Default Are we being picky

Just looking to see what other people think on the following. we are doing a Baltic cruise on the Splendor out of Dover. we decided to go to London a few days prior to the cruise. We are staying at a hotel that apprently Carnival uses but we have been told they will not pick us there to transfer to the ship. we have to get back to Heathrow airport. even though we obviously booked the cruise and flight with which includes transfer to and from the ship with them. I just don't see the problem any thoughts on this

The reason is probably traffic. London is notoriously difficult to get around in. I watch Top Gear and t hey did a challenge to see how fast it would take to get from A to B in a car and by running/subway/bike. The runner and bike and subway beat the car. The one episode that included the running it wasn't even a full marathon, it was more like 10K through London. The runner made it with LOTS of time to spare and the car was stuck in jam after jam and light after light, and it wasn't rush hour!!!!

I gotta go where it's warm.....
