I just cancelled 3 booked cruises...

Recommended Posts

...but it’s only because I’m moving to Spain in a few months (from Florida!). Which means - European cruises (without the additive flight costs), here I come! 

 

My new apartment will be ~30 minutes from the Barcelona port. I’m just excited. Bear with me.

Congratulations for what I assume is a new wonderful job!

Barcelona is a great city , have fun 

 

It really is! I spent several weeks in the city last year, and fell in love. There’s so much to do, and everything is so close!

Yes, ma’am! Same company, a promotion, and a fantastic re-location package. Thank you so much! 🙂

Congratulations! High speed train to anywhere!

 

Yes, yes, yes! And flights are ridiculously cheap as well! Roughly 50 € to get you pretty much anywhere inside of Europe! Crazy.

Thanks, Andrew! Me too. We’ve never cruised Europe before, so it should be interestinggg.

Hope they were refundable😇😇😇. Congrats

 

Out of all 3 cancelled, we lost $200 (cruise-wise). Which I don’t think is overly terrible/is our own fault. 

 

Thankfully only 1/3 required flying (TPA to Vancouver), which we got 2 tickets for $300 (including insurance). That being said, insurance company is saying “re-location due to job” may not be covered, so of course I’m going through that rigmarole of trying to push that through. Whoooo. 

 

And thank you! I appreciate it. 🙂

I’ve never been to Mallorca, but I bet Saman is the Mallorca pro! If you need any BCN tips, let me know. 🙂

You are very fortunate to be able to visit all the Gaudi buildings and some great art museums, including some great Picasso.

The Cathedral in the city center is gorgeous, definitely worth a visit.  We also visited the little town of Valdemossa.  It was wonderful.  The caves get great reviews as well, although we didn't have time to visit.    Mallorca is beautiful, enjoy!

I enjoy doing City tours or the country side of places I haven't been to. Since this will be my 2nd time to Barcelona I want to show the daughter many of the attractions of Barcelona I missed during my husbands & my first visit. We did the Walking tour our 2nd day then a day trip to Montserrat the 3rd day then boarded the ship the following day so missed a lot of things in Barcelona itself.

I live in the Tampa area... UGH.  I would rather live in the Barcelona area.  Enjoy your new home on the Mediterranean.

Congrats on the job relocation.  I fell in love with Barcelona the first time we cruised out of their.  For our first cruise out of Barcelona we arrived three days early.  The main idea was to get our internal clocks adjusted.  However we loved touring the city.  Post cruise, I had booked a hotel room near the airport for one night (afraid of not making the one an only Delta flight of the day on day of disembarkation).  The plan was just going to be to hangout at the hotel for the day.  However, when we got to the hotel, they had a shuttle that would run you into the city.  We looked at each, quickly dropped off our luggage in the room, and made a beeline to the shuttle.  We then spent the day trying out different tapa's bars

 

Our second Med cruise we did the same thing, except post cruise we stayed right on Las Ramblas.
