  1. Our transatlantic cruise ends in Barcelona on May 18 and we're spending 2 nights at the AC Irla. We have 4 rooms for the 8 in our group. When we disembark, we have a full day tour with Barcelona Day Tours and they will drop us off at the hotel. We plan on doing the Hop On/Hop Off bus on the 19th. You mentioned "excellent restaurants". Any recommendations for a dinner spot on the 18th and breakfast on the 19th? We're going to a Flamenco dinner and show on the 19th. Thanks.
  2. Thanks, Everyone for your suggestions. I was mainly curious. A bank seems like the best bet. I live in a small town and bank locally at a credit union. They don't offer currency exchanges. One local bank will get Euros for a $20 fee, which seems high. Another only offers the service to their account holders for $7.50. I did find that my mother's bank (TD Bank), not too far away, offers the service for a $7.50 fee and will buy back any leftovers. Since I'm listed on her account, I'm all set. If I run out of cash, I'll use a local ATM.
  3. We're on the Emerald trans-atlantic in May. Does anyone know if the onboard ATM dispenses Euros? Thanks.
  4. There are 4 couples in our group taking the Emerald Princess transatlantic in May. We will stay a couple of nights in Barcelona at the end. We have 4 rooms booked at the AC Hotel Irla. We've never been to Barcelona before, so I don't know if that's a good choice or not. When we disembark, we have a full day tour with Barcelona Day Tours and they will drop us off at the hotel. We booked this hotel because it looked close to the HOHO bus route, our next-day plan. Is this a good choice? Are there any restaurants within walking distance for breakfast and dinner? Anything else nearby? My brother works for Marriott, so we tend to stay at those. Thanks for your help.
