Steamship Shieldhall is not liable for any car parking charges or fines so please ensure that you read all the instructions from the car park you are parking your car in.
Can I walk to the ship?
Yes! If you are walking, you can enter Dock Gate 4 through the entrance or the exit. You may be asked to show your Shieldhall e-ticket so please have this to hand ready for the gate security.
Can I drop passengers off to the ship and then park in the car park?
If you wish, you can drive into Dock Gate 4 and drop off passengers near to the berth and then park your car at any of the recommended car parks.
Why have these arrangements changed from previous years?
Unfortunately, due to port operations, we are unable to use the Ocean Gate ABP Head Office car park unlike previous years. For this reason, we have recommended other car parks within the local area.
Please note that all these car parks are chargeable.
What time do I need to be onboard the ship?
Passengers may board 1 hour prior to departure but need to be onboard at least 15 minutes before scheduled sailing time.
If you are running late, please ring 07496 450328. Shieldhall will need to leave the berth at its published departure time due to the busy schedules in the port of Southampton.
