We are sailing 10-10 venice to athens. We arrive at Marco Polo airport. The transfer with Oceania is $100 for 2 people. Is that a fair rate or can we arrange our own ground transportation for enough less to cancel the prearranged transfer. ? thanks
We used a company last week called Venice limousine.. they charged 55 EU for 4 of us in a mini van- new V W type
and for our other friends who had an earlier plane to catch , the car for 2 ( Mercedes) cost 50 EU They were on time waithing for us where you get your luggage. http://www.venice-limousine.com/
You can catch a Blue bus between the arrival&departure gates.
This goes to Piazzale Roma for 2.70 euros per person. It is
a 20 minute ride. You can then walk to Stazione Marittima in
about 10 to 15 minutes or take the #6 bus to the Marittima.
Also there should be taxis available at Piazzale Roma to the
Marittima, this is a two minute drive. The cruise terminal web
site(www.vtp.it) also states there is a free shuttle from Piazzale
Roma to the cruise ships on Sat.,Sun. and Mon.. I do not know
if this is accurate. Be sure you get the correct Blue bus for Piazzale
Rome. We are also on the 10/10 cruise. We do not have our air
schedule yet. Check out the web site for the terminal it has a good map of the
If you call Oceania, you can find out what air arrangements they have made for you. We were very disappointed that they had booked us on flights getting to Venice at 6PM, effectively costing us an entire day in Venice. I am presently working with the air deviation department to get earlier flights.
I finally got thru to Oceania after three days of being on hold for
10-15 minutes at a time. Our flights(tentative according to Oceania)
are great. Leave JFK at 5:55PM arrive in Venice at 11:40AM. Return flight
Athens 12:30PM direct to JFK at 4:05PM.
Andee is right we have the 2 1/2 hour layover in Paris.
AirFrance flight 8991(Delta 16) code share to Paris.
Having the layover at CDG probably will be to our
advantage as CDG is not fun. Wish we could get the
direct, but these flights are OK with us especially the return.
We have been on many 24hr return itinerary flights from
Europe, bouncing all over the two continents.
