There are easy to use check-in machines....type in a few details from your booking and 2 key cards magically jump into the box at the bottom.
However, like most Premier Inns , the hotel is also security conscious. The reception desk is manned 24 hours, and you can only enter the lifts by using your key card. Next to the list is a freephone for taxis and a list of all the ships in port with the names of the terminal where they will be berthed, a useful reminder when booking a taxi.
If staying a bit longer, you could even collect a parcel from Amazon.
Last night we met up in the bar with a group of friends, all linked by our longstanding membership of a little UK based cruise forum and facebook group. People have travelled from as far as Scotland, Wales and the South West, and more will be joining us onboard.
