Default Venice Cruise Terminal by Private Car

We plan to board the Golden Princess in Venice this summer. We expect to be driven to Venice in a private car. Indications are that the car can drop off passengers right outside the cruise terminal. In view of current security concerns, etc., is it still possible for this to happen, i.e., a private car get close to the terminal?

We drove to this terminal in August last year and we could get within a few hundred metres of the terminal in our car. Our bags were unloaded at that point and we could drive on to leave the car in the long-term secured car park. We just walked back to the ship with our hand luggage. very easy.

As I read your message, it seems to say you had to carry your bags "a few hundred meters" from where the car dropped you to the terminal. Is this correct?

No, not at all. The bags were taken by handlers and the next time we saw them was in our cabin. It was all very orderly and professionally done. If you need to know how to get to the terminal, just drive across the long bridge linking Venice to the mainland. At the end of the bridge, you turn to the right towards the port, which is well signposted. At a roundabout, there is a large sign for each cuise line showing you where to go to get to the right terminal.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

I've had a quote for a mini-coach (there are 6 of us) of Euros 50 to take us from Marco Polo airport to the pier for our Golden sailing on 28th July.

According to the limo company

"There are 3 passengers ship docks in Venice: Marittima (the berth for all big ships), San Basilio (fit for smaller ships) both of them achievable by cars, and Riva dei Sette Martiri which instead is achievable by boat only; this pier is used very rarely when Marittima and San basilio have not berths available because the large number of ships; the Golden Princess usually berths at the Marittima and I'm 99 percent sure it will dock there.
Just for your information, to get Riva dei Sette Martiri a boat transfer has to be added; cost about 80 (private) or 3,10 each person (public)"
