Getting to Barcelona & Getting Onboard

When should I plan to arrive in Barcelona before the cruise?

When booking your arrival flights at Barcelona’s Airport (BCN) please consider unforeseen factors such as flight delays. We strongly recommend arriving in Barcelona at least one day prior to the cruise (Saturday, Sept 3rd, 2022). But if you are planning on arriving the day the cruise departs (Sunday, Sept 4th, 2022), we recommend that you arrive in Barcelona no later than 12:00 PM. Arrive at the ship NO LATER THAN 3:30 PM. The Norwegian Epic starts her check-in as early as 10:00 AM and boarding process around 12:00 noon.

After the cruise, the Epic will arrive back in Barcelona very early on Sunday the 11th, but getting off the ship takes time. Your flight home should NOT depart earlier than 10:30 AM on Sunday morning.

Norwegian offers transfers from & to Barcelona’s Airport (BCN) for $25.00 USD per person. Transfers can be purchased via iCruise. Please ask for details at the time of booking.

Pre-cruise hotel packages in Barcelona may also be available later in 2021.
