Luggage Storage in Southampton Before Cruise

We complete our cruise to Norway in Southampton and 2 days later will board again for Iceland after we spend 2 nights in Paris. We have 2 large bags which we do not wish to take with us on our trip to Paris. Celebrity Eclipse say they have no ability to store the luggage and the cruise port does not have storage facilities such as is done at the Southampton Airport. We arrive early on a Sunday morning and leave for London to catch the Eurostar to Paris, but the storage facilities in town (Oceans, Pack N Send, Lock N Store) do not open till 10:00 am on Sunday. Swissport at the Southampton Airport (6 pounds per bag per day) opens at 6:00 am , but we were hoping to find something closer to the ship. Any thoughts? Thanks,.

I did mention a low cost storage option for Lock'n Store Southampton, and it is about 2 km to the cruise terminal They have lockers that hold luggage. Minimum contract is for one week and the rental is £10.00 for the week plus £2.50 for the minimum £2000 insurance cover. Refundable security deposit of £10.00. Open 10am to 2pm on Sunday and from 8.30am to 6pm other days. Address is Third Avenue, Millbrook, Southampton SO15 0JX.

The only other Southampton based luggage storage is, or used to be, the Grand Harbour hotel - I am not sure if they still offer the service.

Otherwise you are probably stuck with taking your luggage to London with you and using a left luggage facility in London - there are facilities at both Waterloo and St Pancras stations http://www.left-baggage.co.uk/index/locations and Victoria coach station

Thank you for the kind reply. You suggestions are good ones for most passengers.

There are several luggage storage facilities in the vicinity if the pier; however inasmuch as we are arriving on a Sunday morning, they are all closed. We were hoping for luggage storage open and in the area when we disembark. Since we are flying back to Southampton airport, we will leave our luggage there.

Overall, it has been a delightful cruise to Norway with many charming Brits. We look forward to the follow-on to Iceland. WWP

If you are taking the train to London then that train will stop at the airport. I would just get off the train, drop off the baggage and continue on the next train - and the same in reverse on the way back. It's a one-minute walk from the station to the airport (make that two minutes for the London-bound platform as you will have to cross to the other side).

I think that's by far your easiest option. No detour at all, as you're going that way anyway.

Dear Aviatrix,

That is an excellent suggestion if we were taking the train from Southampton to London. We will be taking a car to London, so we shall drop the luggage at the Southampton Airport as you suggest, and then we will collect in upon our return on Tuesday to the airport.

I appreciate your thoughtful, expeditious reply. You Brits are oh so thoughtful and helpful.

Cheers.
