airport to cruise port

by paulinewales

What is the best way to get from Airport to Cruise port? Many thanks

Re: airport to cruise port

by listenandlearn

Hi, I would suggest two ways from the airport to the port. If your traveling light and would like to save a little,then you can take the aerobus shuttle (these is a bright yellow and dark blue bus). This aerobus shuttle will drop you at the center which we call Plaza Catalunya, from there you may take a taxi to the port. Now if you feel my first suggestion is too many transfers and unsure, then take the taxi approximately the taxi to the port would be 25Euros plus one euro per luggage which will be placed at the back compartment. It is not customary for us to give tips to the driver, but if you feel generous they will always appreciate that one euro tip.
Now there is also the train which will take you to Plaza Catalunya (the center of the city, although I really would not suggest to take the train unless someone familiar is with you as it is quite a long walk from the airport as well as trying to find a taxi as you exit the train for the port...still the best ways is to take the aerobus shuttle and get off the centre which is Plaza Catalunya then take the taxi to the port. Happy Cruising! AND ENJOY BARCELONA!

Re: airport to cruise port

by Belsaita

"best" has different meanings... quicker? cheaper? easier??

definitley the easier and quicker will be taxi (+/- 25€)

if budget is an issue and you travel light (you will find stairs and you'll have to walk a bit), you have a few options by public transport, but all involve one change. However, it will cost you as cheap as less than 2 € (or about 5 € when using Aerobus + other bus or metro)

you don't need to go until the very city centre in Pl. Catalunya

Both regular bus (#46 as said by pedmar, slower but cheaper) and Aerobus (quicker) stops in Pl. Espanya that is closer to the cruise port. There you can take:
- a taxi (+/- 10-15 €)
- metro
- another bus (#50, 57, 157)
but from the metro or bus stop there will be still at least a 10-15 min walk to your ship

another option is train to Sants + metro

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Try the Bus Turistik

by goglobe

If you don't want to mingle with the locals in a metro car, by all means take the open-top double decker called Bus Turistik for a 30-minute round trip of the city. It has two roundabout routes, blue and red which you can hop in and out anytime, that take you to the Olympic Stadium in the high hills of Montjuic, the Columbus column, the Gaudi buildings including the Sagrada Familia and also Parc Guell, which like all visitors, you have to climb some gradient to get to. Not a bad idea if you run out of time for some in-depth visits of the sights.

Language use

by dlandt

Outside the tourist areas, it didn't seem that Barcelonians spoke more than Spanish and Catalan. I found some minimal knowledge of English and German but found it easier to speak what Spanish I knew and fill in the gaps with Italian. When I spoke pure Italian, people seemed to get kind of the gist of what I was saying, but corrected me in Spanish each time, which helped me improve but also kept my ego in check.

In tourist areas or areas of interest, it seemed that facilities catered to speakers of French or Spanish, Catalan of course. English, Italian, or German? "If you must". Beyond that, very little effort was made to present things in minor, Central or East European languages. No effort at all was made for speakers of Asian languages that I could see.

Sun protection

by morganna

Some northern people come to Spain looking for our sun. I understand it, but please take a high protection cream for your skin, nowadays sun is really dangerous, even for us. Get a tan, not a burn!

Art in Rambla Catalunya

by Elisabcn

People who in those days (May-July 2007) walk along Rambla Catalunya will find a nice open air exposition. Igor Mitoraj, a polish sculptor, has lent to the city of Barcelona some of his great bronze sculptures about man and his past. You can learn more about this artist going to Caixa Forum where you'll find nice exposition about his work and creative process.
I find it a nice idea, the sculptures look very well in Rambla Catalunya, it seems they are part of the urban furniture!

Pelayo street

by Marionbcn about shoe shops

Among the pelayo street theres plenty of shoe shops, its the main street to go and get new shoes, spain is one of the countries that produces more shoes in the world ( specially in the Alicante area), so shoes here are cheap and with high quality. All kind of shoes, from sleepers, to snickers, to eegant shoes to go out at night. depends, but most of the prices are so low knwoing they are high quality.
