We are going on Royal Caribbean cruise departing from Ravenna/Porto Corsini on June 1, 2024. We will fly into Milan (MXP).

What options do we have to get to the cruise port? 


Hello @Aloha2023 and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards!


Thank you for your new thread on the Cruise Blogs & Websites forum. However, it is off-topic there since that forum is for our members to post links to their personal travelogue-type of cruise-related blogs or websites. 


To help you out, your new thread has been moved to the Ports of Call - Italy Ports forum where it will be on the correct forum and will be on topic. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have been there frequent this forum and provide feedback here. Browse through the thread titles on this forum looking for threads of interest. You will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that may be of interest to you.


The Cruise Critic website and message boards are both great resources for new as well as experienced cruisers, and we are so glad you found us! Please feel free to browse the Cruise Critic Community categories list for the various forums. Please read a few threads in the different forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads (aka Stickies) on the top of the first page of threads in most forums. You will find very important instructions or information there.


Please remember the following portion from the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic memberships:

Browse Before You Post
Browse a topic first to see if your question has already been asked or answered by someone else. Also, many of the major cruise lines forums have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) topic that has been created by our members. Give that a try first. Browsing is your #1 best resource! Please post your messages in an appropriate topic so that you'll receive the best possible response. It is very time consuming to move misplaced messages that are in the wrong topics.


To find your fellow Cruise Critic members sailing with you on your cruise, you need to post on the specific Cruise Critic Roll Call thread for your cruise line, ship and sail date. Since you did not mention your RCI ship name, I cannot refer you to the Roll Call thread for your cruise if one has already been created.


Please read What is a Roll Call? Everything you Need to Know and How To: Create A New Roll Call. For more information about our famous Roll Calls, please read the Roll Calls and Our Policy Regarding Facebook and Roll Calls sections in the GuidelinesWe also have the following Cruise Critic article from last year you might enjoy8 Reasons to Join a Cruise Critic Roll Call


The specific Roll Call thread for your cruise is the ONLY place on the Cruise Critic message boards where you and your fellow Roll Call thread members are allowed to post personal ads about sharing private tours, excursions or transportation with each other to save money. There is a "captive audience" there since you are all sailing together! Your fellow Roll Call thread members may have important information posted in your Roll Call thread. Especially those that may have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before. Also, they may have already posted share requests that may interest you. Roll Calls are for people to get to know one another before their cruise. Therefore, there will be all kinds of discussion!


Once you locate the Roll Call thread for your specific line, ship and sail date if one is already created, first read through the whole thread to get to know the other Cruise Critic members sailing with you. Then use the dark blue Reply to this topic button to post an introductory post about yourself on the Roll Call thread. When done with your message, click the dark blue Submit Reply button. 


If you want to address a particular post already in the thread, click the Reply to this topic button and then be sure to click the Quote feature on that particular post as I did yours so all will be aware of what your post concerns. You type your message UNDER the light blue quote box then click the dark blue Submit Reply button. If the member has used the Follow feature on the thread, they will get a notification that you have quoted their post.


If a Roll Call thread for your specific line, ship & sail date has NOT been created, please feel free to create it! Just follow the directions in How To: Create A New Roll CallThen sit back and wait for your fellow Cruise Critic members sailing with you to join in with posts. They will appreciate you starting the Roll Call! And don't worry about any responsibilities in starting a Roll Call thread. Roll Calls belong to everyone on the Roll Call thread. There is no designated leader or owner. It does not matter who started the thread.


If you ever need technical help in regard to using the Cruise Critic message board software, go to the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum. You will see a large amount of "How to..." pinned threads toward the top of the forum's first page. Also, browse through the threads in the forum looking for threads of interest. Again, you will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that may be of interest to you.


So sorry this is so long, but I sincerely hope this information will be helpful to someone new to posting on our message boards. We are glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! 


Happy sails,


Host Kat

What variables are important to you?  


It's about 350 km/220 miles from MXP to the port at Ravenna, so I sincerely hope you're not thinking of flying in the morning of cruise departure.


You could take a connecting flight to Bologna, then train, bus or car service from there.


From MXP you could rent a car and drive yourself, or take the train (between 4-5 hours, at least two changes en route).  A car service is always a possibility, but given the distance, an expensive one.

Hello Aloha2023!


I am taking a similar trip in May and plan to stay at the Hotel NH Ravenna the night before my departure because it's just a short walk from the Ravenna train station and it's a pick-up location for one of the shuttle buses that Visit Ravenna runs to Porto Corsini. To make things easy for yourself, I'd recommend staying at any of the hotels served by the shuttle, which you can book here: https://www.visitravenna.it/en/cruising-ravenna


I'm also planning to see the mosaics in Ravenna. You can find information about them here: https://www.ravennamosaici.it/en/


Enjoy your trip!
