Southampton is the undisputed king of ex-UK cruise. The south coast city has more departures than all other British ports combined. You can do everything, from start your 100-day-plus world cruise here or hop on a short mini-break. It has everything, from adult-only small ships to family-friendly mega liners. We’ve picked six cruises departing Southampton to give you a small taste of what is on offer.

Cruise Adviser top tip
Just beware that because Southampton is so big it has more than one terminal — and they are not next door to one another either. Check before you leave to avoid tears at the port!
