I am trying to figure out logistics when we dock in Salerno to take the ferry to Positano.

Does anyone have recent experience doing this?
Does the ship provide a shuttle to Piazza Della Concordia?

I would appreciate any tips.

If the timing works for you, Alicost goes right from Molo Manfredi (where the cruise port is) to Positano at 8 AM and 8:40 AM, schedule here: http://www.alicost.it/en/orari-e-prezzi/

The problem is usually the return, Alicost's first return to Salerno doesn't arrive until 6:30 PM, which is often too late for cruise passengers. If that's the case you'd need to either return to Piazza Concordia and walk (about a mile and a half) or take the bus to the cruise port.

For specifics on whether your cruise line (I'm guessing Disney, based on the user name) offers a shuttle you might ask on the cruise line forum. I haven't heard of any ships offering this but they might.

There is a public bus that runs along the Lungomare that would cut the walking by more than half.
