A great port to start your cruise. State of the art terminal with great embarkation and disembarkation facilities. Just returned from a cruise ship with 5000 passengers and progress through the terminal was very swift both on the outbound and inbound journeys.

We were leaving from here on one of the larger cruise ships, but the departure (and return) could not have been more hassle-free.

I wasn’t sure if a cruise was for me or not but after a week in Symphony of the Seas I’m a fan. It was a fantastic week with loads to see and do with a fantastic Cruise Line Royal Caribbean.

Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
