About Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of Spain's Catalonia region, and is one of the Spain's, or even Europe's, most beautiful and vibrant cities. Barcelona is a city of contrasts, which is evident in its architecture, a marriage of Gothic spikes and modern curves, including the famous - Sagrada Familia.

Barcelona is divided into two parts. The old city, which is the heart of the city, includes shopping, cafes and museums. Then there's Port Vell, which features bars, restaurants, shops, an IMAX theatre and the largest aquarium in Europe, not too far from the main Barcelona ferry port.

    I would not recommend
    • crew was moderately helpful, children were unsupervised - yelling, running and bumping into passengers, smoking in halls, chairs were used for proping feet, escalor was not working during departure (we had a handicap person), inconvenience of ticket pickup in relation to ship's location. All-in-all, the experience was horrible. Crew did nothing about the situations. I would not recommend.

    • I travelled from Livorno to Barcelona on the 22nd of june 2013 - The system of waiting at the port until someone in a small car arrives, then following them in a convoy up to their "office" is a little perplexing. Once there, I had to wait (I had a dog with me) until check in opened. it opened at 4pm but as I was traveling to Barcelona I wasn't allowed to check in until gone 5pm. Once checked in, I then had to follow this caravan of cars up to the port. As I was traveling to Barcelona, I was not allowed to board until after 23:00 hrs. Pathetic communication, no facilities in the port at all, nothing! I was traveling with my dog, I wish I had driven instead. The so called kennels were too small for my dog (she's a medium sized dog, no bigger than a collie), it is next to the engine rooms. there is no security other than a bolt. In the evening it was full of youths drinking in the area and I was concerned for my dog's welfare. All in all, NEVER AGAIN!

    Problems at both ends
    • Arriving at Livorno, we found signage non-existent. Having eventually found our way to the wasteland/holding area, there were no facilities and little explanation of where we were to go or what we were expected to do. We were then horrified to discover our internet booking was insufficient for boarding and we had to exchange it for tickets at a booking office which was totally unmarked. Eventually, we were taken in convoy to another parking area adjacent to the ferry, but again, there were no facilities - a locked bar/restaurant and locked toilets!! We were boarded one hour later than specified. On board, the crew were well-mannered and efficient, but we found the shop had very few items for sale and the food was very expensive. We arrived in Barcelona two hours late - 10pm and were not off the ferry till 10.30pm, making finding our hotel very difficult. We advise much clearer instructions on the website and booking form.
