Transport from Venice to Porto Corsini Ravenna Italy


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Our family of 5 is looking for the best and budget friendly way to travel from our hotel in Venice July 3rd 2022 to the cruise terminal port in Porto Corsini, Ravenna Italy.
All suggestions welcome - we check with RCCL and they said that they can  not help us as we were arriving three days before departure and that they shuttles were only available to those guests arriving at Marco Polo Airport on the day of embarkation. I spoke to our hotel and was quoted 320 euros which in us dollars is $380.00

All Ideas are welcome 

Thank you 

Michael

They said you could not use that option, even if you paid? I don't understand why not? I'm interested in finding out what you are going to do, as we are in the same situation next Oct.

 

Happy Cruising!

Yes , I asked they said that if i arrive before embarkation at the air port i will need to find my own way to the port. So far i have reached out to our hotel and was quoted a minivan ride which is about 2.5 hrs for the family to be 320 euros or approx. 380 uds our departure is not till July 3, 2022 but i was trying to budget for the transport and then transport back will be another 400 usd if going back to Venice

You could take the train from Venice to Bologna then from there to Porto Corsini, travel time is about 4hrs but would work out less $$$$ for the trip.

We are going to use that option to go to Florence. Might you know the cost to go from Porto Corsini to Ravenna Train station?

And we are in same scenario also next Sept.    Could you just go to the airport and pretend you just arrived?  How would they know?

I've been emailing with my TA Kathy G at MEI about this. She said that she has been in this scenario before and has secured shuttle transportation for clients on embarkation day, even though they arrived early. She contacted RC and said she was upfront with the RC rep as to what she was doing, which the RC rep acknowledged, and was able to secure transportation by supplying a flight number that arrived that day. Sneaky? Yes. Great customer service? Definitely! 

I'm not sure if you are going through a TA or booked directly with RC, but I guess the answer is that it's possible to secure airport transportation same day. I'd talk to your TA, if you booked with one and see what they can do. Kathy was going to inquire a little more with RC and get back to me. When she does, I'll post what info she gets here.

 

Happy Cruising!

We are also leaving next September 4, arriving in Venice 4 days early, taking the train to Ravenna on Saturday morning and staying overnight and taking a taxi to Porto Corsini, the cruise port.    Just watch the trains, some require 2 transfers some only one. There is no direct train to Ravenna from Venice, however the fare is very inexpensive.

There are trains leaving every hour on Saturday.

You can also get your covid test at the train station in Venice before you board to Ravenna.  We decided  to arrive the day before the cruise so we could tour the mosaics in Ravenna, much of the town will be closed on Sunday so there wont be much to tour or shop.  It also makes for a relaxing morning before cruise check in.

Hello I booked the bus with Royal Caribbean but am also going to be in Venice before and will go back to the airport the morning of departure to get the shuttle. 

The booking sytem they have will not let them book a shuttle without a flight number and they explained to me it was to ensure the the flight would not arrive later than the time it takes for a shuttle to make the last trip before the ship departs.

if you get a flight number from google flights arriving the morning of departure you could call up and explain your situation and book they just check your name when you get there.
