You may find it convenient to stay near the port the night before your cruise, or even for a few nights before/after your cruise to explore the city of Barcelona (as we did). You can reserve on your own, or book a pre-/post-cruise stay hotel package (from one to three nights) through Disney Cruise Line. Note that children staying in your room incur an extra cost, and that the number of hotel rooms booked through DCL must match the number of staterooms. These five hotels have been offered by Disney for pre-/post-cruise stays (we’ve even evaluated one firsthand for you—the AC Barcelona):

Our room (#1116) at AC
Barcelona
by Jennifer Marx

This sleek, modern hotel is located near the convention center, in the modern Diagonal Mar shopping district, about 40 minutes (14 km.) from the airport, 2.5 miles from the center of downtown, near a Metro stop, and only 300 meters from the Mediterranean. Built in 2004, the 368-room, 22-story hotel has many modern amenities and panoramic views of the sea. Rooms have twin beds (in our case, they were pushed together to make one king bed), air conditioning, cable TV, phone, CD/radio stereo, free minibar with soft drinks, high-speed Internet access (€12/24-hour period), hair dryer, designer bath toiletries, and bidets. Each room is decorated with dark wood floors and lots of glass—the windows even open. Hotel services include complimentary newspapers, a fitness center, outdoor pool, Turkish bath, solarium, sauna, and massage room. WiFi is available in public areas—there’s also a public Internet area with laptops available (but you must still pay the Internet access fee mentioned above). The hotel has an excellent restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that serves traditional Mediterranean cuisine; 24-hour room service is also offered. A complimentary hot breakfast buffet was included in our room rate—the food was delicious and the selection is excellent. We enjoyed our room overlooking the city on the 11th floor, but we didn’t feel the room was child-friendly—too much glass, including the bathroom door! Otherwise the room was spacious for a European hotel, service was good, and we loved breakfast—we recommend this hotel. Check out the 13th floor observation deck for glorious views.
