But there’s much more to do on the ship than just eat. There are 4 swimming pools, kids clubs for all ages, and you can spend your time playing basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, doing karaoke, or visiting the shows, casino, theatre, or one of the 9 whirlpools. The onboard currency is the Euro.
Getting to Southampton
Most people will probably get to Southampton from London. You can, however, also fly directly to Southampton, e.g. from Edinburg or Glasgow with Loganair, from Amsterdam with KLM, from Dublin or Manchester with Eastern Airways, or from Belfast with Aer Lingus. The prices for round trips to Southampton usually range from €85 to €265.
