  1. Thanks for your comments. My husband hates to travel, so if there is any confusion or difficulties it will be hard to get him on another vacation. I like to be prepared as much as possible as far ahead as possible to keep the anxiety and frustration to a minimum. I am still hoping for some first hand experience suggestions. We leave the U.S. on May 13th. Thanks again.
  2. Thank you for your comments. I too like to plan ahead as some of the excursions on the princess website are already sold out. We have not traveled this itinerary before, so these ports will be new for us.
  3. We will be taking the Regal Princess to the Bristish Isles in May 2024 and are wondering about the ports of call. We have not been to these ports and do not know where they are in relation to the city/village. Does anyone know if the ports are walkable or do you have to take a tour or transportarion to get to see anything or do anything? The ports are: Cork (Cobh) Dublin (Dun Laoghair) Belfast Holyhead Glasgow (Greenock) Orkney Islands (Kirk Edinburgh) Thank you! Chris P
  4. We are flying in to Heathrow the day before our cruise and I am thinking about spending the night in Southampton as opposed to spending the night at a Heathrow hotel and taking the cruise transportation to Southampton the next morning. I am not sure of the best, easiest, and most economical way to get to Southampton the night before. I read that the National Express bus will take us from Heathrow to Southampton bus station but then I am not sure how to get to our hotel (it doesn't have a shuttle). I also read that people had trouble getting a taxi from the Bus station in Southampton. We are considering the Moxy hotel in Southampton and (on the map) it looks like it might be walkable from the bus station, but since we won't get in to Southampton until early evening, I am not sure if it is safe to walk and if it is truly walkable with luggage. There are only 2 of us. We don't want to drive ourselves and the car services I have seen are really expensive. Does Southampton have Uber/Lyft? Do they work the same way they do in the U.S. (phone app)? Any thoughts or suggestions? Thank you! Chris
