  1. We have just returned home after our 5th stay in BCN today. Hotel Barcelona Catedral is very close to Colon suggested above in a quieter side street off the square. We chose for ease of access to the Palau de Musics Catalana for a show.
  2. https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/4144/
  3. London is a big area to be searching with only 1 night in the city. A specific location would help give convenient options. Reasonable prices needs a little more guidance, there will be a wide choice at most price points.
  4. Not in Amsterdam, but I have 4 reservations with them in Barcelona in June. They seem efficient so far.
  5. It is possible but depending upon where you are berthed, it can be a long walk.
  6. https://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/en/page/1272/barceloneta-beach.html Take a taxi it is not very far
  7. Not stayed there, but no complaints about the location. It is good for sites, a short taxi to the port. The airport is the same distance from most central hotels, so it makes little difference. You can't have all 3 in one hotel....
  8. It is not close to the tourist sights. I would choose somewhere more central.
  9. Don't worry about being near the port. You will probably take a taxi, so the cost difference is negligible between near to port and better located to see the sights. Choose somewhere well located to see Barcelona rather than save 5 minutes in a taxi. I have either stayed at the following, have booked them for my next visit or thought they were very good choices in my search. The first ones are located more centrally for sight seeing.

  10. We used an independent 2 day tour which provided the visa. It was less expensive than cruise line tours. We were together as a group but did visit the market at the church of the spilled blood and wandered around on our own for a short time.
  11. The selection is limited, but adequate. Prices are higher than elsewhere in the city, but there are deals to look out for. Of course it is very convenient. Watch out for the currency they charge you in - They will attempt to sting you with a poor exchange rate by using your home currency for the transaction. Insist on being charged in euro
  12. Arcadia is the most Cunard style ship in their fleet, having originally been intended to be QV. There will be differences, but anticipate you will cope
  13. Not exactly the same. Some dishes will appear in both, but not necessarily on the same day. Sent from my SM-G935F using Forums mobile app
  14. Would you be unhappy if your bribe was ineffective as other passengers bribed more than you could afford relegating your service? Sent from my SM-G935F using Forums mobile app
  15. I have numerous people say they will not try Cunard because of the class system, which we all know is not very noticeable. Other lines (Celebrity, RCI, NCL, MSC) have separate areas and dining for suite / haven passengers. Oddly, there seems to be less resistance to this but in reality it is very similar. Looking to the Celebrity Edge class they seem to be dedicating more facilities to suite passengers, certainly the promos focus upon it. If this is reflected in the ships, many people will baulk at 50% of the ship reserved for 10% of the guests. Sent from my SM-G935F using Forums mobile app
