As Harden said, you will be off by 9.00am & after that you will be called by name to leave the ship. We booked a day room in one of the many 'Hostals' in town. It cost 90 euro's between 6 of us, gave us all day & early evening in town, plus washing & changing facilities before leaving for our 2200hr flight.

You are normally off all the ships by 9am latest. You could either try a ship excursion but these finish at the airport which may be too early for you or you could book a day room in Barcelona to drop your bags and sightsee a bit.

Thanks for your prompt reply. The day room sounds like the best idea. We'll post an update on our experience once we get back.

We've just got back and had a great last day in Barcelona afer leaving our bags at the hotel we stayed in before the cruise. We simply asked at reception when checking out and the hotel staff seemed happy to provide the service. Met someone else on the cruise who made the same arrangement with their city centre hotel so it seems like a fairly common practice. Royal Caribbean get everyone off the ship by 09:00 with no option to stay onboard as a guest. I tried to find hotels in Barcelona with day rooms but an internet search didn't find anything. You may have more success if you ring the hotels direct or as Harden suggested try the smaller hostals. Several people booked the Barcelona tours, your bags go on the tour bus with you and the tour finishes at either the airport or the city centre at about 13:30. Failing that the ship provide a list of the luggage locker facilities in Barcelona railway stations and terminal B at the airport. There don't appear to be many available so it's a big risk.

Hi, we were in this same position although our flight from Barcelona was leaving around 4 pm (3 pm check in) We went on the excursion to Montserrat, which was absolutely fantastic. Our luggage was loaded on to the bus straight from the ship, we did the tour and they driopped us at the airport. No fuss, no hassle and a great way to finish the cruise...enjoy!

You will be off the ship at 9am latest (as the new lot will be boarding at 11.30). There is a left luggage facility at Barcelona Estacion Sants (train station Sants). About €4 for a large locker IIRC.

Crown Princess to become home from home

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

I don’t know about you but when I go on a cruise one of my favourite things is the food, I love trying all the international dishes and eating food that I wouldn’t usually eat at home. I’m sure you will agree that dining on board your cruise should be one of the highlights, it certainly is for me. So when I read Princess cruises latest plans for their menu’s on board I have to say I wasn’t overly convinced from a personal perspective.According to Princess they ar...

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale?
