How it works
Available Now for 2021. Most popular with couples making independent travel arrangements. You will be sharing a large minivan with two other couples sailing on the same cruise. Our agility allows us to offer pickup and drop off at your own hotel. No schlepping! No luggage limit!
This service runs to a strict time-table set by Silver Fleet . You cannot request a specific pickup time.
Pickups going to Southampton start 09:00am, and we're on the road to the Port by 10:00am
Departure time from Ship is 09:30am. Please seek to be off yoru ship by 09:00am as we often get to leave early.
To your Ship
You will be sharing a large minivan with 2 other couples travelling to same port. A few days before travel, we close the books and set pick up order. Starting 09:00am at the hotel farthest from Southampton. Working towards your ship all the time, we plan the timings of the remaining two pickups. 24 hours early, we email you your planned pickup time - so you know when to expect your driver. On the day, your driver will be at your door +/- 10 minutes on your planned time.
Tip; If you stay near Tower Bridge, you will be in the van first (at about 09:00am) and for the longest time. If you stay in Kensington or near Heathrow Airport, you will be final pickup (at about 10:00am) and be in the van the shortest time.
We will know where your ship is berthed at Southampton. We drop you off right at the ship, where the porters take your luggage. We plan to arrive at your ship by 11:45am. This timing is not negotiable. If you have a later boarding time issued by your cruise line, they will still check you in early.
From your Ship
You will be sharing a large minivan with 2 other couples off the same ship - all with same meeting instructions. Please seek to be off your ship by 09:00am, we depart at 09:30am (and sometimes earlier if everyone is off the ship and ready to go). Look for your driver baring a SILVER FLEET sign near to the exit doors of the cruise terminal. Do not go looking for driver in the parking lot or taxi drop off place or anywhere further than 30 feet from the terminal doors.
With multiple vans scheduled from each ship, we plan our groupings ahead of time so that each van makes drops in a close vicinity in London - minimizing the travel time for all.
Heathrow Airport is on the road to London and is always our first drop off place - by about 11:30am.
We will drop you off right at the door of your hotel, or private address in central London. Or at the correct flight terminal at Heathrow Airport for your airline. There is no kerbside luggage check at Heathrow but the carts are free.
