We go to the taxi desk. "I'm sorry", he says, "We don't have any vehicles that carry people confined in wheelchairs. I can ring one of the firms that do though; there are three we use."
After several minutes we go back and ask what is happening.
"One's on holiday, one's off sick and the other doesn't do it anymore. We'll try someone else."
Ten minutes later we are told they've found someone but they can't get here until 12.30. It's a good job we aren't in a hurry!
Rob's Taxi from Eastleigh arrives as promised and whisks us down to the Mayflower Cruise Terminal.
At least, after our long wait at the airport, we don't have to wait too long here before boarding the ship.
