Default debarkation in Southampton, England

Hi all,

Just a quick question. My husband and I are taking the QM2 transatlantic voyage from NYC to Southampton. I am a Canadian citizen. I see that Cunard requires you have all necessary visas before you go. Do I need to obtain a visa before I get to England as a tourist? Or will there be border control there to give me one - like in the airport?

A visa is not required for Canadian citizens to visit the UK. Unless you are staying for longer than six months you are fine with just your passport.

Take care,
Mike

Yep me too, trouble is those who live here often know less about tourist & visitor stuff that visitors themselves.
