Hi Helen --

I second Frances's comments about Barcelona. I, too, was there back in the 1970s and loved it. I then had a chance to spend 24 hours there by myself in 2000 and was so enamored of the city that I brought my 16 year old son for a week in 2001.

We rented a small one-bedroom apartment in a working class neighborhood near Mont Juic and immersed ourselves into the city. Even though it was February, the weather was more than acceptable and aside from excursions to Girona and Tarragona, we spent most of our time walking.

Barcelona is definitely one of my most favorite places. And, since your cruise begins there, it seems the perfect place to spend a few days.
