Luggage Storage

Recommended Posts

We will be heading eastbound in April and returning west bound in May.  While we are on land, we plan to store some of our luggage in Southampton  (one suitcase with our “dress up” outfits).   I believe Cunard offers this service.  Has anyone used it?  What are the logistics, such as where do pick up the stored bagged?

Cunard does offer this service. We've used it many times. It's simple and thus far it's worked flawlessly for us. They'll pick up your bag the night before you disembark and when you return, your bag will be waiting for you in your stateroom. Here are the instructions that appeared in the Daily Programme. Keep in mind that the price may have changed. "Guests who wish to store their luggage before disembarking Queen Mary 2 in Southampton prior to their return voyage in the future may do so with our port agent. Please register at the Purser's Office by 6:00 PM on [Day 5] The cost of this service is $65 per bag for up to 30 days and an additional $30 for the next 30 days. This will be charged to your on board account. You will be provided with a separate luggage tag and your luggage will be transported by the port agent to the Carnival UK storage facility until your return."

This is a very good service and we looked into this in the past but were not able to use it as we arrived on Princess and left on Cunard.  Instead we used a private storage company in London that did a great job, but it was London, and we paid more.

Lol this made me smile; I might have used this during the autumn in New York, had I known.  Instead I took some dry cleaners’ plastic clothes wrap and drove 6000 miles around the states with all my dress clothes wrapped in plastic on the back seat footwell of the hire car.
