Has anyone arranged for a pre-cruise or post-cruise stay? If so what kind of airfare are you getting. Celebrity is not offering any pre-cruise packages as they are using charter airfare. We are having a fit trying to get airfare home with in the price range that the cruise is booked at. Any one have any ideas? We are stumped at this time. How long does it normally take to get off the boat in Barcelona and to the airport? The Millie is scheduled to dock at 7:00am. I can get airfare at 10:40, but that might be too tight of a connection.
Having the same issue, here, relative to the 8/11 cruise. I've currently got air booked through Celebrity, but would like to extend in Barcelona. So far the airfare is prohibitive. I'm hoping it will drop before it is too late to change my booking. If I get any better info, I'll post it.
Barcelona is a wonderful port and trying to get away and onto a plane would be a mistake. However, if you must leave Spain, the airport is 8 miles away and you would have no trouble with a 10A or 11A departure. The ships there clear local customs within 90 minutes.
Cabs are right at pierside. 15 minutes has you at the airport.
Get a Frommers guide to Spain or Barcelona at your local bookstore. Well worth the investment.
We sail her just after you do but have done Barcelona many times before via cruiseship. Safe. clean, beautiful and so much fun.
