Default Transfers from Southampton to London/Paris

We are arriving on the Queen Mary 2 April 22 and are heading over to Paris right away. We don't want the direct Flybe flight as it's in the evening and we'd waste a whole day in SH. A private car to London is about $190, which is more than we want to pay. We are torn as to whether we shoulld take a flight from Heathrow or the Eurostar. Surprisingly the Eurostar is labout the same cost as the flight and we have taken it before so we are leaning toward the flight. The only reason we are still considering the train is because it gets us into the city center rather than the airport.
Any advice or suggestions for other reasonably-priced options is appreciated.
Thanks!

Don't forget there is an airport in Southampton, which offers direct service to Paris. We use Air France's morning flight (departs about 9 a.m., but avoid Sunday flights, which are too expensive. Get off the shiop early and grab a cab in the bterminal to get to the airport within half hour.
