Hi again Erik,

The train service down here (South West) does have some new trains, but also a lot of old rolling stock & it is purely luck (or lack of it) that determines which sort you end up with.

For the coach from London Victoria, allow up to 3 hours, and for the return trip to Heathrow, you are talking of up to 2 hours. Plus 15 minutes for the taxi at this end. So remember to build that into your flight time plans.

Also although it is listed on their website, I have NEVER seen a National Express coach at the cruise ship terminal, the one you are going to get will bring you into Coach Station, Harbour Parade.

Last Cruise: Royal Princess August 2015
Next: P&O Oriana October 2015
Then: Queen Victoria January 2016
