Barcelona Spain transfer to Ruby Princess

Years ago when we left the ships in Barcelona -- we used a taxi.
Stopped counting a few years ago -- have done over 140 cruises.
I would and did take a taxi. The airport is about 20 minutes from the port. You can check on the Europe forum for current prices and maybe more specific directions from your airline to the taxi stand. If you are worried about a language barrier, come with a picture of the cruise ship and the port address you are cruising from.
I would not try to do this by public transportation.
Suffice it to say, we're booking our own hotel (and saving a chunk of change in the process). The hotel I'm booking offers a private car service which is still more than what I'd like to pay so we're probably going to end up with a cab.
A travel agent friend of ours suggested a shared transfer, but I really don't want to have to wait for other people, or make them wait for us.
Fond memories of:
Island Princess - Grand Mediterranean - Sep 2015
Grand Princess - Mexican Riviera - Jan 2015

I also recommend flying in a couple of days or more before the cruise.
