Looks like we are taking the same cruise! We're staying a night at Barcelona as well, and going to explore the city to key attractions riding the Metro on our own. If you plan to DIY, here is what I do: have a list of sights in mind, match them on the Metro map, highlight the route, and pick a hotel close to one of the stops in the route.
Thats how we got around was the metro. We did use the public bus (#24) to go to Parc Guell as the metro is a hike to the park. We uses the T10 for tickets, they worked great. Another recommendation I would make is using the Aerobus to get to the airport, 5 euros per person.
