We did go there from Portofino a couple of years ago. You can take a bus or taxi from Portofino to the train station in Santa Margherita to the Cinqe Terra. We were fortunate to go with someone we'd met on Cruise Critic who was familiar with the trains and where to go. I would not have been so anxious to go on my own, but it really wasn't that difficult. We took the train to the furthest village and walked between the first three. We then go on the train to the next village before returning to the ship. We didn't sail until later that evening so we weren't as concerned about returning in time to board.
