Fort Lauderdale to Southampton on
the Crown Princess!
Below is the cruise map for our Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) to Southampton Cruise.
We board on April 8th and arrive in Southampton on 22nd April.
This will be our first transatlantic sailing.
We fly Virgin Atlantic from LHR to MIA on the 7th April and stay in our usual pre-cruise hotel The
Intercontinental at Doral. They always look after us really well and it has a Club Intercontinental Lounge
which is an added bonus.
Around midday on the 8th we will board the coach for the roughly 3/4 hour drive north to Fort Lauderdale and into
Port Everglades where we join Crown Princess. This is our first time on Crown but she is identical to Emerald so
we will already know our way around having spent 48 days on Emerald autumn 2016. The main difference and it
is a good one as far as we are concerned, is that they still a have Sabatini's unlike on Emerald where they
replaced it with Share by Curtis Stone.

We have been lucky enough to have been offered an up-sell from our balcony to a mini-suite for just £49pp,
we took it, we have only cruised in balcony cabins previously so this will make a nice change and for far
less than booking a mini-suite to start with.
