  1. we stayed in the gothic quarter in an apartment we got through booking.com. Small but very atmospheric and in the best location. The only problem was that we could hear everything on the street and it was loud all hours a day. Ended up sleeping with provided ear plugs one day. I would do it again. My parent who were with us were more bothered by the noise.
  2. I was just in barcelona last month and did a tour with FOOD WINES TOUR called TAPAS EVENING WALKING TOUR OF BARCELONA. It was at: Tours, Tapas & Friends: Gastronomic Center, Carrer del Pintor Fortuny, 10 - 14, 08001 Barcelona, Spain It was $80 per person and was excellent. We got a walking tour of the gothic quarter, a tour and tastings at the Boqueria, candy tasting, and multiple tapas with drinks at two different restaurants. I was very impressed. Booked through Viator.
  3. We used italytours.eu and had the best tour guide/driver of our trip. We saw Aix, Cassis and the church in Marseille. We would have seen more of Marseille but we had only 8 hours in port total. Price was 99 per person and we shared the tour with two other couples. Used italytours for two other tours in Italy and I can definately recommend them.
  4. Was on VOS earlier in the month. We docked in Marseille so i can't say anything about Ville Franche tendering. Kotor we had our one RC shore excursion so we got on one of the first tenders. I did hear it took about 2 hours for everyone to get off and getting back to the ship there was a half hour delay when they moved the ship closer. There were three boats in port that day.
  5. Last week walked off the ship at 7:15 after a 6:45 docking. At airport by 7:45. Had to wait for TAP person to check in and get boarding pass. Minimal lines. Waited by gates for 1 hour but didn't know actual gate till 20 minutes before flight. Flew out of barcelona at 10am. You probably can make the earlier flight if you want.
  6. Thank you so much for this review. It has kept me hyper enthused for our journey on the vision that starts when you get off. Our itinerary is different Barcelona Croatia Venice Montenegro salerno rome Florence Marseille but I am sure we will love it the same. Off to the airport.
  7. I am getting on the vision right when you are getting off. We are doing the MED Venice cruise starting June 23. Going to live vicariously through you until our cruise. Maybe we can meetup in Barcelona? doesn't that sound exotic. We are getting there June 20 and are doing a food tour, HOHO bus and sagarda famila tour. 9 more days till my flight. Robin
  8. I would just get a flavored vodka with seltzer if they don't have hard seltzer. The have them add a lime, orange or other fruit. I find this just as refreshing.
  9. Sailing on VOS in June one a 12 day Med cruise. One question I have is does the vision offer pictures on a dvd or zipdrive? They aren't showing that on the cruise planner and I always like my pictures digital so I could scrap them.
