We're taking a cruise May 15 on Celebrity's Millenium, 12 nights, Barcelona to Venice. Will be arriving a couple of days early in Barcelona. Any suggestions for hotels in the moderate price range, central to "what's happening" will be appreciated. Any suggestions for restaurants and activities? Thanks.

Great cruise with a great itinerary! I did a thorough review of the cruise that you can find at

http://www.cruisereviews.com/Celebrity/Millennium43.htm

I really liked the Claris Hotel for a couple of reasons. First, it is out of the tourist crush that you will experience if you stay in the Las Ramblas / Gothic districts, yet you can walk to everywhere in Barcelona. Also, the rooms were generous in size and the included breakfast was superb. Plus, there is a Starbucks only a couple of blocks away.

Enjoy the cruise!

If you don't mind being in the midst of things, we stayed at the Royal Hotel Barcelona on Las Ramblas for a few days post cruise in June and can recommend it highly. It is a great value, centrally located and rooms and staff were both quite nice.

As for restaurants, definitely try Ciudad Condal on Rambla de Catalunya if you are looking for a great tapas restaurant. Reasonable rates, excellent food and even better ambiance. Quite popular with the residents and is within walking distance of the hotel where we stayed.
