Hi, do you have an airport transfer with your cruise company, who will take you to the airport with pleny of time to kill?, if so, there is a very good bus that will take you back to piazalle roma, where there is a left luggage store, if you are making your own transfers, this is quite close to the port, and from P Roma, you can either get a vaporetto into the centre of Venice, or even walk. Have a great time.

I know of no way of holding luggage in Venice, but we had a similar situation in Barcelona last month (2200hr flight). We rented a room in a cheap hotel for the day 90 Euro between 6 of us. That gave us somewhere for the luggage, wash, toilet, shower & bed & was worth every penny under the circumstances. Just trawl the 'net' & email a few places. Good Luck!

The cruise ship might have a tour you could do before you get dropped off at the airport, but you would still have a good few hours to wait, but perhaps the tour if available and Wilba's option. We certainly did one at Barcelona and it was a fantastic city to see and the tour lasted almost 5 hours.

There is also a left luggage facility at the prot. It's in the baggage hall on the right before the exit.

That's right. you leave your luggage,for 3 EUROS per bag,just as you're leaving the ship-- there is an attendant there all the time. You can then get the free shuttle bus across from the ship, into the tourist area, & walk round, to the Grand Canal , Rialto Bridge, etc.When you come back to the ship, you get the water bus, for 6 Euros,collect the luggage,& they will signal a taxi from opposite the ship, which will cost 34 Euros ,straight to the Airport-- brilliant.

My day out with Emirates..

By Lisa West

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...
