We are JFK to Barcelona on Tuesday with a stop in Paris. We depart around 6:00 pm.
The Magic is almost to Malta -- soon it will be coming to Barcelona for all of us!
Thanks to all of you who are already there and have been posting here and on FB.
Safe travels to everyone!
See you on the Magic!
At the Houston airport where our original flight to Newark was delayed 3 hrs which would have put us in to Newark after the plane to BCN took off.
We had a full flight. We wait listed for the next flight and didn't make that. We are now waiting for a flight that will put us into Newark 10 minutes before our BCN flight leaves. Crossing our fingers we ever see our luggage again!
But the lesson of the day---
As they were calling people for the wait list, a family with reservations came to the front from perhaps the food court as they had various drink cups in their hands and tried to board the plane 8 minutes before scheduled take off. Their seats had already been given away. They had been in the terminal and thought that since they checked in their seats were held forever so they were in no hurry.
They have an international connection in Europe as well. With all the flight thru out the day being wait listed the will have a tuff time making their flight.
My key learning: boarding times are not a suggestion!
Oh man. That scares me. Why was your flight delayed?? That happened to us in 07.
yikes!!!! Fingers crossed you makes your connection in newark!!!!
for your tight connection for the rest of your voyage!
Oh when will this work day end!?! wrapping it all up now leaving in 4 hours. to all who are traveling here's praying all goes well and all of our family member and our luggage gets there in one piece!
A prime example of why never to fly in day of.. Flight in Atlanta delayed.. 1 hr sitting on the plane, now deplaned.. Waiting for new plane
Sat on the Tarmac in Newark 45 minutes waiting for a gate to open.
Rushed in only to find our flight to BCN has been delayed as well-at least an hour.
We are sitting here now waiting to board the rest of the passengers.
Saw a Castaway Club backpack in line in front of us.
But it looks as if we are finally headed to BCN!
Does anyone know when our formal night is?
I think it's the first sea day.
Just an FYI if you haven't gotten to BCN yet. We took the Metro yesterday from Terminal 1. We got in at 4:30 and lugged our luggage from Terminal 1 on a bus to Terminal 2 to the train to Sant station, from Track 14 to Track 3 to our station. It took us until 7 PM to get to our hotel. Long story short, take a cab (if your not trying to save $.)
Our taxi from the airport to the Renaissance Barcelona was 22 euro plus tip.
Do not need to tip taxi drivers, not a European custom
Great day on the HOHO, can´t wait to board tomorrow. Sitting at the Apple store at the West end of Las Ramblas charging our phones on their computers, lol. Didn´t want to bring an adapter (buy one) for a day and a half so we just were hoping to run in to somewhere that had a USB plug in to charge the 'ol iPhones. Hope everyone had a great day in Barcelona!
See you all tomorrow! Seas were rough today, first time in 12 days.
It's boarding day!!!!!
