All lines have switching points at Placa de Catalunya which is the "top" of Las Ramblas. Both busses hit all the major tourist points it's just if you want something slightly further afield you need to see whether one company suits better than the other.

2 companies - www.barcelonacitytour.cat
or barcelona bus touristic (could only find this as a direct website in Spanish)

Please Please check the list (link in my signature) and make sure all of your information is correct!



7020 please!






Gotcha!



Which room for FE? Thanks!


As always, the "main" information for FE is in Post 363 Page 25 which I update periodically with new information and the "list" is always in my signature.

NEW INFORMATION:

I wanted to mention that rather than have gifts distributed all on the first day, you might want to consider giving your gift on other days of the cruise. Some gifts are "for" the cruise and should be delivered on the first or second day. However, some gifts such as: keychain from your state, candy bar, etc. are gifts that "could" be delivered throughout the cruise. It is nice to find gifts throughout the cruise. This by no means is this mandatory. It is all up to the individual as to when you deliver gifts. I just like to always throw that out there as a suggestion!
7020 please!

Hi there, Las Ramblas is the "backbone" of the city, running from the Port Vell area north to the Place de Catalunya which is a centrally located square in the city where the red and blue line buses start from. Las Ramblas then heads north out of the PdC again until it meets Diagonal Avenue. The blue tour takes you all the way out to Camp Nou, the Barcelona FC football ground and north again to Parc Guell which is worth a visit. From Parc Guell, the blue tour takes you to La Sagrada Familia and back to PdC in the centre.
We managed the green and blue routes but the red route was suspended due to thunderstorms flooding and bringing trees down. The red route goes up the hill to Olympic Park.
I hope that helps.
Regards
F

Only a couple days left to join FE!!! As always, please check the list for your information. Link in my signature. I don't trust myself. It makes me nervous. I had to cut and paste a lot recently as a result of receiving room numbers. I have everyone's room number. If there have been or are changes in the future, please let me know. AND....FE info page Post 363 Page 25.

One other thing. This has been a problem in the past so I want to pass this information on. People have become so fond of our Fish Extenders that they bring their own, for their own use IE: mail, notes etc. Don't assume that if you see a fish extender that it is a fish extender on our list. You WILL run out of your fish gifts before you are finished with your rounds.

Take the green line, transfer to red and get off at Placa de Catalunya.

For all of you DCL veterans: Can anyone explain to me how you can "book" a certain stateroom. My mom and I went through a travel agent and received "GTY" category rooms. We've received our room assignments and my mom is across the hall from me, which is great. I, however, appear to have a connecting room so my mom inquired, with the travel agent, to see if it were possible to book that room (of course, it's a category upgrade but she was willing to pay for it). The travel agent said that it would be a "GTY upgrade" and Disney doesn't take stateroom requests for GTY. So how do people book specific staterooms?

Also, on shore excursions, do we need to take our passports along?

Book early and often haha! Actually if you book any other category than a GTY you should be able to see a list of available staterooms within that category.

No, you will just need to ket to the world card to get off & on the ship. You may wish to carry some ID if you make credit card purchases or are collecting independently booked tickets. I often take a copy of my passport just incase something happens & I need consular assistance.

One slight correction: Everyone over 18 MUST have a picture ID to get off and then back on the ship for excursions. They will check it at the excursion meeting place on board, and check again when disembarking. They will also check hen embarking.

The first couple of cruises, we put our drivers licenses in the KTTW holder pocket. Then we learned the a copy of your passport page is adequate. Now we have a laminated copy of our passport ID. I scanned them in and then printed color copies the same size as the KTTW card. Never had a problem using that, and we kill several birds at nice: Our passports are stored in the safe in our stateroom, along with our drive t's licenses, and we have a copy of our passports, which the State Department recommends you always have with you when overseas.
