We will be boarding the Queen Mary 2 on August 27 for a cruises to New York. We are spending a week or so in Scotland prior to the trip and plan on flying to London on the 26th. So, a few questions: 1. Where to stay? Will probably take a morning flight to London. By the time we get thru the airport, I imagine we really won't have a lot of time to do any sightseeing in London. No problem - been there a few times before. But the question is should we stay in London or should we think of staying closer to where the ship leaves from. 2. What airport? I guess that's based on the answer to the above. Seems LCY would be a good choice if staying in town while the others would be best if going straight to Southampton area. 3. How to get there? Taxi from airport to London is easy. Any ideas how best to get to Southampton? We'll have a bit of luggage so would prefer not shlepping through trains and buses. Thanks for any insights you can provide.
