Cruise In the Mediterranean. Venice. P.5.

Capi4ca • 5 minutes read • May 17th, 2016
We arrived in

Venice

 in the morning. We had to leave our cabin at 8 a.m.
We were given green strips for our luggage, which corresponded with our check-out time at 9.45 a.m. 
The docking and unloading process once we reached Venice lasted from 8.45 a.m. to 10.45 a.m. We left in groups to avoid crowding.
While the bars and other areas of the ship were still open, our cards stopped working at 1 a.m., so anything we wanted had to be bought with cash.  
This was our view that morning:

Seagulls appeared. Venice was close!

Early birds took to the beach for their morning workout:

Another island was under construction!

And here, the islands appeared:

Houses seemed to stand right on the water, and a plane was flying in the distance:

Iconic outlines appeared in the distance. It was Venice!

Despite the early morning, and it being a weekend, there were a lot of boats on the water!

We made our way to the port:

We arrived in Venice. Below, you can see the famous bell tower that stands 328 feet (100 meters) tall:

But Venice, of course, was full of canals and bridges. This seagull managed to get in the frame just in time!

These two boxes on the water were used for public transport. All transport in Venice was via the water!

Here, you can see the bridge getting closer:

We were heading toward the center of Venice:

The 

Piazza San Marco was getting closer

We sailed closer to the port:

We were led to the port by a tugboat:

Seagulls bask on the roof:

And here we were at the port of Venice, but still on the liner (

Costa Victoria

). We went to the upper deck, waiting for our turn to exit the ship.

Water buses hurried to the port:

The ship emptied and we waited.

We left the liner
At 2 p.m. the liner would greet a new set of passengers, departing at 6 p.m. for a new voyage along the same route. Later, we saw the ship passing us while we were walking along the waterfront in Venice!

Meanwhile, we went to collect our suitcases. They lay in the hall of the port, grouped by label color: green, blue, yellow, etc.
I immediately saw my new blue suitcase, decorated with palm trees! A good reason to luggage with bright, vivid colors!  
We went to the booking office and bought our tickets for the water bus (6.5 Euros + 3 Euros for luggage).

We sailed straight to our hotel:

After 20 minutes we had already arrived at Piazza San Marco, then we went straight to the hotel.
But our journey was not over!
