Marco Polo Airport and balcony cabin info

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with the times from Marco Polo Airport to the cruise port please. Also, we are booked into a balcony cabin 9084 on Radioso Deck - can anyone let me know if this is a good place to be. Thanks in advance.

It depends on what mode of transport you use

 

1) land taxi 20 - 30 minutes

 

2) Water Taxi 30 - 40 minutes

 

3) water bus 2 to 2.5 hours

 

4) airport bus and people mover 1 to 1.5 hours

 

 

If you want more info about a specific mode just ask

 

9084 has a steel balcony (not the best) , you will see the top of a life boat when looking down

Which ship are you on?

 

Radioso is not a deck on Divina

it may make a difference to the type of balcony you have as not all the Fantasia class have steel balconies as far back on deck 9

 

 

Edit:-

I've checked and you're on MSC Fantasia

 

Your cabin WILL NOT have a steel balcony so all is good

Ps sorry about the confusion but most enquiries on this forum are about DIvina

Thank you Skier52. From the airport we are going by coach arranged by TA. Our original booking was for an internal cabin and I presumed we had been upgraded to a balcony - which in theory we have - at least the life boat will not be directly in front of our view. The holiday is what you make it so as long as the ship and cabin are fine I'll be happy.

Sorry, I did not read your last message. It is the MSC Fantasia leaving on 31st August.

Check my edit on my earlier post

Thanks Pete have now read your edit. Thanks for taking the trouble to check this out for me. I would have put up with a steel balcony - not one to moan - but a glass one is so much nicer. Never been on the Fantasia but so looking forward to the trip.

This is where your balcony is

Here it is, not the best position on the ship I'm afraid, but it is a balcony and an upgrade

Hi Pete

 

Many thanks. We are over the moon to have an upgrade and a balcony from a gty inside:) Out of our last 3 cruises, 1 was an outside cabin and the most recent 2 were inside but didn't detract from our enjoyment of the cruises. Last year's cruise was the Splendida, so expect similar standards and will be chuffed, even more so because Alegrissimo already paid as opposed to paying at the time:)

 

Thanks again

 

Annx

I agree with you, it was so good to get helpful advice and also to have a fellow cruiser go the extra mile to answer queries. It is so good to be re-assured however small or large your question is.
