Re your comment about the mysterious extras on your taxi trip in Barcelona. We have recently done a similar journey and they add on an extra charge for each piece of luggage! So be warned for the future.

Had a similar taxi experience. The metered fare from our hotel was just under 13 euros. When I gave the driver 15 euros he informed me that the fare was 20 euros! When I protested he explained that there were surcharges to enter and exit the cruise terminal. The term 'rip-off' comes to mind!

You are right and wrong. Yes - it's a marketing ploy and no - I won't be going up there next time because it's far too expensive for me. But it was a nice touch and I appreciated the opportunity.

Did you have any trouble to get on the hydrofoil to sorrento or did you go early to miss the crowds. Do they go quite frequently and how long does it take. Glad you had an enjoyable cruise we are going on 11th October 2009 and havent sailed on the Norwegian Gem before.

The jetfoil leaves at 9:00am and the return is at 1:40pm so you get about 4 hours to savour the delights of Sorrento. The boats are very INFREQUENT and if you miss the early one the next is at 11:00am so you are snookered. It's 11 euros each person each way. Please don't miss the FOREIGNERS CLUB. It's 50 yards down the road which you have to walk down leading to the little dock so you can't miss it (on the right through a wide gateway and nice garden). The terrace is simply wonderful with views for which to DIE! I'll post some photos on the site right now. Your bottle of Sorrento limoncello will be snaffled on your return to the Gem and you get it back on the last night of the cruise. Have great time and please report back via this site.
