We took the taxi from Barcelona airport to the Cruise terminal (and back after our cruise)last year and it cost us about 20 euros each way for 4 of us and took about 15 minutes. A lot cheaper than using the cruise lines transfer! There were loads of taxis just outside the terminal exit so not a long wait, but there was a very long queue at the terminal after the cruise for the taxi back to the airport. Enjoy your cruise.

We live in Spain. From the airport , you can take the metro to Drassanes, which is just across the road from the port. Leave the underground station and cross the road towards the port. There is a bus stop more or less straight in front of you, which is purely for buses going to the cruise terminal. For 2 people, the complete journey will be under 10 euros and will take no more than an hour, even on sunday. Haze.

I am also going on that particlar cruise, on Aug 26th and have arranged flights from Bristol with easy jet. travelling time around 2.30 mins. flighttimings are ideal for the embarkation and return on the Sunday morning when we disembark after an early breakfast. go online to easy jet and make a booking as early as you can Ann John-Upto.

It takes about 30-40 minutes in a taxi, depending on traffic, and costs about 30 Euro.

We got a taxi right outside the airport straight to the port - took about half an hour. I think the cost was about 20 euros.

Airport to Terminal is about 20 mins and 20 Euros by taxi. Trains run from the airport into Sants station in town, cost 6.90 Euros for a 10 trip day ticket, which can be used by more than one person. It then costs 10 Euros from Sants station to the terminal by taxi. We disembarked Voyager of the Seas at Barcelona on 23 June, and there was a massive queue for taxis. There were plenty of taxis, but it took about 1 hour in the queue whilst each set of 5 taxis pulled up and loaded before the next 5, a big problem. I'd suggest getting the bus away from the terminal then get a taxi or the train back to the airport.

As others have said it was about 20 euros when we did this cruise last year. Coming back we shared with people we met on board. If this your first time on the Jewel we will live it. We are sailing on the 2nd September for 12 nights.

My Azamazing Journey Part 2

By Camilla Edwards

If you have read my last blog you will now that my journey began in Nice beforeembarking on the lovely Azamara Quest. It was a brilliant start to my trip with probably the easiest check-in, with a glass of prosecco in hand, I`ve ever experienced. After this, it’s definitely small ship cruising for me!So what is she like? I had a conversation with one of my clients last week about Azamara and he said he thought the ships would be too formal and posh for him. How wrong could he be?The s...

Family cruise On Indy

By Emily Watts

 Time really does go fast. It wasn’t that long ago I was counting down the days until our family cruise, and now it has been and gone. You have probably seen lost of posts on the newly refurbished Independence and here is my take on it.We went on the 5 night sailing over to Cherbourg and Cobh in May half term. On the day we sailed away it was in the late 20’s which unfortunately didn’t last, but we were lucky it stayed dry. Like previous years we have got up early and t...

Iona- A little island, a Big ship.

By Trevor Smith

Trevor Smith's blog

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...
