The majority of vessels sailing in out and of Southampton occurs during the Mediterranean cruise season from Aprill through November.  Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 homeports in Southampton during the winter months of December and January as well as during the Mediterranean season.  Special Needs Group is pleased to provide service to those cruising out of Southampton.  In addition, SNG can also provide Hotel pick-up and delivery at the start or close of a cruise whether the guest is staying in Southampton or London.The Southampton International Airport is a little over five miles from the cruise port terminals; London’s Heathrow Airport is approximately 65 miles from the port.  For more information, please visit us at
