Everyone enjoy themselves!

That's a shame.

So long as you have a fab time on whichever holiday you go on.

How was Cars Land?? It wasn't open when we were there last February. From what I've seen on line it looks like a great attraction!!

We LOVED it. Radiator Springs Racers was sooo much fun! And Maters Junkyard Jamboree turned out to be my DH and DD(7)s favorite ride! It was much funner than it looks. I wasn't super impressed with Luigis, but we were the first ones on the ride that day and it wasn't even half full so that might have had something to do with it. Carsland itself was really neat, especially at dusk when they light it up. It looks just like it does in the movie. We ate at Flo's V8 and it was yummy!

I'm so glad that I also have a trip to WDW at the end of the month to keep me occupied a little bit as well! We do have a few things planned for our cruise but will go into full planning mode after we come back. We're just starting to look into airfare which is much higher than I'd hoped. But we'll do it if we have to! We plan to fly in to be there on Thursday before the cruise and then we're going to head back the same day that we get back into port on the 8th.

Beware Hilton Diagonal Mar Hotel

Well, all I can say for those of you booking your own rooms, be careful doing it at the Hilton.....

When we did the last Med cruise, we came in the day before and had booked a PRE-PAID reservation at the Hilton Diagonal Mar Hotel. We arrived at about 7 PM and were told there were no rooms available.

They DID arrange for us to stay somewhere else, and got us there, but we lost over an hour doing this. We were hot, tired, hungry and grumpy and it didn't make our day to find out after taking a cab there, we had to go back basically where we had started!

Just an FYI for any of you out there looking..........

WOW, that sounds horrible! Thanks for the heads up!


On a happy note...My DH got the vacation dates we needed! So, let the planning begin!

Well since we found out DH has the vacation dates we needed I've started my research and planning phase. Today I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights prior to the cruise at the Renaissance Barcelona airport hotel. Tomorrow I will be researching private shore tours.

I'm booked at the renaissance airport hotel too...I stayed there last year when my flight got cancelled and it was really nice!

However...finding the shuttle area where you get the shuttle is a little difficult...the airport staff was less than willing to assist me but it was almost midnight so maybe everyone was tired!!!

We're staying at the Renaissance airport for two nights before the cruise too!! We are hoping to get there in the afternoon on Thursday and just chill for the rest of the night, then wake up the next morning and do some sightseeing on Friday. We booked the cruise package that offers breakfast and transportation to the port. We haven't booked our flights yet but that's our plan!

That's our plan too, we will be getting in Thursday (morning if we fly through Newark, afternoon if we fly through Frankfurt). I think it will take at least a day to recover from traveling from the west coast to Europe and then if we are up for it we will be doing some sightseeing on Friday (which is also DH's b-day).
Now I just have to figure out what "the plan" is for each port day.
