Barcelonea also has a safe and clean metro service you might try that from Las Rambles to the Nou Camp.

It's only about 7 km (4miles) so cab it. Its too far to walk to the train station.

You can take the bus,there are two routes that run continuously and you can jump on and off all day at different stops. There is a stop close to the cruise ships and it takes about an hour and a half to go round the city. Great value and a good way to see Barcelona. The Nou Camp is about the furthest stop from the ships so you get a tour thown in by default! There is a stop right outside the Nou Camp.

I'd just like to re-iterate the previous post. The open top circular bus route is the best option. The ships are generally in port for a full day so you've got plenty of time. If you're a sports enthusiast then you may want to consider going on to the Olympic Stadium. I think that it's on the same route. Then you can hop back on the bus to go back into Barcas' centre or get the cable car back down as the Olympic Stadium isn't far from it. Hope you have a good time.

We went on Ocean Village 2 last year, my 15 year old son wanted to see the Nou Camp, we went on the metro, got a shuttle from the ship, walked less than 10 mins to the station, money into a ticket machine, found the stop about 15 mins walk to the stadium, lots of people going there, very easy to find. Worst luck and dont know how many times this happens they had a power cut and were not doing any tours until it came back on, we had lunch there and waited a while but no luck, walked back to the station, no ticket machines were working because of the power cut, but they just waved you through, went back to las rambles and he enjoyed watching all the street entertainers.

Http://www.fcbarcelona.com/web/english/club/club_avui/territori_barca/subhome/territori_barca.html The above link should help you. Use the Metro, it is clean and easy or one of the circular tour buses. Barcelona is a great city to do some walking and get the feel of the place.

Brits and Tips.

By Sam Smith

We Brits as a nation have always been somewhat uncomfortable with the whole tipping scenario. Ok, in a restaurant environment maybe, but when was the last time you found yourself handing over extra cash to the nice lady on the checkout in Sainsburys or the very nice man who changed your car tyres in Kiwk Fit? Were they not all just doing their jobs, albeit well?This poses the question as to why we have to either pre-pay what can amount to noticeable sums of money when booking a cruise, or hav...

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

So as I said last time I loved Royal Caribbean’s latest ship Symphony of the Seas.. I wasn’t too sure beforehand if she was going to be just too big, but I can safely say although without doubt a huge ship Symphony doesn’t feel too big once you’re on board. In fact all the different neighbourhood’s and places on board are fantastic, so much choice. I often talk to my customers who are new to cruising and they worry that they will feel enclosed and trapped, with ...

Cruise lines start returning t...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Many cruise lines stopped visiting Turkey itineraries after the military coup attempt in July of 2016 due to security concerns and Turkish calls on cruise itineraries are certainly a lot less common than they used to be.It seems that some cruise companies are now starting to re-introduce some Turkish ports of call with the majority now calling at Ephesus (Kusadasi) after security experts have given the all-clear.There still seems to be a massive drop in Turkish cruise destinations compared to...
