http://www.marriott.com/hotels/trave...rcelona-hotel/ is the link to the website. There are directions there and a map. Meets start at 7 until... definitely come and go, just a chance to start putting names and faces together and meet in person. The Friday one will break up around 8 for those who are going to the Magic Fountain together, but those who aren't are welcome to hang out or move the party elsewhere.

There are pictures of the lobby area on the website... It looks like it will work as a good place to meet. Hope you can make it one of the nights.

Thanks for the info and the quick response as we leave tomorrow evening, on the flight over the pond. We are planning on Thursday evening and then going to Magic Fountain.

I haven't visited this thread in forever due to some family reasons but I am staying at the Hilton but I am not flying in until the 14, didn't have that much extra vacation time.

You just noticed that? It's been driving me nuts the entire time. And the person that started this hasn't posted since that first page, I think.

Hi Tozzie!

Do you have anything planned there yet?

Friday we have our Sagrada tix for 11 AM and based on Ame's report via Facebook, you'd better not be late for your time! So we aren't planning anything for before that. We bought our tix online - is it too late to get yours if you really want to do it and avoid the lines? We wouldn't do it if we had to wait in a long line (darn that WDW for spoiling us with Fast Passes). Then we want to go over to the Barri Gothic area and see a few things there, then rest, take care of whatever DCL administrative things we can do (like checking in if they have that at the hotel like they've had in the past), and just hanging out til time to meet and head over to the Magic Fountain.



No, we're not - we don't attend them, just go to Topsiders instead ever since our first cruise when one of the boys had way too much chicken and mac/cheese and puked his way out of the dining room all over DH's suit pants and dress shoes. My guys don't want to dress up, and getting them into long pants / collared shirts for dinner will be enough of an ordeal. We are one of those families that you will see in the dining room with shorts on if dinner is right as we come back from a shore excursion. But not on formal or semi-formal night (which of course are typically sea days so no worries). Nothing special for Pirate Night either. We tend to be more "observers" than participants.
Sounds like a great itinerary!
I was thinking about doing some pre-booking from home, but decided to play it by ear. Don't know how tired we will be, etc.
I think I will check with the concierge to see if we can still get tix to Sagrada or the flamenco show when we get there.

We used to go all out for the Formal nights - rental tux, etc. We like to get formal family pictures, and this was about the only time we had to do that. But the guys (DH and DS) are just going with their dress suits this time. Easier than doing the cruiseformalwear.com.

Looking forward to the Monsters University! Have already seen Iron Man 3, Lincoln, Wreck-It Ralph, Finding Nemo, Brave,Avengers, Tangled, and Frankenweenie, though. Was hoping for Superman Man of Steel, but didn't think that was likely, since it is a Warner Bros. movie, and not Disney.

Have to admit; I kept thinking "something" was not quite right with that title, but couldn't figure out what! DUH!

Wonder what happened to armyferret? Her ticker seems to indicate that she is still going on this cruise.

We were on another cruise meet thread with something similar - someone started the thread, then disappeared . . .

Cell phone in Europe?

Here's another quick question:

How are you all handling cell phones?

Are there pre-paid plans/cards that can be used for your personal cell phones in Europe?

We all have various phones (kids with iPhones, DH with an Android, me with a regular phone) through Verizon.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Oh, and don't forget to call your credit card companies and tell them you will be in Europe! We were in Chicago for the weekend, and the fraud unit initially denied our charge to the 7-11 there, until we verified that was us!
