  1. My travel agent has asked us to choose between early or late seating on the main dining room but when I log in to my account I get the option to book My Time Dining and select times for each individual day. Is this right? I hope so as early is fine unless we've been out at a port all day... We'd like early when there's a show on but not sure how to find out what's on on what day.
  2. Half of my party (5) want to visit the Nou Camp and the other half want to do more general sightseeing incl the Sagrada F. I've seen guided tours of the Nou Camp at 50 euros each which I can pre-book. Before I book a specific time, anyone have any idea how long it takes to get to the Nou Camp by taxi? Also, how long does it take to get from the ship to the taxi rank? Any idea how much a taxi is from the port to the Nou Camp? For the 5 wanting to do general sightseeing incl the SF, Are we best booking an audio tour or guided tour? Are we best getting a taxi there? Would appreciate any advice you can give.
  3. Me too! So glad you posted that photo. I had a panic attack years ago on the cable car at Gibraltar!
  4. Brilliant thank you. My dad can't walk too far so will use HOHO buses where possible I think.
  5. Thank you. Will look at doing them DIY I think. Am looking at using the hop on hop off bus in Barcelona. Have you used this? Some in our party want to go to the nou camp stadium. I can pre-book our own tour of the stadium and get a taxi I think. Have you visited nou camp?
  6. That's reassuring thank you. I'm looking at hop on hop off buses in Barcelona and have pre-booked a private taxi tour at gibraltar through the tourist office at a fraction of the cost of the RC price.
  7. Am going on RC Independence of the Seas in July to the med. I thought we'd have to choose between early or late dining slots but on the website I appear to be able to book specific times for each day. How can I find out what times the shows will start? We'd like to eat earlier on those days but probably later on days where there isn't any evening entertainment that we fancy.
  8. The UK has beautiful beaches especially in Cornwall but we don’t always get sunny summers and the water’s freezing. Millions of Brits head to the med for sunny beach holidays. However in this instance, Mediterranean beaches is just the name of the cruise. We picked it because we haven’t been to many of the places it stops at. What I wanted feedback on was whether it’s better to do the cruise line’s excursions or visit the areas independently.

  10. I'm booked on the med beaches cruise this summer and could do with some advice about excursions. I've felt ripped off on package holiday excursions before. What excursions are worth the money and what ports could we do ourselves independently?
