Our disembarkment from our cruise ship was at the Port of Barcelona. Very easy to disembark from this port. We booked a tour transfer straight from the Port and it was easy for a driver to park and find you. Many private drivers were waiting...More

We were leaving from here on one of the larger cruise ships, but the departure (and return) could not have been more hassle-free.

I wasn’t sure if a cruise was for me or not but after a week in Symphony of the Seas I’m a fan. It was a fantastic week with loads to see and do with a fantastic Cruise Line Royal Caribbean.

The port area is large and quite typical of port areas and not that attractive and there are better places in Barcelona to visit. If visitors to barcelona on cruise ships got no further than the port area they would be disappointed and mis what...More

El Puerto de Santa Maria (1 Replies)
I will be in Cadiz beyween the 19th - 22nd April 2017. Is El Puerto de Santa Maria worth a visit considering I only have a few days? Any must do's for Cadiz?

Should I stay in both Cadiz AND Jerez? (3 Replies)
Currently I plan to spend 2 nights in Cadiz and then 3 nights in Jerez. This is part of a 2 week trip to Andalusia in early October with my boyfriend. I am wondering if it is worth spending time in both cities, or whether we are best just spending 3 nights in Jerez and taking a day trip to Cadiz? Within the time in the area I would like to visit Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria. Just to give some more context here, after our time in Jerez we will plan to spend 2 nights in...More

Well staying in Jerez and also going to Sanlucar and El Puerto will not allow much time for Cadiz as well. There is much to see in Cadiz Province including those "pueblos blancos" such as Arcos which is close to Jerez. The last feria or local fair in these parts is held at Arcos and will end on Sunday 2nd October by the way. I think you would see something quite different if you visited the old city of Cadiz and stayed. If you can I would suggest a visit although Seville does also require...More

Bus schedules - Cadiz to Ronda, Cadiz to Jerez (5 Replies)
Having some difficulty figuring out the Spanish bus schedules. Can we get from Cadiz to Ronda by bus with a stop in Arcos and have enough time to see Arcos before everything closes for siesta? It looks like there is a 9 am bus out of Cadiz that gets to Arcos at 10:20 am then we'd take the 15,20 from Arcos arriving in Ronda at 17,25. Am I reading the schedule correctly? We also want to get to Jerez by bus from Cadiz and it looks like the 9 am is the best bet to get to Jerez in time for...More

Bus to Ronda takes 3 h 15 min. Check the timetables by movelia website. Bus operator is Tgcomes. To Jerez it is easiest way to go by Renfe commuter train (Cercanias), line C1 takes 45 minutes every hour.
