Default Ship Barelona to Rome or vice versa?

My partner and I, both retired, are planning our first trip to Europe and are searching for some cruise or ship from Barcelona, SP to Rome, IT or Rome to Barcelona - one way either way - sometime during the last week in April to the first week in May, 2007. Any assitance will be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Ray & Al,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

I'm sorry I don't have a specific answer for you , but I Googled "Rome to Barcelona Cruise" and came up with a lot of hits. I'd suggest you try it!

I hope someone who's done this kind of cruise can help you more .

Hope you find the cruise you're looking for and have a wonderful time!

Default Decisions

We should all have these problems...decisions,decisions,decisions..lol There is no definite answer...which would you prefer to spend a pre-cruise in Barcelona or in Rome.. and what are the ports included.. We did a pre-cruise in Barcelona pre--trans-Atlantic and loved it..had a great guide and hotel..Now,in Rome the port is very from the port, but dependig on when you were going... there is so much to see..we hired a guide to go to Tuscany.. and that was the #1highlight of our cruise..If you need more info please write..parrotmom@comcast.net

Thanks, Fern, for the Google info, but I did Google and found lots of cruises where Barcelona or Rome was a port-of-call but did not find a cruise that originates at Barcelona (or Rome) and ends in Rome )(or Barcelona) - except for that cruise line that appeals to persons on the Forturne 500 list - and we aren't on that list.

I called several of the popular cruise lines, but it was indicated to me that they don't book persons for part of a cruise (from Barcelona to Rome or vice versa) - just the whole cruise.

I thought there might be a "local" shipping company (in Barcelona or the port that serves Rome) that might offer service for passengers from Barcelona to Rome or vice versa.

Thanks for the info!

Most likely we'll fly from Barcelona to Rome!

Thanks for sharing!
