We flew into London Heathrow Airport, arriving at 0630 the day the cruise began.  We took a National Express bus from Heathrow to Southampton (National Express is similar to Greyhound in the US).  Our bus was non-stop and took about 90 minutes.  The cost was very reasonable.
We took a taxi from the bus station to the pier, and arrived quite early.  Princess had a large waiting room in a former warehouse where we and the many other early arrivers waited until we boarded the Royal Princess at 1230.  We had a snack in the Lido Cafe and then took a nap to help our jet lag.  We got up to experience the departure at 1700.  A jazz band was playing on the dock as we sailed.
