Where Can I Park My Car at the Port of Southampton on Holland America Line
Be prepared to pay up to $20 (American $) a day to park in covered parking at the cruise terminal. You will pay upfront when booking(cash, major credit card or US traveler's check only) – not when you leave. (verified August 2010)
There are several offsite parking lots with shuttles to the Southampton port – the savings can be significant. If you are arriving by car the night before your cruise, several of the hotels in the area may let you leave your car in their lot while you cruise. However, you will need to stay at least one night before your cruise – look for "Park 'n Stay" rates advertised by the hotel. These hotels usually have a shuttle to take you to and from the cruise port. (verified April 2010)

It will take about 20 or 30 minutes for the drive. Yes, the cruise lines offer bus transfers, but, for two people, a cab is a cheaper, more efficient option (and you don't have to wait for a bus to be filled-up before leaving the airport for the cruise port).
