We will be on the 10/29 Splendour of the Seas sailing from Venice. Our train is arriving at the Santa Lucia train station in Venice. RCL tells me that they do not provide a shuttle to the ship from Piazza Roma. Any suggestions on the alternatives to go from Santa Lucia train station to the Marittima terminal? I understand that water taxis are very expensive, so I want to explore all of the alternatives.
click on this link for the port map of Venice:
You see, the cruise terminal it is not far from S. Lucia railway station and piazzale Roma.
From S.Lucia Railway station the terminals can be reached by:
- Public water buses (vaporetti) to P.le Roma (1 stop) where you will find the terminal's bus shuttle or you can take a taxi cab (see further instructions 'from P.le Roma')
- Water taxi directly to the cruise terminal
FROM PIAZZALE ROMA
Piazzale Roma is the only part of the city of Venice that can be reached by car. Here information point for public bus and vaporetti, as well as taxi station and guarded parking areas are available. The cruise and ferry terminals can be reached by:
- Taxi cab (about 2 minutes trip)
- Bus n. 6/ stopping just outside the entrance to the passenger port. Shuttle bus from Piazzale Roma to the ferry terminal: every day in presence of ship. For the timetable please contact the agencies.
