Default Carnival Magic 16 Day T/A Oct 28, 2011 Barcelona - Galveston

Carnival Magic 16 Day T/A Oct 28, 2011 Barcelona - Galveston. I am talking to our Great Escapes Club T/A and hope to book this Cruise. Have to check out a few dates and clear some dates as this is over a year away. Like some of you on C/M, we have done a T/A Crossing from Barcelona to Galveston, TX and for the time and $$$ it is a great cruise.

Looking into booking a Cove Balcony on the Starboard side and our T/A says there is several still available.

Will fly DFW to BCN a couple of days ahead of the cruise and stay at The Hotel Continental Palacete HOTEL CONTINENTAL BARCELONA - OFFICIAL WEB SITE again. We like the 3 small balconies with a table and two chairs that over look the street. . .good for drinking coffee or wine.



Last time there we walked down to see the sister hotel of the Palaceta . . .it is much smaller lobby wise but some of the rooms do have balconies . . .but we spent so little time in the room. . .walking, sight seeing, dinning and sitting in the beautiful Palaceta lobby. We were both off our sleeping time zone when we arrived in Barcelona. Don't think we slept more than 3 or 4 hours the first night. We arrived on a Thursday at about 12 noon at BCN Airport. . .got to the hotel about 2 pm and hit the bricks walking. Our cruise was on a Saturday. It took about 25 min in traffic by cab to the pier. The cab will charge you for any bags over 1. Cabs are small. Think about calling ahead and get a SUV and 2 couples split the fare.

Looking forward to being in Barcelona once again and boarding the Carnival Magic. . .We'll be VIP status by then. . .one more CCL cruise to level 10. . .hey we'll get free laundry service.

Anyone one else planning or already booked the Magic?
