2 nights in Venice before Celebrity Cruise in August

We fly into Marco Polo on a Thursday and are boarding the Celebrity Cruise on the Saturday, can anybody recommend a good hotel that is easy to get to from the airport and then to the Port, don’t want to be spending all our time dragging cases about. Thanks in advance. We are looking for a traditional Venetian boutique style hotel. Thanks in advance :-)

Sure there are many options -- I would suggest looking for a hotel with their own dock or very close to a Vaporetto stop.

The hotels in Piazzale Roma are not boutique style so as mentioned you will need a hotel either near a vaporetto stop or that has its own Dock and use a water taxi for arrival and departure. Possibly price range or have a look in hotel booking site and then come back with ones you like the look of a d we can give you more feedback.

We stayed at Crowne Plaza in Venice East D'Altino,and they picked us up, transported us to the cruise terminal. The rooms were awesome and included buffet breakfast. It was also a small town to explore.

I have just read your post . I have just booked a cruise from Venice I am also going to stay a night before the cruise. I am alarmed at some stories of having to cross bridges with heavy cases. When you got your transfer from the hotel did it take you to cruise ship terminal

Kind Regards Lynne

In Venice, you have to cross bridges.

Heavy cases, well, that’s choice. One can pack fewer clothes.

Why is it that people going on cruises have to take more luggage than other travellers?
