I am doing the last 7 night with DH and we are leaving DDs (20, 18) at home this time, so they were asking me what was available for them to pick out for me to buy them

Thanks! I hope you have a fantastic cruise! I will be meeting up with some fantastic cruisemates of yours during a break in their tour actually while you are docked in Athens! I never would have imagined a DISmeet in Athens! :D You are more than welcome to join, but I am assuming you would have already made plans. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know!
Hello,

I will see what I can do, we plan to buy some shop stuff if it is good, Athens, we do have a trip organised with PK Travel to max our time there.


Thank you.

Day one. Travel. Started off well to the airport and check in, but flight delay due to (1) incoming flight delay and (2) reported thunderstorms at Barcelona meaning Spanish Air traffic delays at destination and restricted slots. Plans on arrival cut any rest time out so we will have a transfer to our hotel checkin and then after a quick freshen up go to the Hard Rock for dinner where we have a reservation. Plans post dinner are to walk La Rambala subject to the rain. We embark the cruise on Saturday. First tip of the day! It rains in Spain, yes it's normally hot in summer but bring a Mac or poncho and have plan B touring plans for rain say Sagrada familia ! Present flight we could see the captain going around the thunder clouds locally as we got into Spanish airspace . We landed at 15.25 local that's about 40 mins late. Border control and to baggage reclaim at 15.40 nothing up yet.first thing seen through border control was a DCL rep. In fact there was another DCL rep at our baggage claim and plenty outside we were out and in our private transfer by 15.55 on the way to the city.

I look forward to following your trip report. We just got off the ship yesterday (Venice to Barcelona) and are almost home now. We did this exact cruise last year with the stops in Athens, Kusadasi, and Mykonos. Should be an amazing cruise. Hope we left everything ship shape for you!

BTW, what hotel did you stay on your pre night and did you like it? Sorry if you mentioned it already - I'll blame the sleepiness. I'm still on Barcelona time - 4:30am.

Thanks for the pictures of the merchandise, it is pretty much what I was looking for. :D I am devouring every word and photo on your blog but do not want to 'sully' it with my inane comments, here I feel much safer

To the PP, I believe they were staying at the Hotel Jazz, there are some photos up on the blog.

A great day in Villefrance, Visited Monaco, Antibes, St Paul De Vance Nice, lots of updates,

Can post the photos here till post cruise as I have gone through 50% of the largest Internet package. In a day! Internet good photos large.

The best photos will be posted post the cruise,

The ones we can post are by my cell IPhone to elsewhere, As I have a European coverage on that but those photos are not great.

Andrew,
Gorgeous pics of Barcelona. This must be costing a fortune with internet charges… just blog what you can and we will have to wait for pics…
