Arrival into Barcelona was uneventful this morning, and I swung the vessel so that departure would be easy tonight. It looked like it would be a pleasant day.

Barcelona fits into the premise of this cruise perfectly with its many artistic and architectural sites. The main artistic influence of Barcelona was undoubtedly Antoni Gaudi, with many buildings showing his influence.

There were a number of tours to the main sites, including Park Guell and Sagrada Familia – both on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. There was a new tour to the Gran Teatre del Liceu which was very well received by those who went. There was also a Simon Coll Chocolate Experience for those chocoholics amongst us!

Most of our guests were back onboard for Dinner, although it wasn’t until 2230 that we set sail for Palamos.
