    From Barb (Jilljill): Train, coach or private transfers.

    Easiest place to catch the train or coach is Victoria Station, but there are a couple of other connection options in the city. There are many private transfers available but can be outrageous due to the distance, about 2 hours.
    Last summer we used the National Express Coach and it was around $60 for the 3 of us one way. Had I booked it sooner it would have been cheaper. Will definately book it at 12 weeks out for this cruise.

    I've found some links for transfers:

    I do not believe that, I do that to the people on the 'wonder' thread.

    Now funny thing,

    New thread started up saying DCL considering San Diego as a home port, for West cost cruises.

    I posted that at least TWICE on different threads, in the last two months!!!! (and was told it wouldn't happen! why will people not listen to me?)
