Call and find out. We took the transfer (on Carnival) only in the one direction (ship to airport) as we stayed in Rome before the cruise and therefore took the train from the airport into Rome. I don't think it was too expensive. At least not compared to the $300 a taxi would want to charge.

I contacted a limo service I found on the internet. They had a driver with a small van meet us at the dock. He had a sign with our name and I found him with no porblem. Cost was 100 euros total for four people with two large suitcases each little less than the Cruise ship transfer, but We did not have to ride on a bus so it was worth it.
IF I had to do it over I would fly to Italy, take the Express train into Rome, and take train to port. Keep in mind train arrives in Rome on one side of station and you have to walk to the other side to of the station to get the train to the port. Once your at the port train station its a short walk from the station to the port bus shuttle stop. Port shuttle bs is free to your ship.
On return I would take train from port to Rome, stay a few days in Rome and then take express train to Airport.
All lines are pretty comparable in terms of cost for transfer. Princess was charging $70 per person one way ship to Rome Airport FUmicilli (sp?). If you are travelling light, and I mean light, you can take the train to termini then switch and take another train to airport. Hassle hass

If you are travelling light, and I mean light, you can take the train to termini then switch and take another train to airport. Hassle hassle. I would never do it again. We did it on the way to the ship and had loads of time. There are no elevators at the Civitavvechia station - stairs stairs stairs mega hassle if you have heavy suitcases. If you can get a cheap cab $100 euros for two people. Do it, but again, it is 1.5 hours from the ship to airport by cab and the hassle of traffice and everything else. We personally build the cost of these transfers now into our overall cruise cost. Cheers.
