Luggage

All luggage must be securely packed and clearly labeled with passenger’s full name, ship’s name, cabin number and date of sailing. Luggage tags will be included with your e-Docs. We recommend that travel documents (cruise tickets, passport, and visa), valuables, and medication be hand carried in your carry-on bag. Neither Star Clippers, Ltd., nor Star Clippers Americas, nor Bare Necessities are responsible for any loss, theft or damage to passenger’s luggage or personal property.

Flights

This cruise is round-trip from the Port of Venice, Italy beginning Saturday, June 25, 2022 and returning on Saturday, July 9, 2022. The closest airport to the port with international and domestic flights is Marco Polo International Airport (VCE). This airport is located in Venice, Italy and is 10 miles from the pier – approximately a 20-30 minute drive from the Port of Venice. Arriving a day early comes highly recommended to ensure you do not miss the boat. When scheduling your return flight home, we recommend scheduling after noon.

Transportation

More information on Star Clipper transfers will be emailed when passengers receive their booking numbers and e-Tickets via e-mail approximately 30 days prior to the cruise.

Alternatives to Star Clippers Transfers

A land taxi from Venice’s Marco Polo Airport to the San Basilio terminal is currently priced at €45. To be safe, allow at least 30 minutes for the trip.

A water taxi from Marco Polo Airport to the San Basilio terminal can range from €100-125 but can easily be shared by up to 10 people.  You will find water-taxi ticket booths in the arrivals halls of the airport, after you’ve left baggage claim.

Spending Money

Onboard Account

Your cruise includes all meals and all beverages excluding premium brands of alcohol, champagne and wine*.  Gift shop items, spa services, some shore excursions, and laundry services are additional.  All items and services purchased on board will be charged to your shipboard account. During the embarkation process the ship will take your credit card information and give you a key card. This is your stateroom key, personal identification card, and also used to charge services and products provided on board the ship. Each account can be settled in cash or credit card on the final day of the cruise. The following credit cards are accepted: Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Personal checks and Discover are not accepted on board. Please note that the currency used on board the ship is in Euro (€).

*French or Italian house wines, house liqueurs, house spirits, cocktail of the day, non-alcoholic cocktails, soda by the glass, draft beer, bottled water, espresso and cappuccino are complimentary for each guest for the duration of the cruise. Premium brands of alcohol, premium wines and champagne are not included.

It is also a good idea to bring along Euros in smaller bills for miscellaneous use when only a small amount of currency is needed. Cash machines are available at the airport and around the cities and usually offer the best exchange rates.

 

Personal Funds and Credit Cards

American Express, Visa and MasterCard are accepted at most major hotels, shops and restaurants, as well as on board the ship. ATM machines are a good source for obtaining foreign currency. When traveling abroad, it is often a good idea to telephone your credit card companies in advance of departure and inform them of your travel plans. Doing so may prevent your card from being “tagged” as stolen and may prevent inconveniences.

Travel Insurance

If you have not already done so, we ask that you purchase trip cancellation insurance. We do not want you to be one of our unfortunate passengers who does not purchase trip insurance and find themselves unavoidably having to cancel the cruise. Protect your vacation investment. Travel insurance can also reimburse you for any medical expenses incurred while onboard, baggage delays, and lost luggage. For more information, call TripAssure at 800-423-3632.
