Also look up Southampton blue funnel day cruises, as they provide  the opportunity  to see more vessels in Southampton docks neither the IOW ferry or the harbour cruises are over expensive plus give a non interested companion an opportunity to see something different. Hope you have a pleasant  time.

You mentioned Portsmouth. Best spot for view and photographs at Portsmouth is the Round Tower. Take the train to Portsmouth Harbour Station, then follow the millennium trail south for about twenty minutes on foot. There is a tourist information centre at the Hard Interchange, just outside the station, with excellent free maps.

If you are in this area, another good option is a round trip on the Red Funnel ferry from Southampton to Cowes on the Isle Of Wight. From Southampton Railway Station take a bus to the ferry terminal at Town Quay (I think it's free). The ferry passes close to vessels at the Eastern Docks, and Fawley, and Hamble if any alongside, plus anything on the move in Southampton Water. Round trip takes about 2-1/2 hours.

Hi Richard,

Stena run a ferry service from near my home at Harwich to the Hook of Holland, which is at the mouth of the New Waterway. From there its still I think a bus replacement service to Rotterdam due to the rail service suspended whilst a new metro/tram is built. Public cruises of Rotterdam harbour are run by "Spido" which can be accessed by a tram from Rotterdam central station Used to be number 5 last time I used it).
A small fast ferry runs from the Hook of Holland to Europort for passengers and bikes. This affords good views and photographic opportunities if you do a round trip which is very cheap around 5 Euros.

This link may help you access the Kiel Canal from Rotterdam

best regards and best of luck and enjoy your holiday.
