  6. Will be sailing on the Jewel of the Seas out of Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal and I have a few questions regarding disembarkation and transfers to FCO airport. 1. In general, what time does disembarkation begin?

What transfers, or transfer companies recommended for Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal to FCO airport? 3. From where the Jewel of the Seas docks at Civitavecchia Cruise Terminal, how far away are the transfer vehicles located? Are they located on the pier, just by the ship, easy to find? etc. Thank for all information, advice, and recommendations. Appreciate your help and support.
  7. If I hire a private transfer pick up in Civitavecchia Port and disembarking off Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas, how far from the ship are the transfer cars located?

  10. Interested in spending a few nights in Rome prior to cruise out of Civitavecchia. Planning to arrive Civitavecchia the afternoon before the cruise. I see that there are a variety of train options from Rome Termini to Civitavecchia, but need a train with adequate space for luggage. We won't be traveling with a lot of luggage, probably just one regular size checked luggage and a carry on. But some trains according to some YouTube videos seem to have limited space for luggage which seems odd. Any suggestions, recommendations, and advice? Thanks!

Appreciate advice and information. Thanks!
  16. Planning to take a Greece cruise departing out of Rome's cruise port. If the return arrival is stating 5 am, what is disembark time?
