Venice - Marghera Cruises

EMBARKATION FOR CRUISES FROM VENICE - MARGHERA

For very many years, ships had no alternative but to go down the Giudecca canal to reach the city’s cruise terminal.
Authorities have finally provided an alternative by opening the port of Marghera also to cruise vessels.  

 

For guests' convenience, all Health and Safety and embarkation procedures including luggage drop-off and meet & greet, will be held in Venice Maritime Station (Venice Passenger Terminal).

All embarking Guests will then be transferred to Venice Marghera, where they will board the ship after a quick document check.

Guests who might be arriving to Venice Marghera on their own will be asked to go to Venice Maritime Station (Venice Passenger Terminal) for check-in operations and thus might risk being late for embarkation.

Start planning your cruise and book your excursions in Venice - Marghera
Venice, a romantic MSC Mediterranean Cruises destination, is an artisan masterpiece. The city is built on 118 small islands, separated by canals, in a shallow lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. This UNESCO World Heritage Site overflows with beauty – from the gondola-lined canals and ancient marble palaces to historical architectural feats like St. Mark’s Basilica and the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo. Visiting Venice is like being in a fabled land, a scintillating mix of culture, history, and water.
 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
· Saint Mark’s Square
· Famous Venetian Museums 
· Gondola Experience

 

Guests with an MSC Shore Excursion in Venice will be taken directly from the ship (docked at Marghera) to San Marco Square by boat enjoying an approximate 45-minute ride along the Venice canal. The on board MSC Excursions team will take care of every detail.
