Venice Dock


Recommended Posts

We will be boarding the Symphony in Venice next May [Wednesday May 11, 2022].  In doing research, I discovered that there are two terminal areas - Marittima and San Basilio.  Does anyone know, based on past history, which terminal the Symphony is likely to be docked at?  Thanks for any guidance.

Given that the Italian government recently passed legislation banning all but the smallest ships from the Guidecca Canal, I suspect that past usage is meaningless.

Agree with the above.  From what I have read the large ships will be docking in the industrial port at Marghera.  I am happy about this.  having been in Venice on ships and on land stays there are way too many ships and day trippers in Venice.  It is magical after all the cruise passengers leave.  In interviews I watched the local residents understand tourism is their bread and butter but they also understand over tourism,

You are best to wait on your inquiry and a few months before the start of the cruise I would write to On Board Guest Services for confirmation where Symphony will be docking.  You can write them at:

use @ in place of AT and . in place of DOT.
