Your trip has been so amazing, thank you for taking the time to write a trip report. We will be going on the 10 day med cruise Sept. 8, 2010 and your photos have made us so excited about our upcoming trip.

Have really enjoyed your report and some gorgeous photos.

Your hotel in Barcelona looks so "rich" - might have to price that one up.

Thanks again

I know my med cruise will be here before I know it (9/8) and I have been trying to plan clothing accordingly. Do you have advice on what to take? I was thinking two capri's, one brown cargo pants, one pair black leggings, several tops to match, two short dresses and one long dress and four pairs of shoes. Too much? not enough?

It was very plush! We found a great special on Travelzoo. It was 97 Euros a night.

September will be hot! Remember that when you are packing. You can't wear shorts in some places (i.e. the Vatican), but they would be nice to have when you can. That sounds about right as far as how much though. I did laundry once, on a port day when we were back early.

I was wondering how hot it was going to be - I'll be sure to pack a couple pair of shorts - they don't take up too much room.

What a wonderful trip report. I've taken many notes. The DCL Med cruise is definitely on our to do list! Thanks mainly to the wonderful trip reports from this year's cruisers. Are you going to do the Alaska cruise?

Thanks for taking me along as you reported about your trip.

Wow! What a fantastic trip report!!! We are booked for the Magic's Mediterranean cruise next August and I CANNOT WAIT!! Would you mind posting the name of the shuttle bus "Not to take"? I just want to make sure we DO NOT book that one!!!! Also, which hotel did you stay in prior to the cruise? Which of the 2 hotels did you prefer? Just wondering, as we've never been to Barcelona, and I want to make sure we stay someplace clean/nice. I don't minde spending more money for a place that I know is clean, safe and nice.

Thanks in advance! LOVED your trip report!!!

I will! It was A2B transfers. We have read many good reviews, but our experience was a nightmare. I sent them an email and they apologized for it being a nightmare (their words) and promised to look into it. I never heard another word.

We stayed at Hotel Novotel Barcelona City the first night. I liked them both for different reasons. Avenida Palace was such a great location. Literally one block from Los Ramblas. Novotel was brand spanking new and very modern, plus the rooms slept 4.

I probably would give the edge to Avenida because of its location, but if you have a family of 4, you'll have to split up.

Edit: Since this report has been bumped a few times, I wanted to say that A2b transfers refunded all of our money (even for the transfer to the ship that was late but otherwise fine) about a year after. Long story how it came about, but they definitely made it right. They also told me they have changed managers and suppliers.
