      transfer from cruise terminal to hotel

      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

      Is it worth the trip?

      by johnincornwall Online Now Oct 30, 2014 at 6:56 AM

      For regular posters/Spain dwellers etc:

      Regulars will know we visit Spain twice a year and have covered much of the south and east plus a bit more! I'm thinking of staying somewhere near Malaga next Spring - not a problem where to stay there, loads of cheap villas/houses nowadays.

      But I'm researching us taking in a trip to Ceuta, as it's only an hour by ferry. We could either go across in the morning and come back on the last ferry, or stay overnight at somewhere like the Ulises and come back next day at leisure - the trip isn't a problem.

      The dilemma is that I am reading 2 versions of Ceuta across different sites - one where it's delightful, charming and historic, the other where there is nothing to see and you'd be glad to get back to mainland Spain.

      I am heavily into history, speak fluent Spanish and love different places. The only cautionary note is my wife loves Spain but not North Africa - is it Spanish enough for her or a bit too influenced by Moroccan culture? We want to stroll around freely without being pestered. Help gratefully accepted as Ceuta and Melilla are a bit of a mystery.

      Any Need to Buy a Ferry Ticket in Advance?

      by Venelin Online Now Jul 29, 2010 at 4:41 PM

      Hi.

      I am planning to take a ferry from Ceuta to Algeciras on a Sunday evening in late September. I have no fixed schedule for the day yet, but I would still prefer a certain departure time. That is why I would like to ask you if there is any need to buy the ticket in advance, be it online or on arrival in Ceuta. Do they "run out" of tickets? I'm asking this because I saw that all companies offer a "reserved seat on board", which could theoretically mean that seats are limited in number and a Sunday evening might be a problem.
      I guess other ferries across the Strait of Gibraltar have the same tickets, so advice on these will probably guide me for the Ceuta-Algeciras line, too.

      Thank you in advance

      Ceuta or Tangier

      by westcaicosgirl Online Now Jun 2, 2004 at 4:15 AM

      We are going to be on Holiday in Andalucia and wanted to go to North Africa for the day. But Ceuta or Tangier? I've always been fascinated by Ceuta but how like north Africa is it? Will I be disappointed that it is just like Spain? I've done plenty of travelling to tough places, so I'm not looking for an easy option - I've heard that Tangier is ghastly.....but that sort of appeals to me (!). Any comments anyone?
