So, back in 2008 David and I headed to Spain to start our Mediterranean cruise on the Celebty century. We spent four days in Barcelona with our friends, we stayed at the Hilton del mar, and had an making time, we were bumped to the executive lounge floor and was treated like royalty.

We walked the Las Ramblas, enjoyed the market, and had a great time. We visited the Church of the Sacred Family known as the Placa Sagrada Familia, it was truly inspiring, This masterpiece of modernist architecture, built by Antoni Gaudi, pushes the gothic style to the extreme, drawing hundreds of visitors a day.

We also saw the Mirador de Colon, At the end of La Rambla, by the Barcelona harbor, you will find the Mirador de Colon, with a statue of Christopher Columbus on top.

We spent an entire day at Parc Guell, At the entrance to the park, you will find the main staircase with a dragon fountain made of broken bits of glazed ceramic tile (trencadis). This leads to the Salon of the Hundred Columns, which was supposed to be a market place. The columns really number only 84 and are Doric in form. The ceiling of the Salon has tiled mosaics with designs on the ceiling. On top of the salon is a public square with a very large undulating bench in the form of a sea serpent that has backrests adorned with the broken bits of glazed tile. The bench was made by the architect Josep Maria Jujol. At the top of the park is the Closed Chapel, which has a large cross on top of it. This place has very good views of the city. The park was declared a Patrimony of Mankind by the UNESCO in 1984.

We also made our way to Casa Batillo, One of 2 houses by Gaudí in Barcelona that can be toured. truly amazing and worth the visit. go in the mornings, before the site gets crowded with architecture students. your admission price includes an audio guide that is informative, albeit a bit over the top "gaudi was surely one of the most inspirational artists of all time..." located at Passeig de Gràcia

We had an amazing time on the cruise, one I will never forget.

Now this time we are heading to a cruise out of Barcelona headed to Ft. lauderdale, a transatlantic. Something we have never done.

A transAtlantic cruise sounds wonderful. I don't think I could talk Brian into that. Looking forward to living vicariously through your TR.

When we cruised to Hawaii, back 2007, it was 4 days at seas from San Diego to Hawaii, then a week around the islands, then 4 days at sea coming back... David and I feel in love with the days at seas, so we have been talking about a TransAtlantic for awhile and finally decided to do it.

We loved Spain, I always said that I lived someplace outside of the US it would be Spain. I felt so at home there, the people were amazing, and the food was incredible. it is so clean there also.

So we booked this cruise back in Feb of 2012, and I have tried not to think about it too much, but my major concern was the cost of flying on a one way ticket, they are always so expensive.

We booked our standard inside cabin that we like.

Now time to watch the prices and see if they drop and enjoy the planning.

We had a TA booked once and I was worried about this too! We eventually dumped it in favor of something else. I saw someone once who had a great idea. They booked roundtrip airfare from Spain... they took the Spring TA to europe, flew back (first part of their airfare)... stayed home until the 2nd TA then used the rest of their flight and took the TA home. Genius! LOL

As far as nautical disasters go, Corinna pointed it out well in one of her TRs. There have been very few actual disasters, they are just well publicized like Titanic. I think she cited three others and they were all a quarter of a century apart.

I forgot Celebrity had grass on the ship. I can't wait to hear about it. I have thought about doing a TA. I don't know if Chris deal with that time on a ship. I could without a doubt. Spain sounds terrific. TA crossing is such a great way to relax everyday.

I just couldn't get on an airplane to fly to another port that far. I hate flying. I hope you can get through the carpel tunnel soon. It makes it hard to do allot of things. It may calm way down on your trip.

We had thought of this too, and we even thought of buying a round trip and just not taking the second leg.
