You'll have much more than plenty of time. The airport was just a short cab ride from the port. I forget exactly, but it seems like it was just 15 minutes or so.

I was on a mid-October cruise from Barcelona to Greece and back. It was great weather still. Not too warm, and not too cool. There was only one day where it rained. Seas were mild as well. I'm...

Re: ATM Machines

I would imagine they all do now. Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas certainly did. It was located in the Casino (of course).

Re: Med waters in Sept

They were smooth when I was there in October, so I'm thinking September should be fine too. Hardly could tell we were on water.

Re: Barcelona on my own

I don't have private tour info, but I will say that they have an excellent hop-on-hop-off tour bus system. It runs frequently; has 2 different routes; and hits many, many of the major stops you...

Re: European Cruise Question

I totally agree with the postings so far. I did the 12 night on Briliance in October. We were one of the last cruises of the season, so we caught the tail end of the tourist crowds at most places,...

Re: May or Sept. for 12 Night Cruise on RCL

I did a 12 nighter on the Brilliance in mid October and the weather was still very nice (shorts and t-shirts mostly, a long sleeve shirt on deck at night). The seas were not rough at all. The...

Re: best month for Europe?

Mid October was still quite warm last year. Might need a jacket or sweater at night on the open deck. I was in shorts and T-shirt during the days except when visiting churches and such. This time...

Re: Barcelona hotels

I also stayed at the Regencia Colon. It was a good, clean reasonably priced hotel by European city standards. It was about a 15 Euro taxi ride from the port if I recall (including tip). It is very...

Re: Re: Maui

and i agree with SRMX5. Go all the way to Hana if you have lots of time. But not much to do once there. So I would go part of the way and then turn back. It's a beautiful drive, but takes forever.

Re: Millennium Med 6/20/05

You don't mention your age, interests, general health (it helps plan the type of excursions... i.e physical capabilities), or tolerance for risk. So I may miss the boat here. No pun intended.

Re: RCC Italy, France, etc. Americans on board? Good cruise

Re: Do-it-yourself tours

A couple of things to consider. If you are healthy and able to walk, it is definately "do-able" to walk both Florence and Rome and see MOST of the major sites. In Rome, depending on how much time...
