    Hi. Im in the UK. We're flying Ryan Air to Reus. It's about an hour away (salou) but we have relatives that are going to pick us up at Reus and take us to the port the next day.
    The flights are £29.99 one way per person plus £15 for bags. :)

    I flew to that airport before, for another destination and imho its quite a long way away, and any amount saved on airfare, is lost on transfers to Barcelona.

    Barcelona airport has taxis buses and trains to the city

    I have seen cheaper BA fares from London City airport to Barcelona.

    Dont need a code just go to the BA website and put in either all London airports or London city.

    PORT; Moll D'Adossat terminal, to the south of Barcelona.

    Andrew DEREK thanks for posting the pics. How does one actually get to the passenger terminal? My sister in law will be driving us. Do we have to get special transport to the terminal or can cars just drive up? How do we get to the ship? Sorry but Im a virgin cruiser here. A bit ignorant to the ways of the cruising world.

    Its very well signposted, if you didn't have a car there is a port shuttle, but unless things have changed you can drive up and drop off, near the port, taxis and coaches get closer.

    Follow the photo I posted above, the road that goes over the bridge to the terminal, and also that google map. The port is signposted from the motorway, B10, bottom left in my photo, and it will say Disney Magic, but you will not be able to miss it.

    Oh I see. I was under the impression the pax terminal was a good distance away from where DCL is docked. OK as long as I know we can get there without too much hassle it will give me one less thing to worry about.
    cheers.

    Its very easy to get to, use the Grand Marina hotel as a landmark as well, you will not have any problem, in 07 from central City took me 10 minutes.

    To be honest no need to write done if you head to the South of the city and seafront, you cant miss the ship.
