I am new to this board, just took the 6/15 Med Cruise. Re spinning, we had two classes offered on the cruise, IIRC on the second and third sea days at 4 PM; sign up was supposed to be 24 hours ahead; I should have asked someone about sign ups and how that worked, because by the time I saw lists sitting out on a table in the front of the gym I was only able to sign up for the wait list and never made it into a class. The bikes were all pushed ihto one area and did not have seats until it was time for the class; I don't know if you asked a CM whether you could set one up and use it outside of the class time. Since I didn't get into a class (nearly made it the second time, person ahead of me on the wait list showed up one minute before the class) I don't know about the pedals. You're smart to be thinking ahead about this, hope you have better luck getting into a class than I did!

We were on the June 15th cruise. When we purchased tickets, we brought our children to the lower ticket office near the Tourist office and Yes! children were free. We paid 48 euros.

Thanks for the info! I thought perhaps I recalled them being "off limits" except for a class, but never really WANTED to use them before, so didn't pay much attention! I appreciate the heads-up on the sign up for the classes. Did they charge extra for the spin class? (Being Disney, that is probably a silly question, but I had to ask! )

OK, got the zip ties! Amusingly, when I first asked the guy where the zip ties were, he took me to Ziplocks (hmm, no . . .).

I'm working tomorrow to get some last minute things done before being gone for so long, and then two of my daughters and I are catching a nonstop flight tomorrow night out of JFK to Venice. We'll get there Tuesday morning and then the third daughter (the middle one), who is already in Europe, will meet us on Wednesday. Major plan is to see the Biennale (this will be my fourth time in Venice, and third Biennale). On Friday we all four fly from Venice to Barcelona, and Saturday I will see you at the meet!

Safe travels, everyone!

Pirates Night on night # 10, July 22nd at Sea
Semi Formal Night on night # 11, July 23rd at Malta

Note this is different from what we had been previously told.

Hey all, just a few days now... Wife and I are leaving on Thursday evening and arriving Friday AM... Think we might just lay low and walk a little bit on Friday, as we are staying 2 nights post-cruise in Barcelona to tour... Getting excited...

One question... How are you all getting from the airport to your hotels? My plan is taxi... Figuring 40 Euro at least (ugh)...

Aerobus. Only 6 euros pp. depends how close the stop is to your hotel though- ours is only 1 block away so it's perfect.

Thanks... I'm actually staying using my HHonors Points at the Hilton Diagonal Mar... Since it's a bit of a ways from the City Centre, I figure a taxi might be fine...

We've been in London since Friday morning and are heading to Barcelona tomorrow afternoon -- after that it will feel so real that we're almost on the Magic!! Our kids are asking about it nonstop at this point. Can't wait to meet many of you on the ship!

Re: zip ties...strangely, I could only find the velcro ones, so we've got those...not a huge deterrent, but not easy pickings, either. *shrug*

The previous trip report cites tons of adults but few children -- consistent with our 2011 experience, when we had a late May sail date. Wondering how many more kids will be on this sailing since many schools are out (all of the US/Canada, but some European schools are in session through this week or next week). Just idle curiosity...won't really impact our planning much, I suspect

Our hotel provides a free shuttle. Was one of the major draws for us - no worries!
