What time does the ship leave port?

From Southampton

The ship will depart Southampton for sailing in the late afternoon. . 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, guests will be required to scan in at their assigned muster station when they get onboard then watch the safety video in their cabin prior to departure.

The guests arrival time to the cruise terminal is stated on their Boarding Pass and we would ask guests to adhere to these times allocated, which not only helps to avoid congestion at the terminal but also ensures that everyone has time to check-in, embark the ship and locate their stateroom prior to departure. The time that check in closes is also stated on the tickets and travel summary documents, which are available from the My Cunard 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 and should only be given as a guide.
