Hello Guys,

I have a question:
I'm planning to stay 2 nights in Barcelona after the cruise, but since we are arriving back to Barcelona in the early morning (7-9 am?), then do I need to book for an additional night? Anyone knows a hotel that allows for a really early check-in?

I can't answer your question, but they have a few places where you may be able to store your luggage if desperate. There is a charge but I think it is very reasonable.

Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while and thought I'd introduce myself I'll be sailing with my parents and this will be our second Disney Cruise having sailed on the Dream in November. We've booked 4 nights in Barcelona pre-cruise so really looking forward to doing some major sightseeing.
Can't believe it's less than 4 months away now

We are! Our kids aren't old enough for the DCL excursion that does it, so we might have to do a private tour. Some of my family is meeting us for this cruise and my aunt is looking into private tours for that stop.

It's maybe worth checking if the hotel you're staying in will let you store your luggage?

The time's flying by now! Where are you staying pre-cruise? We'll be doing 2 nights before ourselves at Universal Hotel

How old are your kids? My DD is 9 and also not old enough for DCL excursion. I have hired a private guide for Pompeii and trying to decide whether we can squeeze in Vesuvius as well.

My girls turn nine the day after we get off. I don't think it takes very long to hike up, if you're only doing Pompeii for the day you should have plenty of time.

The same one lol. The one right beside Para-lel metro station. Can't wait - I think we're going to do the hop-on hop-off bus for a few days and going to try to take the train up monserrat too.

We're doing the same. BTW, I've read consistently that the city-affiliated blue HOHO bus oversells all the time and that it is better to buy tix from the red HOHO bus which is privately owned (less lines, less tix sold, same routes).

We're planning on using this one http://www.city-sightseeing.com/tour...andingposition is that the red one you've mentioned?

I see that your final payment due date is next week. Once your cruise opens up online excursion booking, can you look something up for me? I'm trying to decide between 2 excursions in Villefranche and would love to know the actual times that these excursions are offered. So once you're done booking all of your own stuff & when you have time, could you list the choices of meeting times of these excursions?:

Highlights of Monaco and Top Car Museum $62 (ages 10 and up) 4 to 4.5 Hours

Nice and Monaco $169 (ages 10 and up) 8 to 8.5 hours



Our tours of Italy will be long days so I'm not sure I want another 8 hr day in Villefranche. Also a huge difference in price for a family of 4.
I realize the time offerings may be different between June & August cruises but this will help settle my mind. This cruise is taking over my brain and it's so hard to think of anything else. Our final payment is due April 19 which just seems so far away!

Thanks in advance for your help!!
Any platinum cruisers who can answer my question?
Thanks!

Yes that's the one, you must say hi if you see us, also noticed you're in Cheshire we're in Manchester so it will be the northerners in the Unversal

That's good to know, I love using the metro in cities but after Paris last summer my mum has told me she refuses to do them in Barcelona so we'll give the hoho a go
