We had the same problem last month with a 10pm flight. We booked a hotel room for the day cost 90 Euro between 6 of us & we all considered it worth while.

If you are travelling with Royal Caribbean you could perhaps do what we did. Our flight wasn't until the afternoon so we booked a RC shore excursion to Montserrat. They took our luggage on the bus and delivered us all to the airport on the way back. I'm not sure if they offer this on your itinerary but it was well worth it.

You could always try a local hotel in the centre of Barcelona. They would probably charge a small fee but better than carrying your luggage around.

Yes, you can leave your luggage at Barcelona Sants train station. Around €4 per locker.

However, if you have booked the flights with the cruise, then they will take you to the airport and leave you there all day - so you will be there from around 10am. Take a good book - otherwise do as Mr Brown suggests and take a city tour to kill some time, you will still be at the airport in the early afternoon; or just DIY, dump the luggage at the station, and then catch a cab to the airport when you are ready around 7.30pm for €30 approx.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
