  1. Thanks for the confirmation. We booked it for next summer.
  2. Our very first cruise was on the Divina... we loved it despite not even knowing about the YC. Next was Seaside YC and we swore we would never do less than that. We were on the Meraviglia in November and it was the best YC experience yet. We are wanting to go back to the Divina and try out YC and are leaning toward this squarish Grand Suite. My husband who cannot walk without assistance uses a mobility scooter and walker and we usually get HA suites. However, we had to use a non-HA on the Meraviglia and it worked well for him; there was enough room for him to get into the cabin
  3. We used them last summer and they were TERRIFIC!
  4. There is a Best Western Aeropuerto with a shuttle to the airport. We used it last summer and it was fine. They had a great little restaurant as well
  5. We stayed at the Best Western. Convenient, well-priced and they have a shuttle.
  6. We booked our room 9 months in advance of our trip and (with the discounted rate) paid less than 400 Euros per night. However, that was an upgraded corner room with breakfast included. The property is right down the "street" from La Boqueria and a short walk to the Barcelona Cathedral in Barri Gotic. We only needed transportation to the port and to La Sagrada Familia; everything else was within walking distance. We feel that we got more than our money's worth and plan to return.
  7. We signed up on their website and got a discount code. I believe it was 30-35% off.
  8. We loved our stay at Hotel 1898 right on Las Ramblas.
  9. We stayed at the Best Western Plus Hotel Alfa at the airport last month. It was very reasonably priced, is clean, has an airport shuttle and a decent restaurant.
  10. We LOVED Hotel 1898 right on Las Ramblas!
  11. We bought this one through Amazon for about $40 to use in our hotel before and after the cruise. Worked like a charm! We did not need it on the ship.
  12. Either taxi, or we were pleased with J&G Elegance Cars. You can Google them easily and they were prompt and good to work with.
  13. Here's another vote for a stroll along Las Ramblas, the Boqueria and maybe the Gothic Quarter. I think you meant you were staying in a location "off" Las Ramblas, not that you wanted to avoid it, correct?
  14. I understood that reply just fine, thanks.
  15. Thanks to everyone for your responses. We are out of POM. But MUCH THANKS to BNBR for the tip about Global Entry!! We usually have our cards but it would be our luck that would be the one time we didn't!!
  16. We arrive on the MSC Meraviglia on a Sunday morning (7 AM). We are sailing in the Yacht Club and can be escorted off the ship as soon as she is cleared. We have Global Entry (does that matter at a cruiseport??) and will have a private shuttle pre-booked. My husband uses a mobility scooter and I can handle our two pieces of luggage. The big question is: Can we easily make an 11:15 AM flight out of MIA?
  17. We did this last month. It was a great way to get an overview of the beautiful city. We used J&G Elegance Cars. They will happily email you a quote. Very easy to work with.
  18. That included a tip. And again, it was a private driver in a Mercedes van to handle what we have to travel with. It would have taken 2 taxis to make the same ride. So, we felt we did well.
  19. It was just the two of us. However, my husband travels with a mobility scooter and we had 2 LARGE suitcases and four carry ons as well as a walker. They do have larger vehicles. Worth an email to ask!
  20. We stayed at Hotel 1898 right on Las Ramblas. It was convenient, safe and spectacular!
  21. We just got back. We used J&G Elegance Cars and were happy with them. I think we paid 70 Euros for a Mercedes van from the port to the airport. We used a taxi from our hotel on Las Ramblas to the port and paid only about 40 Euros.
  22. I would choose the later flight. Took quite a while to get out of the port the day we disembarked. Traffic was nasty and the taxis were running an hour late!
