Does anyone know when Royal Caribbean starts boarding in Rome. We are on Symphony July 5, 2018 and arrive at 9am at airport. Do we need something to do for a few hours?

If you don't hear feom people on the forum you can always call the Cruiseline to ask. The time will also be on your cruise documents much closer to the day you depart.

Hi Rick! What do you have planned for transfers from the airport to the cruise port?

Rick, In Rome the cruise port is a 1 1/2 to 2 hours drive from the port. RCI will have some kind of transportation you can purchase. You could take the train but that does not drop you rite at the ship so you will also need Taxi. When I did cruises out of Rome I had my hotel arrange a Limo for drop off and pick up after the cruise. Rome is a great city and if you can put on a few days pre pr post cruise I think it is worth it to see the city.

We are using Viator. I have used many of their tours and transfers before. very reliable.

thank you, I am trying to figure out if I need something to do, or go right to the ship. Ship does not leave port till 8pm.
