5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great way to get from the cruise terminal to the hotel, only had to wait 15 mins for other couples to make the group. It was straight to the hotel within 20 mins and a cruise down the Grand Canal. Excellent!

We found this to be a time saver vs. the public water bus.

We departed our cruise ship at 8am with our luggage and easily found the transfer point. A quick trip through the canal and we were dropped off 200 meters from our hotel which was an easy find and no hassle. This transfer meant we didn't have to wait for the transfers arranged by the cruise ship and we could take our luggage with us and check in to our hotel and make the most of our day.

Very simple procedure to get to the boat and dropped us off in good time for us to explore the rest of Venice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

We were met ,at the pier and escorted to the boat immediately. No waiting what so ever. There were six passengers, total. We were the first to be dropped off, along with another couple. It made for an easy transfer.

This is the ONLY way to get to your hotel from Cruise Port, albeit a tad expensive (as is ALL water transportation in the lagoon). The crowds and waits for public transport at the terminal are unbelieveable when a cruise ship docks. For all intents and purposes this is door to door chauffeuring in a very nice launch and is quick plus it's a good way to see the Grand Canal without being on crowded public water transport (which I am not knocking, it's a good way to get around for $7E per person per direction) or a tour boat. Plus our ride sharers were a lot of fun to be with and we joined them later in the evening for drinks.
