My husband, John, and I have been on over 30 cruises, usually arranging our own transport to and from the ship rather than buying the cruise line package.

In June-July ’04 we did a 35-day freighter trip out of Southampton, England, to several countries in Europe. Our bible is the “Airport Transit Guide” (2004. ISBN 1890407070 — 145 pp., $11.95 paperback), now in its 23rd year. Salk International puts this out, and it is available on Amazon.com and through Magellan’s travel store (800/962-4943 or www.magellans.com).

This guide shows transportation to the city from every airport in the world, and it is accurate! We usually get to a major hotel in each city using this guide, then take transportation from there to the port after asking at the hotel for all types of transport and the prices available.

If you arrive a day before the ship leaves, not only do you have a chance for sleep but you can get a good idea of how the city is set up and also look at public transportation.
