We stayed at the Eurostar no more than 2 miles for the pier. This is a five star $$$$ like the Hotel Arts but not as good a deal. This is also on of the hotels that can book with Disney. We did the booking ourselves. As we checked in and waited for our room the 10 day cruises were coming in the lobby to assemble for their bus transfers to the pier. I was able to spend some time pumping them up with excitement.
Enjoying a glass of wine at a cafa in Barcelona marks the end to a great vacation!
