Avoid the Airports - Cruise from Southampton

As the UK's largest passenger cruise port, Southampton has a host of different cruise options, from short trips across the channel to France, Trans-Atlantic voyages to New York, to lengthy cruises to the Middle-East and beyond. Here's an overview of some current cruises from Southampton.

One of P&O's most popular cruises is the epic 45 night voyage from San Francisco to Southampton. This journey travels up the west coast of the U.S. and Canada to take in the stunning mountains and glaciers of Alaska, before visiting Los Angeles and Mexico, passing through the famed Panama Canal to Honduras, Orlando, New York and Portugal. This 2012 cruise costs from £2499 per person for an inside berth and uses the lavish and comfortable Arcadia ship.

For something a bit more modest, how about sailing from Southampton to the Mediterranean? P&O offer round-trip voyages that take in cities such as Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, Alicante and Gibraltar. Prices for this trip start from around £1379 per person.

Other cruise liners that uses Southampton as a port include Royal Caribbean, and their Spain and Canary Islands cruise. It is an 11 night voyage that takes in ports such as Vigo, Lisbon, Funchal and Tenerife. This is a great way to get some sun without having to take a flight, and on board the impressive Independence of the Seas ship you will never get bored.

The many cruises Southampton can offer let you take in a variety of destinations via a comfortable and stress-free method of travelling. And as cruises look after all your travel and accommodation needs, they often work out to be cheaper, pound for pound, than going for the more traditional flight and hotel route.
