Default Disembark at Venice- public vaporetto to San Zaccaria?

After we disembark from Summit at Venice, we'd like to take public vaporetto to San Zaccaria (near San Marco). We plan to use only wheeled carry-on bags. It appears that Celebrity does not provide free shuttle after the cruise from the ship to Piazza San Marco any more- it used to. Can we walk from the ship (cruise terminal) to the nearest vaporetto stop- Piazza Roma? It was not clear on the map. Any tips on economic ways to get from the ship to San Zaccaria will be appreciated!

Do they provide a shuttle to Piazza Roma?
If not you may need to take a taxi to there & get the vaporetto to San Zaccaria.

This site may help with which one to take

check with the celebrity onboard shore excursion desk. They should be able to guide you to the nearest vaperetto stop. I was there in May and I was on vaperetto. I looked at the chart and thought I saw that there is a stop near the port.

Thanks for your help!
I know the nearest vaporetto stop is at Piazza Roma, I just don't know if it's easy to walk from the ship to the stop at Piazza Roma with a wheeled carry-on bag?

the link I just sent you mentions that the cruise terminal has it's own vaparretto stop. Hope this helps.

cheers
