The rules for all European flights is currently 2 hours. We recently flew out of Stansted to France and 2 hours was barely enough time to cope with the queues and hold-ups.

I would agree with Reed and say that it is much better to have time to spare at the airport than to be rushed and flustered because of some traffic hold-up or other problem getting there. We always allow far more than the suggested time and have often been grateful we did. ....Neil.

Just make sure you see the Azamara Rep at the airport before checking in, so they can check you off the list and ensure you get the transport to the port at Athens, otherwise you may have to find your own way to the port. we always arrive at the airport 3 hours before a European flight or 4 before a Long haul Flight and use the Lounges for a bit to eat and a glass of bubbes or 2.

Thank you all for your advice, what led you believe Lowther that we were on an Azamara cruise? You are quite correct and will certainly look out for the Rep at Heathrow, good tip. thanks again.

I can see now Azamara is in the heading to my question. We fly on Wednesday on 11 day cruise Athens to Monte Carlo. Have you done this cruise? Any tips?

Entirely agree with Neil, allow plenty of time, no stress, no rushing about. Allow plenty of time to browse and maybe a nice casual snack and relax. Enjoy your cruise .
