Here are 10 Tips on Booking  Civitavecchia Transfers – RomeCabs

TIPS For Transfers from Fiumicino Airport to Civitavecchia

1  Plan your flight arrival at Fiumicino Airport as early in the morning as possible to allow you plenty of extra leeway time in case you experience any flight delays, missed connections, or delayed luggage.  

Travel time from Fiumicino to Civitavecchia is about 1 hour (give or take depending on traffic conditions).

2  Play it safe with your arrival and fly into Fiumicino the day before and either stay overnight at a Fiumicino Hotel or a hotel in Civitavecchia to rest up before your cruise.

3  Ideal pick up time from Rome hotel to Civitavecchia is 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.

Travel time from Rome to Civitavecchia is about 1.5  hours (give or take depending on traffic conditions).

4  If you wish to see more of Rome or the Roman Countryside, you can upgrade your Civitavecchia Transfer into a Rome Pre Cruise Tour with transfer to Civitavecchia,  or Countryside Pre Cruise Tour with Transfer to Civitavecchia.

5  If you have an early morning flight out of Fiumicino Airport on the same day your ship docks in Civitavecchia, be sure to secure an early disembarkation pass from your cruise ship to ensure you will disembark as quickly as possible.  

Check with your cruise line or cruise ship for details and information on early disembarkation

The safest early morning flights from Fiumicino Airport is approximately 11 AM (the earliest).  This allows you flexibility should you encounter any delays with the ship docking, disembarkation, or traffic.

When you have an international flight to catch, it’s potentially risky to cut it so close that that any slight unforeseen delay can cause you to miss your flight.

6  When you book your Civitavecchia Transfer with Stefano’s RomeCabs, don’t forget to include your Ship Name (not Cruise Line) in your reservation so your driver will know which ship to pick you up at. There are often many ships docking in Civitavecchia, and sometimes one cruise line company can have more than one ships docked together on a single day.

For example, the ship name would be:  Crown Princess (Princess Cruises)

7  Most cruises who are going to Rome or local hotel post cruise disembark at approximately 9 AM.

Many cruisers who have early morning flights to catch from Fiumicino Airport disembark early such as between 7 – 8 AM.

It is not recommended to schedule your pick up from Civitavecchia later than 9:00 AM if you are going to Rome accommodation unless you have a late disembarkation pass as most cruisers are disembarked by 9 AM.

If, for example, you book a transfer with 10 AM pick up and you are disembarked by 9 AM, that would mean 1 hour unnecessary wait for your scheduled pick up.

As Civitavecchia Transfer providers, Stefano’s RomeCabs are not privy to the internal workings of cruise ships and their disembarkation process as ships vary in their procedures. We can only offer suggestions based on statistical averages and observations over time.

9 Check your belongings so you don’t leave anything behind in Hotels, Vehicle, Port

It’s not uncommon for cruises to leave their documents behind at the hotel.

Please don’t forget to check the safe box to make sure you’ve collected all your valuables as well as your passport from Front Desk.

Cruisers have also left luggage behind at Civitavecchia.

Please count your total luggage after you’ve collected it to make sure not only you haven’t left any items behind, but also that you haven’t grabbed the wrong piece of luggage.

Check behind you after you exit our vehicles when you are dropped off at your final destination.

 It’s easy to leave bags, cameras, phones, tablets, glasses, medicine, and other items in the back seats, under the seats, or inside the pockets.  

It’s important to check carefully that you’ve collected ALL your belongings and left NOTHING behind in the vehicle because once your driver leaves Civitavecchia or Fiumicino Airport, it is very difficult to detour back from the highway as detours are few and far in between and drivers usually have other scheduled services following yours and may not be able to return in time to deliver your forgotten items.

10  Inform the company of your total luggage count: Check in suitcases and carry ons together.

This is important to ensure you will be issued a large enough vehicle, and depending on your party size and the total number of luggages you may be required to upgrade to a larger vehicle (such as from a car for up to 3 passengers to a minivan), or if you are a party of 7-8 with extra luggage you may need 2 vehicles if your total luggage exceeds the maximum luggage capacity of a minivan (up to 8 suitcases and up to 8 carry ons together).
