Travel from airport to cruise terminal

Hi all

We are looking at a cruise holiday that embarks from Barcelona in February . The flight is included in the holiday cost , but does not include a transfer from the airport to the cruise terminal.

Has anyone done this journey and can advise on the best way to get to the cruise terminal. The travel company are offering a transfer at £30 per person .

Thank you in advance

Just get a taxi from the airport should be around 30€ (less than half the price)

£30.00 for door-to-door transport for you and all your luggage sounds reasonable to me.

Or as per post #1 you can save a bit on that by taking an official taxi off the rank outside the terminal. But make sure you are clear which Cruise Terminal you need to go to - there are seven in the Port area and, although it wouldn't be the end of the world if you went to the wrong one it might be annoying having to lug all your baggage over.

There are ways of doing it by trains and buses (note: plural) but they are only for the terminally stingy.

Weirewiper,

it was £30 per person they were quoted, assuming two people (as the OP say 'we') that's £60, a taxi should be less than half that

D'oh, of course £60.00 for two.

I still think it's reasonable for no-fuss door-to-door transport though.

IMHO Getting a regular taxi is door to door and no fuss too, for half the price or less...
