nearest airport is Southampton. Taxi's are the quickest route to the Port if you are flying in, however trains are also frequent and fairly cheap.

Dropping Off Your Luggage:

There's no need to worry if you're unsure; with clear signage and staff on hand, every step of the way has been thoroughly thought out. As you approach the terminal, to your left is the baggage handling area. Drop-off is located adjacent. Porters are quick to help with your luggage. If parking, you will need to bring your luggage over to this area yourself.

Where to Park:

Short stay parking, located just behind the coach bays, is to your right as you face the terminal. Starting at £1 per hour, prices rise to £10 for 24 hours. A lost of damaged ticket will set you back a whopping £100, so make sure to keep it safe.

Long stay parking is situated behind the short stay car park. It's not available on the day, so don't leave booking a space until the last moment. Your travel agent or cruise operator should be able to book this for you.

A Quick Note for Smokers:

The terminal is No Smoking throughout. As you approach the terminal from the car parks, the designated smoking area is just in front of you, to the right hand side. Remember to use the bin provided, as littering in the UK has an £80 on the spot fine.

Heading In To the Terminal:

Things can look a little hectic when you first arrive. Two large doors frame the front of the building. Both sets lead into the same reception area, so there’s no need to worry about entering the wrong end. Seating for 100-150 is located downstairs. If you are waiting for a family member or friend to park, it’s a good idea to take a few minutes to wait and relax down here.

What to do Whilst Waiting:

A large magazine stand can be found in the window. Filled with a wide range of high-quality glossy magazines, these are complimentary, with issues changing throughout the year. A Map & Guide to the city is also available from here. It is located just before you exit through the door on the left.

Travel agents set up information stands downstairs for some cruises. They're not always there, but terminal staff are usually easy to spot and are always helpful.
