Wanted to get your suggestions on how early I could safely schedule a return fligh from Heathrow or Gatwick taking into account the time I would actually disembark from the cruise ship and travel to either of the above mentioned airports. I was thinking of taking a train from the port to London.
A lot of the cruise lines sailing into Southampton/Dover have private coaches at a nominal fee back to Gatwick Airport! You can book in advance, or book on board!
