Marine Facade

We were told our cruise dissembarks at Marine Facade. Is this close to Morskoy Voksal? Is there a tram nearby that gets you into the city? Also any idea how much a taxi would cost into city center

Thanks

From this terminal you can get to the city only by taxi, the price to the centre will be about $30 - and about $10 to get to the port gate (which is a serious walk).

Morskoy Vokzal is not far away - but not very easy to reach.

To get back to the terminal from the city you should to arrange it with a particular taxi company from the pool of those having the right to drive into this new port area.

The Taxi dispatcher said Monday that the charge from the terminal to Nevsky Prospect in the city center was a fixed 600 Rubles. If you use the taxi dispatcher, you can get a return fare for the same.

If you are familiar with the metro system you can use a dispatch taxi to the nearest metro station for about 250 Rubles. The 22 Rubles metro fare will take you anywhere in the city.

do you know if transport from the ships to the gate is available on site, or does it have to be arranged ahead of time?

No, you can get a taxi at the dispatch desk right in the terminal.
