Exactly! Where were all of these people when I asked if I should book a 10:45 am flight? omg.

People posted that DCL had a little continental breakfast area the last morning for guests with "early flights". They defined early flights as being before 9 or 10. Others chimed in that they had an 11:00 flight and had plenty of time to sit around.

I love DCL transfers & originally planned to book them but didn't because I later heard DCL won't provide transfers for anyone with a flight before 11. So I'm looking into private transfers; I also heard the queue for taxis is crazy long. Also I don't like how taxi drivers drive. I like the idea of walking off the ship and seeing someone with a sign with our name on it.

I've heard that DCL arrives in Barcelona in the wee hours of the night so the ship is cleared early. We won't be coming from Gibraltar as one pp mentioned. We are on the 7-nt Med so the last full day onboard is a sea day(Friday). Our last port (Thurs) is Naples. I need to be at work Monday & I really liked the idea of spending Sat night in my own bed & having a day to unpack & adjust back to ET before returning to work.

I have read good things about Barcelona Airport Transfers and also Barcelona Day Tours. I was wondering what time I should say we'll be picked up.
I emailed a request to BDT with a 7:30 pick up time and they confirmed with an 8:30 pick up. This is way too late imo. That is already cutting into our 3 hrs arrival time.
