PRE CRUISE HOTEL
We recommend you fly in a day prior to date of sailing to avoid any issues from flight delays and to give you a day or two to see Barcelona. La Sagrada Familia is quite amazing to see.
POST CRUISE TOUR TO GRANADA AND ALHAMBRA
For those of you with more time, you may wish to take advantage of the post tour to Granada. We can train from Barcelona to Granada for a 2-3 night stay. You can enjoy a city tour, a visit to Alhambra, then fly home from there.
We have arranged for a block of tables at early seating - 6:30pm so the group can stay together and network over dinner. Of course if you wish to dine elsewhere for an evening or simply take a night off, it is no problem. We will have the tables available for you to dine each evening.
