I am not sure what other ports you are doing
we are starting a cruise in Venice next year
We will arrive a day early & see some of Venice
I have found you can do a lot of it on your own
This is a good site for info

Barcelona they have the HOHO bus

You might check the Rollcall on CC for more people on you specific cruise

Thanks much lulu for the link to the site. It looks like a lot of good info I wil be needing on this cruise. I have done the roll call on CC but it appears no one else is taking this particular voyage. We are disembarking in Barcelona but don't know how much time we will have to tour. I've heard about the HOHO Bus. Thanks again

Yes some Roll calls do not take off as well as others
I notice there are just a couple of people so far
Maybe it will pick up closer to sailing.

Let's hope so. Any suggestions in buying euro travelers cheques with a good exchange rate? This is all new to me. How do you manage when traveling in Europe

Just wondering how you liked your Mediterranean Cruise last year. We're thinking about doing the same cruise this year. Any advice on transfers to and from ship to aiport in Venice and Barcelona, shore excursions, etc.?

we are going in a day early this may and will take the ATVO bus from the airport to P. Roma then catch the Vaporetto around to San Basilio where the ship dock for our cruise ..our hotel is a short walk from the Vap stop & the ship.
The ship may dock at San Basilio or Marttima
You could also take a land taxi to P. Roma then if the shuttle to ship is running if not you may have to walk
Good site to check info
