What You Can Expect

Venice Private Departure Transfer by Water Taxi: Central Venice to Cruise Port

Venice Cruise Terminal Departure Transfer: Central Venice to Cruise

Skip any transport stress when traveling from your Venice hotel to your cruise port (either Venezia Marittima or San Basilio). Transfer service is available 7 days a week, so you can schedule a pickup time that suits your travel needs. Please provide hotel and cruise details when booking your transfer. You will receive confirmation within 24 hours and a travel voucher to show the transfer representative. 

Choose from two different options:
  • Meet and greet service: A transfer representative will meet you in your hotel lobby if the hotel does not have a private pier. You will then be escorted to a waiting motorboat at the nearest departure point. If your hotel has a private pier, you will hop aboard the motorboat there on your own, and a representative will meet you at the cruise pier and escort you to the port departure terminal.
  • Full service: A representative will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and accompany you all the way to the port departure terminal.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely departure for this transfer. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Price is per person, based on six adults per boat.

Please note: Guests staying at Venice’s Hotel Marriott (Isola delle Rose) will need to pay a surcharge of €20 at the time of service due to the hotel’s more distant location.

Exactly as promised. The water taxi picked us up at the hotel dock. We were greeted by staff at the port that escorted us to check in and offered to help with the luggage. Top notch!

This was a worry free way to get to the cruise ship. Had a lovely lady escort and wait with us at the pickup point and nothing could have been easier. Boat took us right to our ship with no problems at all.

Absolutely the best way to get to the cruise terminal from the Hilton Stucky Molino! The taxi arrived exactly on time with our guide. The guide accompanied us the entire trip, up to cruise checkin - a thoroughly enjoyable tour. One of the best parts? After we called the bellhop for assistance with our luggage, we didn't touch it again until it was safely delivered to our ship cabin. We were able to focus on our surroundings and the beautiful Venice sites rather than worry about our stuff.
