Cab is cheapest at around €30. There will be hundreds lined up at the airport when you land. When you get off the ship take a cab to Barcelona Sants train station where there are luggage storage facilities - approx €4.50 per locker. Enjoy the day in town and then catch cab back to airport at the end. Couldn't be easier.

You do have another choice, the sants train station is also where the underground is as well so you can explore the city without too much cost, also on returning to collect your luggage there is a train which takes you straight into the airport, cost i think is 6 euros each, the staff were very helpfull, they have an information booth for the underground at which they speak english, and we had no problem getting the train. Luggage storage is well signposted. Barcelona has some fantastic buildings, also if you want to shop placa cataluna is the main square with plenty of shops leading off. you can get the underground from sants to there, have a great cruise.

Iona- A little island, a Big ship.

By Trevor Smith

P&O have announced the name of their new ship for what will be their biggest vessell.Iona. Having Googled Iona the name is actually quite fitting. P&O as a company can trace their roots back to Scotland, and Iona is an island off the Scottish coast. You can see the sea from anywhere you are on the island, much the same as you can whilst on board a ship. The first, of many, bits of steel was cut on the 25th April this year and she is due to launch in May 2020. You can start to boo...
