Capri Ferry Ticket to Naples Question

Alberta Hat

Recommended Posts

We have read some great tips regarding visiting Capri and as a result would like to go to Capri in the morning and then possibly come back in time to visit some Naples sights such as the Veiled Christ. With this in mind we would like to wait to buy our return ticket to Naples as it will depend on how the first half of the day goes. Some folks suggest to buy return ticket at same time as Capri ticket. Wondering if you have flexibility in time with these pre bought tickets. Also is it okay to wait to buy the return ticket till ready to go. :confused:

There is no flexibility if you pre-purchase.


One of the downsides of buying both tickets at the same time is that you are limited to the schedule of the particular line you go out on. Waiting to purchase until you are on Capri gives you the full range of choices.


If you're going to leave midday from Capri you won't face huge lines to purchase a return ticket. If you want until the end of the day, however, the lines can be quite long. That's why folks here generally suggest you buy your return ticket upon arrival on Capri rather than waiting until you want to leave. In your case, leaving at midday, that isn't necessary.

I went to Capri last week and I'll share a situation of someone I talked to on our cruise as a warning not to wait to the last minute to get a ferry home. The couple went to Capri on one way ticket and they said they thought it would no issue getting back. They bought their tickets home right before they the return ferry was supposed to leave. They got to the ferry and were denied boarding with a group of other people as the ship was oversold. The crew did not care that they would miss their ship as they said its first come first serve on getting on the boat. The next ship was not supposed to arrive until after the ship had left. They took their chances and took the next one as their other chance was to pay a crew member's friend 1000 euros cash to take his private speed boat back.


They made the ship as the ship had to wait as they left their 16 yr old onboard as he/she did not want to go. In this case Carnival cannot leave a port with a minor onboard without their parents or kick the minor off the ship.




We left early in the morning for Capri and then took a midafternoon one back with no issues. We could not believe that the ships were running full in and out all day long.
