We're also thinking of doing the HOHO Bus for the two days before the cruise. They have two companies offering this, both have two routes, so you can do one route each day if you like. We haven't decided which company yet.

After the cruise we're planning on going to portaventura for two or three days

So we're thinking of renting a car on Saturday and drive to PA. Spend Saturday, Sunday at PA and drive back to the airport and fly home on Monday. Kids are due back at school on Tuesday.

Ok, nice. We are going to Paris for 3 days,and I want to surprise my daughter with a day in Disneyland Paris. I told her that we can't go because this trip is to expensive and we can't go. She was sad but she understood. I can wait to see her face.

Thank you linetbo and fitness mouse

Linetbo, I'm sure your daughter will be in heaven!

We spent 3 nights post cruise when we did the EBTA last time. Some of our favorites were Sagrada, Camp Nou, taking train to Montserrat, Las Ramblas, Chocolate Museum (your ticket is a chocolate bar), we also did the aquarium. We walked a lot and loved our time in Barcelona.

Just booked our flights! I realised that both weekends of our cruise are holiday weekends, so flights are probably not going to get much cheaper.
And we wanted certain flight times (i know they can still change).

So. Kids have a half day of school on Wednesday, then off to the airport.
Getting to Barcelona in the evening so we have two whole days for touring Barcelona

Flying back monday evening after the cruise.

Now deciding on what we really want to see in Barcelona
