We're cruising on the Golden PrincessJuly 1 and will be flying into Healthrow one day early. Any advice on good reliable transportation to a hotel near the port (no trains please, bad backs and luggage do not go well together) and a clean nice hotel to stay in night before cruise in or near Southampton?
Oh boy! That is going to be costly without using the train. YOu might look into some sort of shuttle or bus that you can book with to take you there as Southhampton and Heathrow are a long way from each other. As for the hotel, the best I can advise you on that is to go to www.hotels.com and fill in Southampton and see what is available in your price range. Just about all websites use the same search engine so you can either book through one of the websites or possibly e-mail or contact the hotel directly and see if you can work a better deal.
