For any of you who have read my other post regarding Baltic versus Mediterranean cruise, thank you for your help and we've decided on the DCL Med cruise. Although it's too early to book our flights, I am trying to have everything planned out so that we will be able to book on the first possible day tickets become available (we're using miles). It seems like the only direct flight to Newark airport is at 10:45 AM and the ship is expected to arrive in the port (Barcelona) at 7 AM. After reading other posts on this board, I know that we'll need to carry our own luggage to speed up the process, but I still have no idea if it is feasible that we'd be able to make a 10:45 AM flight. We really would like to avoid having to stay over an extra night in Barcelona (need to get back to work!) and also would like to avoid an indirect flight (we'll be traveling with a 21 month old!). The cruise line gave me the safe answer that they recommend booking flights 12:30 PM or later, but I was hoping that seasoned European cruisers on this board can give me more "practical" advice! Thanks!
10:45 AM flight too risky when ship is expected in Barcelona port at 7 AM?
