Adios Barcelona!

If you've missed the previous Barcelona posts, you can check them out here:

Barcelona - And the Rest

It was time to say goodbye to Barcelona and board Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas for our cruise. Little did we know, our balcony would offer an amazing view of Barcelona.

And one of my favorite parts of the city that we DIDN'T get to see except as we breezed by on the way into the city from the airport: Mont Juric itself. It's a gigantic Jewish cemetery, and is the other side of the hill that the Olympic Stadium, MNAC and St Peter's Arena are on.

You may want to click on that photo to enlarge it. The many, many squares are resting places.

here's a wide angle view:

This is my mom & I on our balcony (isn't she CUTE??)

I continued our picture taking with a few shots of our cabin & balcony. If you're curious, we stayed in a Junior Suite, which offers significantly more room than regular balcony cabins. And don't get me wrong, most cabins on ships aren't especially spacious. Don't get me started on the bathrooms...

Looking from the door to the balcony

And from the balcony to the door

The door on the right is our presto-chango closet (yes, a small walk in, which makes for dreamy storage!). The bathroom is opposite of the closet. Those are our two mini-twin beds (small but comfy!)

We headed up to catch up with the rest of our group. No surprise we found them at the Pool Bar

We had a beverage, then some lunch, and before we knew it, it was time for muster drill (mustard drill).

We were treated to our own private muster drill given by expert travel agent, Pammy Schleif.

Then we were setting sail. Adios Barcelona!!

The pilot boat escorts us to sea

Up next: Provence, France.
