John & Annette Moore
Royal Caribbean Cruise Tour#1EB
My wife and our front line agent Annette Moore were selected by Royal Caribbean Cruise Line to experience one of the pre-cruise tour packages this summer in Spain. She said she would never sell another cruise out of Barcelona without highly recommending at least a hotel stay there and she really enjoyed the 4 nights pre-cruise tour as offered by Royal Caribbean. They fly you into Madrid for 2 nights which is a great place for nightlife. Annette and her new friends took in a ballet and went out to eat tapas afterwards around midnight (and they say New York is the city that never sleeps!) They toured the cities of Madrid and Toledo and then took a high speed train to Barcelona for a 2 night stay. She said that is the way to really fly! It was very comfortable and convenient. Barcelona is where the Olympics were held so you can imagine it is clean and has modern transportation, but still exhibits its Old World charm and history. Do you know this is the second busiest cruise port in the world? So many interesting sights such as the Gothic Quarter, La Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi works, as well as the Olympic Ring and Stadium and don't forget to experience La Rambla. All this before you even board the cruise, but if you don't take a pre-cruise tour you will miss all Spain has to offer by just flying in and taking off for the cruise.
