We always recommend arriving in the departure port city at least one day prior to your cruise to avoid delays by the airlines (or any other unforeseen factor). Barcelona offers non-stop entertainment with multiple options. Pre-cruise hotel packages in Barcelona may be available. Please ask at the time of booking.
But if you are planning on arriving at the port on the day the cruise departs (October 18, 2020), the Norwegian Epic starts her check-in as early as 10:00 AM and boarding process around 12:00 noon on embarkation day. So when booking your arrival flights we recommend that you arrive in Barcelona no later than 12:00 PM on October 18, 2020. Arrive at the ship no later than 3:30 PM.
Return flights should be planned to depart 10:30 AM or later on October 25, 2020.
Norwegian only offers transfers from/to Barcelona’s Airport (BCN) for $25.00 USD per person. Transfers can be purchased when doing your online check-in after booking or with iCruise.com client services.
