What time does the ship leave port?

From Southampton

The ship will depart Southampton for sailing in the late afternoon (approximately 16:00 - 17:00). Specific departure times will be confirmed once guests are on board.

Guests should ensure they check in as per the time provided on their Boarding Pass to ensure they are on board to attend a safety drill which is carried out prior to departure.

There are recommended arrival times stated on the Boarding Pass, which not only help to avoid congestion at the terminal but also ensures that everyone has time to check in and embark the ship and locate their cabin prior to departure. The time that check in closes is also stated on the Boarding Pass and travel summary documents, which are available from the My P&O Cruises approximately 21 days prior to departure.

From ports of call

The departure time will depend on your itinerary. Specific departure times will be confirmed once guests are on board. 

Typically, the ship docks to allow either a full day (from approximately 08:00 - 16:00) or half a day (approximately 08:00 - 13:00 / 13:00 - 16:00) in the port. An 'early evening' departure can be between 17:00 - 19:00.

These are approximate timings, you may have a shorter or longer duration in port.
