Is it a private boat or part of a large excursion?

It takes up to 10 people. I had fat fingers before - Angelo's is the name. You can check it out on trip advisor. It had some great reviews last year and I thought this might be a better way way for the kids to see the 5 towns. Hiking in the heat might do them in! Kelly.

I want to say 12:30. Might be noon. We booked a 12:35 based on DCL's recommendation.

This is the quote from DCL from when I log in and look at the travel info:

Please allow ample time for all your travel connections. We recommend the following flight-time guidelines:
Latest arrival time to Barcelona International Airport on Embarkation Day: 1:15 p.m.
Earliest departure time from Barcelona International Airport on Debarkation Day: 12:30 p.m.

That being said, in 2010, they asked those with flights earlier than "x" hour to identify themselves to guest services for early ship departure arrangements. Didn't apply to me, but there are those on here that did so.

I haven't but I read a great review on this through a blog post. The name of the blog slips my mind...if you google it I'm sure it will come up. It's a lady from SF who travels alot with her 2 kids. It's probably called Travel with kids or something like that

I remember reading a trip report from 2010 about a family renting a yacht for the day in Malta. Does anyone have any idea about that?

TIA!

DCL won't offer transfers from port to airport for any guests whose flight is earlier than 11:00am.

Can you charge euros to your onboard account or do you need cash? I think I remember it being cash but thought I'd check. Thanks!

As I recall, Guest Services will exchange currency. So you need cash.

Passport Reminder

This came up on my cruise meet thread, but I thought I would post it here just in case. .

If you don't have to take your passport off the ship (and as I recall on other cruises I did not generally have to take it) you might want to have a copy on you.

This will be especially helpful if you decide to buy some costly piece of glass in Venice or some other high priced "remembrance" along the way. They will need the passport info to fill out the VAT forms at the merchant.

(It could also be helpful if you miss the boat, but that's another problem)

What about passport cards? Can you take that onshore and leave your passport booklet on the ship?
