  1. There is no need for roubles . Discussed many times.
  2. There are 2 kinds of water transfer to the airport. Alilaguna private water busses and water taxis. The water bus can take 90 minutes plus. (it goes the longest possible route). Water taxis take about 35 minutes, can hold up to 10 and will cost 130€. Google motoscafi Venezia for details.

  4. You require a passport, passport card (whatever that is) or Nexus card. I certainly hope you have one .
  5. It all depends on your budget. Given the overall cost of a cruise and flights, I would definitely splurge for the water taxi and hotel in Venice proper. The next day, leave your luggage at the hotel until it is time to head for the port.
  6. 0600 to have a cushion. 6:30 if you dare.
  7. The alilaguna boats take 1 hr and 50 minutes to the cruise terminal. They run every 30 minutes. If you just miss one, you could be 2 hrs ++. Not much fun.

  9. This very subject was covered on June 3 If your plane is on time there is no problem. You will clear customs, grab a taxi and be at the port by 1:30 at the very latest. Whether your plane is on time or not depends primarily on where you have a stop and the weather. Thunderstorms are unpredictable. Seattle would be a good place for a stopover.
  10. First class gets you through security more quickly. Ask at check in.
  11. say 30 minutes. They will monitor flights. You aren’t reserving a specific taxi. There is only so much space at the dock. The dispatcher calls them in as needed and gives you the taxi ID number.
  12. Google Cherbourg Normandy tours yields a number of tours I have no personal experience. We took 2 full days in a rental car to ‘see’ from Pegasus bridge north of Caen to St. Mere Eglise. if you want to focus on just the American beaches and cemetery there will be a tour for you. A rental car is another option but you will spend time wandering around
  13. It all depends on your budget. Venice is magical. Also crowded and expensive. You could spend a month there We found 3 whole days to be ideal. Ca’ Angeli was a very good, accessible small hotel. On the grand canal and steps from the water taxi dock. If you have a lot of luggage and want to be away from Piazzal Roma, water taxis are the way to go for arrival and departure.
  14. Your ship is large. It will be at the marittima port. Take the people mover to Piazza di Roma and then the number 1 Vaporetto to Ca’ d’Oro. A vaporetto ride on the grand canal is half the fun. Or you could walk. It’s 25 minutes according to google maps. I would walk 1 way and take the vaporetto the other.
