Pre embarkation testing at Southampton


Recommended Posts

When we sailed at the end of November we used the new Horizon terminal - don't expect anything in the way of facilities as there aren't any!  After our luggage was taken we were marched around the corner to queue for lateral flow tests.  We were eventually separated into groups then led individually into a testing booth where a nurse supervised a self test.  The group was then taken to a rather austere area with metal grids that looked similar to a prison but where they had plastic chairs.  The group had to sit in a designated area and further groups were seated in a different area of the room.  We were supervised constantly,  After half an hour the group we were part of was given clearance to go beyond the steel fence.  Then we could queue for the check-in desk which was surprisingly efficient considering all the extra paperwork involved.  Yes, we did have to show everything and we saw one couple turned away for not having the correct documents.
