Cruises From Southampton

When you consider the hassle-free nature of cruising from British shores – no lengthy security checks, no luggage restrictions and car parks at almost every port – it should come as no surprise to find that more people than ever are choosing to sail from the UK. Last year 912,000 travellers – accounting for nearly half the number of UK cruisers at 1.9 million – embarked on “no-fly” cruise holidays according to cruise industry body Clia UK & Ireland.

Cruise lines: P&O Cruises, Cunard and Fred Olsen Cruise Lines base ships here year-round, while Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises have ships here during the summer. New for this summer is NCL’s Norwegian Jade. Saga Cruises also has regular departures and other sailings are offered by lines including Silversea, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises and MSC Cruises.

Sailing to: mainly Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic to New York. World cruises also depart from Southampton.
