Where is the cruise terminal in Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy?
USS Coral Sea, CVA 43, 1966-1967
There’s a plethora of information on the Ports of Call board regarding this .Yes, tons of info on the Italy board, here:
If one is staying in Rome a few days before a cruise what are the options to get to the cruise terminal?It's not an express train for cruisers - the times I have caught it the train was just part of the suburban network. Personally I wouldn't catch it again as you have to lug your bags and then get to the port from the station near Civitavecchia. Try your roll call to see if someone on the same cruise wants to share transport from Rome. We did last time and the 140 Euro cost was divided by 6 which makes it very affordable.
I found a Express train for cruisers. Anyone know if this is still available?
We like the train, but we travel with carry-ons only, so schlepping bags is kept to a minimum.
Depending on time of day, the train can be nearly empty or quite full of passengers. It is basically a commuter train...runs frequently. There may be express trains, but they are infrequent which, for me, means they are inconvenient.
The train I describe takes 1-1 1/2 hours from Rome Termini to Civitavecchia.
Great info - Also, There are a few flights of steep stairs to get to the train which is difficult with heavy bags. I need to learn to be like you and only have a carry on - if only I could stop buying stuff when I am there!Lori - We travel with steamer trunks... Just our toiletries are 15 lbs. LOL
We are thinking of using a shared shuttle to the port the next time we cruise from Rome.Daisyloo - Great idea; always check out reviews on Trip Advisor first.
70 euros for 2 people.
Oh PLEASE don't give me any ideas...Lori - We try to pack conservatively -- but that never happens when you go for three weeks. On one cruise a group of us even bought a horse (which you could bring to the MDR to show off before the BIG race). She had a place at the table -- our horse did not win the BIG race, but did win for Best Dressed Horse. LOL It pays to pack a few extra things...
