I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

It's by the airport so not near Las Ramblas or any tourist sites but it has several other advantages! There is a free shuttle that picks you up at the airport (and I like the idea of not having to pay for a shuttle or taxi), it has a free shuttle to Las Ramblas and back (so we can still do some sightseeing) and there is a cruise package that gets you free breakfast in the morning and a shuttle to the port. If we were staying longer we probably wouldn't stay so far away from the action but for one night I think it works for us!

Now we just have to wait for flights to come out to make sure that we'll arrive early enough on Friday to see everything we want to see!
We have only to book the return flight because we're doing, EBTA, but we will spend at least 1 night post cruise. I'll be checking this hotel. It seems many of our possible return flights are leaving Barcelona between 6 & 9 AM so that means a very early wake up. It will be good not to be that far from the airport.
Shuttles would be a great perk!

So, we will be coming into Barcelona and leaving on BtB cruises. Do you think that Disney may offer day excursions around Barcelona on June 1? We called DCL and they only mentioned 3-4 day Pre-cruise trips, which we obviously can't do. If not, we will have to spend 2 nights post cruise. We want to see some of Spain, Barcelona & not just pass through.

Enjoy your cruise, shame about Disney but as long as you have a fabulous cruise then that is all that counts.

When I priced other cruises I just couldn't find anything cheaper (for some reason). Maybe it is because I live in the UK??

Can I be cheeky and ask what cruise your are going on?
We are going on the Carnival Sunshine - $2400 for the 3 of us and 9 days. Hope i don't get in trouble for posting that

That's really good, maybe when my boys are older I would consider it. I haven't found anything that cheap though.

My boys are looking forward to the Disney cruise experience more than just the cruise, so right now another company wouldn't get passed them.

Hope you have a fabulous cruise (sure you will).

Welcome to the obsession of counting sleeps. I have an app on my phone called "shipmate" that counts down the days or hours.

My 7 year son says that I am obsessed with Disney.
