We flew into BCN from Newark, NJ and sat with a couple who was also on the MedCruise. They retold their experience several years ago on the inaugural DCL MedCruise where they and other passengers were staying pre-cruise. I believe it was at the Renaissance Marriott in BCN. Well, they met up with some other couples who were also staying there and decided to go to breakfast.
A taxi driver convinced them to take his taxi. As a result, he drove them down the street and around the block to an alley where they were all robbed of their money and passports.
From what they told me, they never take any non-DCL sponsored transportation or excursions because of this incident. They also try to walk everyone.
I empathize. It's so terrible. It dampens the whole vacation experience.
That's awesome! Remus must be wonderful! Wouldn't it be fun if our dogs could have joined us in our walking treks across the towns. I just kept thinking how much fun Max would have loved hiking along with us. But, I know that the heat would have killed him as well as flying over in a plane.
Thanks for the kind words about our magnets. DD10 was so sad. It also made her angry. So, I told her that a note on the door would be good. We also spoke to the Guest Services and they just blew it off like it was no big deal. To my DDs, it was a big deal.
I loved the FE gifts. They were so useful and creative.
I hope that your family had a safe trip back home and enjoying the memories, pictures, and souvenirs.
I wish that I purchased olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Maybe next time.
Have a great week!
