You'll be required to make your own way to the port. If you arrive by car or train there'll be a shuttle bus running to the port.  You can also add car parking at the port, at the time of booking, or by calling 0871 230 2800, if you’ve already booked.  If you arrive by plane you can prebook a transfer from the airport to the port.  You can also pre book a coach transfer from various pick up points across the UK, to book please call intercruises on 0131 297 4391 quoting Marella Cruises or visit www.intercruises.com/marella/index.php/home.

If you’re arriving to Newcastle by train, you can reach the cruise terminal by taxi in around 20 minutes.  On embarkation days, there will be a free bus between Newcastle Central Station and the Port of Tyne, running every half an hour between 12noon and 2.30pm.  At the end of the cruise, the shuttle will run back to the station at 30 minute intervals between 7.30am and 9.30am.

For Southampton – depending on your dock gate – Southampton Central Station is between five and 15 minutes’ taxi ride away.  And taxis are available right outside the station.
