  1. Hi. You can get round Barcelona by taxi oe by using the metro. Get the bus provided to the bottom of las ramblas. From there, it's a few meters (maybe a bit more) to the metro stop. You can definitely get to Sagrada Familia on the metro, though you'll probably need to change trains and you can probably get to park guell as well. More information on the metro iq available online. Alternatively, you can take a taxi feom the bottom of las ramblas, though this will probably be more expensive. Don't get a taxi from where you get off the ship, as that will be more expensive. As far as I know, it would be possible to do both in one day, though you would need to plan your time and work out distances etc, bearing in mind allowing enough time to get back to the ship. Hope that helps. Thanks Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, you can, but as you're all inclusive, I'd just get a drink from one of the bars to take to your cabin. That's what we always do.
  3. Sorry for the delay in replying. We didn't pre-book the train or get an express service. We just went to the station and got the next available train. However, if you need to get there for a certain time, it could be worth prebooking. The express service is more expensive, but again, if you need to get there for a certain time it could be worth It. It's your day, so it's up to you how you plan it. As suekay has said, most train strikes are announced in advance and ate quite uncommon. Lighting strikes are rare. I've used the train service in italy 7 times and never had a problem. In fact, personally I find the trains in italy more reliable than in the UK. Hope that helps.
  4. In ajaccio, you can just walk off the ship, as it docks right in the centre of town. Napoleon's house is about 10 minutes walk away down the road by the sea. There are bars and cafes by the roadside. In civitaveccia, if you're confident juat get the shuttle buses to the station then get tje train. It's much cheaper and gives you more freedom. Any questions, please ask. Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
  5. No need to apologize. We all feel unsure about things. Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
  6. It depends on if it's short or medium haul or long haul. If it's long haul, a meal is included. If it's short haul, you can buy snacks and drinks on the plane. It's the same as if you were flying somewhere to stay in a hotel. Hope that helps. Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
  7. We were on d2 in the school holidays 2 years ago. There were quite a lot of kids on board, but they never bothered us. To be honest, we didn't see much of them. Like you, we tend to eat late. There were kids in the main dining room, but mainly older ones, so probably won't be there when you are and they never caused any problems. On the rest of the ship, there are a lot of places to go other than the main pool, where the kids are. I often cruise in the school holidays and i've never have bothered by the kids there. Most of them are well-behaved and, like i say, it's fairly easy to go to quieter places on board. Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
  8. Hi. We're going to be visiting bar in Montenegro in August and I was wondering what was best to do in that port. I've read about an old town, but was wondering about the best way to get there or if there was plenty to see near where the ship docks. We're not bothered about going further afield if we can help it. Thanks. Claire Sent from my G3311 using Tapatalk
