  1. We had the first timed ticket and Sagrada Fam and it was great being inside before it was packed.

    Timing for flight leaving Rome (FCO)

    12:50 should work. We have flown out of there (from a cruise 3X) and sometimes it is a bit of a madhouse. By that I mean uncontrolled masses instead or organized lines. Just be prepared for something other than a leisurely walk through the airport.
  3. Even though your mind has been made up note that Uber is a potential problem at the port in Baltimore. The port was not letting cars into the port to drop people off until the parking lot cleared of departing passengers. Our Uber driver had people for the next cruise so couldn't get into the port. Had to cancel and take a taxi.

    Day or Overnight Trips from Barcelona

    Not sure where you have been before. An easy train ride from Barcelona is Girona. Also, if you have not been to Montserrat, that is an option.

    Venice overnight

    The logistics on and off the ship take time. However, it is more than doable. On one trip we checked in, had lunch, went into Venice, back to the ship for dinner and then out again until almost midnight. In the morning we were off again.

    Garden of the Groves Freeport

    We went to Garden of the Groves. However, it was a Pride excursion (had OBC to use). It was a relaxing day. Here are some photos.

    Christmas cruise from Baltimore

    I agree with the previous poster. With three days, at least one in DC.

    A lot of my favorite scenes were from Arles. Here are another two pictures. The second is the site of the Van Gogh painting.

    Christmas cruise from Baltimore

    Even with the shutdown you can see the buildings. Also, the non Smithsonian museums will be open (e.g., Newseum, Spy Museum, etc.)
