Hello!

Hi all I hope this will post in the right place! I am new to this forum tonight and am just finding my feet!

We will be cruising with u guys in August and although we are not new to DCL (My husband and I cruised with Disney in 2008), I had no idea that a forum like this existed where you can chat 2 fellow cruisers before setting sail! I am bursting with excitement about cruising with DCL again (as you can probably tell by the time of night I'm posting this!) and this seems to be the only place to chat to like minded people - my friends just don't get the whole Disney obsession thing!!

Anyway, I'm rambling now! Our party consists of me, my husband and our 2 sons who will be 13 and 2.

We have booked our flights into Barcalona on the Friday evening and the hotel but have not yet sorted transfers. I was beginning to think it was just me looking in the wrong places for transfer quotes because I can't believe how expensive transport is in Barcelona! From reading your posts I think we might just jump in a taxi when we arrive at the airport and then ask the hotel to call for one in the morning. it doesn't seem to be cheaper to pre-book. If it were just my husband and I we'd give public transport a go but I really don't fancy getting several buses with a toddler!

I'd better stop rambling now - I just wanted to say hello really!

hi Lisa,

I was just wondering if you had found any info re what time the terminal is open for checking in? it might be just me but I'm finding it quite hard to find practical information for Barcelona sailings, especially compared to the abundance of info for USA departures

Hi Emma

Not much luck. I have read a couple of trip reports which say they got to the terminal around 10:30 and boarding was at 12:00. I think that unless we have to pick arrival times on-line then we will probably get there at 10:30.

Hi all! We have been booked on this cruise since bookings opened, but weren't sure if we were still going to be going. Looks like we are, so I thought I'd finally stop by and say Hi!

We have a few other friends and families who are booked on this cruise too. Haven't done the med cruise before, but did the 2010 WBTA cruise, so we've at least boarded the ship in Barcelona once before.

Anyway, its me, my husband, and 2 kids, DS 9 and DD 6. This will be our 9th disney cruise, and 5th on the Magic.

Did anyone start booking online? I booked our excursion in Villefranche and got a Palo dinner & brunch. We're doing private tours in Italy with Rome in Limo.

If there's anyone whose booking window hasn't opened yet and has questions about excursion times, I can look them up for you.

I can't wait to get our docs in the mail!!
