  1. Having problems in getting posts to my post. Maybe send to me directly dbertentha@aol.com.
  2. We changed our pre night plans. We are staying 2 nights in Southampton at a Airbnb apartment near the town center. We now are looking to share a 4 passenger Taxi from Heathrow Airport on May 30 to Southampton. I have a price of 145 pounds from Heathrow on May 30 in the morning (arrive at 6 AM). and 135 pounds from the port to Heathrow on June 15. We depart Heathrow at 2 PM. If you are interested in sharing the cost, let me know as soon as possible.
  3. Thanks JB! I agree with the comments you made but I was disturbed by looking at other comments and links that most of Southampton hotels downtown area was booked solid. I am on the wait list for Princess hotels but do not anticipate any changes close to our ship departure. The Airbnb booking was easy and got confirmation emails from the owner immediately. So I am confident with it unless something happens that I could not anticipate. Thanks for your help in my matter. Lookong forward to the trip. I booked air from Princess and have to verify if free transfer is allotted to the air booking. As my sister-in-law liked White Taxi group for the her tour of Southampton and the transfers to/from Heathrow, I will verify with Princess tomorrow. Then I can go on to tours booking. Then on our way!
  4. Booked a room thru Airbnb at 301 Portcullis Apartments. Had problem with BOOKING with credit card verification. not with Airbnb. Thanks for your suggestions. Waiting for White Taxi to contact me about transfer and tours in Southampton. My sister-in-lw used the, and highly recommend them.
  5. We did see London a couple of times. But i am told Southampton has several sites that are interesting and do not know if we ever will get back, but know we will back to London. And staying near the port, gives us the benefit of not having to take over 90 plus minutes getting to the ship. Feel less hassle before starting out on a relaxing cruise adventure. But I have not dismissed it yet. Trying to find a hotel room close to the port may be difficult right now.
  6. Thanks. The closes HI is booked . Have to take the next one. My sister-in-law gave me a name of a tour service in Southampton that might be helpful with the transfers and tour of the area. Waiting for a reply from them. Mention was the Titanic exhibit as very good.
  7. We are looking for a hotel near the Princess Port or downtown Southampton for 2 days before Princess Sapphire cruise on June 1 Nights are May 30 and 31. Cruise departs June1.

Sp now scrambling for a hotel that is affordable and close to the port. Fly into Heathrow from US May 30 at 6AM. Looking for soe leads! Any recommendations?
  8. We need to book a transfer from hotel (in Kensington) to Princess Sapphire in Southampton on June 1, 2019. Any suggestions on transfers or share a ride?
