Hi,

Its about 20 miles from the airport to the cruise ship. Your best option is to pre-book a taxi from Aquacars based in Portsmouth at a cost of £27.

An airport taxi would cost around £40 so pre-booking would save you some money. You could ring them during office hours ask for Sue in airport bookings, 02392654321

Southampton airport parkway station is adjacent to to the terminal and you can get a train to Portsmouth harbour for £8.50 single but you would need to change at Southampton Central and it would take 1:12 compared to about 30 minutes by taxi.

Nearby to where in Southampton?

The Holiday Inn is close to the docks and city centre and gets reasonable reviews. There is a Premier Inn at the Airport and numerous other hotels in the City and vicinity.

If you get the train, you will still need to get a taxi to the ferry port at about £5/£7
