  1. How do you find the Cunard single cabins. So far, all I see are high single supplements on Conard.
  2. I checked the deck plans. Assuming that they have been updated since dry dock, it looks like they kept the launderette on Deck 6 (our deck) but I do not see a launderette anywhere else. I think that using the ship's laundry service is still the best bet.
  3. I have been to Venice many times and have travelled in Italy many times. I think we are on our own with our luggage. They may help you from the dock into the boat. That would be all you can expect.
  4. I suspect you and your luggage are on your own. Pack lightly.
  5. We are planning to take the Alilaguna.
  6. I never have but it looks like it would be a fun trip.
  7. Check ferry schedules here: https://www.apathtolunch.com/2014/07/portofino-ferry-boat-schedules-from.html I've always found that spending the day in and around Portofino was enough.
  8. I've never walked the road and am not sure you can walk the road. I've always taken the ferry.
  9. I have been to Portofino many times. You can easily "tour" this very small town on your own. Things to do - walk, browse the shops, visit a restaurant, have a coffee and a beer. You can easily walk up to Santa Margherita.
  10. Good recommendation. I have booked a shared taxi on Viator based on your recommendation.
  11. Your cruise line should be able to answer this.
  12. This is an option I'll investigate once we're at our hotel.
  13. I saw this several days ago and printed the directions.
  14. I'll have to check with my grandson but chances are he will want to do this. We have booked the Hotel Flora - it's more expensive than other hotels but I figured since it is the end of our trip, we could splurge. However, do you know this hotel and what is your opinion of it? Do you recommend a different hotel?
  15. We won't go directly to the airport as we're staying in Venice for two days. We'll take the Alilaguna to our hotel (near San Marco) and from our hotel to the airport. Our flight leaves at 11:00 so we'll need to catch an early shuttle. The Alilaguna should take about 1 hour 20 minutes to get to the airport from San Marco.
