We were just notified that the Marriott nearest the airport will not be park of Marriott when we will be staying there. We've been given the choice of 2 Renaissance hotels, one in the city, and 1 farther out. We've never been to Barcelona. We thought we would be doing land excursions that we will book through the hotel. We have 2 nights in Barcelona.

Does anyone know anything about either hotel. We had booked the one at the airport strictly due to convenience of flying out.

Thanks for any info.
Bobbi

Good luck there - we went two years ago, had a confirmed PRE-PAID reservation - got to the hotel at about 5 PM and guess what?? They had over-booked and didn't have a room for us. Now, mind you, they DID move us to another hotel, but it wasted about an hour and a half of our time, and it was truly a bad situation, as we were only staying that one night in Barcelona.....needless to say, I was NOT a happy camper.

Join a Florence Shore Excursion

Hi all,

My wife and I are on this sailing. Our first (and maybe only) European vacation. We are in our early 60s. Looking for folks to join us on an excursion to Florence. I have setup an excursion at http://www.shareashoreexcursioninitaly.com. Look for the "GODFREY FLORENCE " excursion. This excursion can take 8 folks maximum. The more that sign up, the cheaper per person. If 8 people signup and go, it will be 90 Euros each.

Thanks,

Stan

It is with a sad heart that I have to say...we switched cruises. After researching and planning I was beginning to realize that for a family of 5 this vacation was going to cost us well over $10,000. Which is not an option for us. So, Europe will have to wait. We moved it to the 8 night sailing out of Galveston, so we will get one extra night on the ship and we get to go to Castaway Cay and Disney World.
BTW, if anyone is interested...I just canceled our hotel reservation. We had two rooms booked for the two night before the cruise at the airport Rennaissance.

It's the airport Renaissance that will no longer be part of the Marriott chain. This is what DH received in an e-mail
With reference to your current room reservation at the Renaissance Barcelona Airport Hotel (xxxxxxxxxx)from June 08th to June 10th, 2013 we need to inform you that this property will no longer be operated under the Renaissance name and will no longer be part of Marriott International as of November 1st, 2012.

That's a shame that you would be joining us, I hope you make it to Europe one day.
I can see why you would put it off for another time with the flight prices, I am fortunate enough not to have to worry about flights.

Have a fab cruise out of Galveston!
