Barcelona Airport to Cruise Ship - Reasonable transfer

So, the cruise ship charges $27 a person! Yikes, its only 3 or 4 miles I'm told from the airport to the cruise port.

Can anyone offer a cheaper solutions to get from airport to the ship????

Thanks!!

You can try the metro, a bus or taxi, which would all be less expensive than what the cruise ship is charging.

$27.00 is approx 24.00 euros and probably less by the time you get there. You may save money on a bus or the metro, but you won't go by taxi more cheaply, especially with luggage and a tip.

$27 USD only equates to 19 euros, so for two people the cost would be closer to 40 euros. And I assume that if you are going on a cruise there are at least two people. The last taxi we took from the center of the city to the airport was less than 30 euros total. The metro / bus are by far cheaper options, but would depend on how much luggage you're carrying.

Taxi is the best option for what you want. And much cheaper the the cruise "offer".

Thanks for all the helpful info!

Cruise ship said they have no more transfers available, so we'll either be riding on our rolling luggage or finding another way!

Thanks ya'll! On to posting my questions about tours in Rome, Nice, VEnice and London, which is the rest of our trip!

So excited to be on vacation!

Happy travels!
