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.

Royal Princess

By Emily Watts

 Last week I was lucky enough to experience Royal Princess which was also my first time on a Princess ship. It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
