Situated on the gorgeous south coast of England, the historic maritime city of Portsmouth is the perfect place from which to embark on a Fred. Olsen cruise, with its fantastic road and rail links to counties in the south, south west, south east and beyond. 

If you're cruising from Portsmouth with Fred. Olsen and need information about driving directions, car parking and travel connections, you can find out more below.

If you are travelling to Portsmouth by car and wish to use SatNav, please use the following post code:

Portsmouth Cruise Port: PO2 8RU

Accessed via the M27 or A27, the M275 motorway takes you straight to the port. 

Should you require car parking at your departure port, please contact:

CPS - Cruise and Passenger Services
Contact 0345 071 3939 | www.cruiseparking.co.uk for prices and to book.
Email: info@cruiseparking.co.uk
When booking your parking please have the following information to hand:

  • Registration number
  • Vehicle make and model
  • Plus any required assistance which may need to be noted

If you have booked and pre-paid car parking with CPS, you will be advised at the time of booking what documentation will be sent and required to present on arrival at the port. 

If you have booked a cruise that includes complimentary car parking, you're still required to book a car parking space. Fred. Olsen will issue a complimentary voucher 2 to 3 weeks before sailing and this will be posted directly, or via your travel agent. This complimentary voucher must be presented to car park staff upon arrival. Regrettably, if guests forget this voucher they will be required to pay the full ‘on the day’ rate, which cannot be reimbursed by Fred. Olsen.

The city of Portsmouth benefits from excellent rail access, with direct services available from London Waterloo, London Victoria, Brighton, Gatwick Airport, Southampton, Eastleigh and Cardiff (via Salisbury and Bristol). To reach the cruise port you'll need to alight at Portsmouth & Southsea Station and take a five minute taxi ride to the port. There is a taxi rank right outside the station.
