Our flight arrives in Barcelona at 8am for a 7pm sailing. We'd like to know what time the terminal opens and what the cost of a cab ride from the BCN Airport would be? We're not sure how to handle all the free time either, esp. with baggage in tow.

I read in one of the articles that cab price from airport to city center is like 35 Euros. About Terminals i guess they start to take passengers at 12.00. Maybe it is good to check in early to the ship for a short ship tour

You will probably not get your baggage until about 9 am. At this point, just walk outside the baggage area and grab a taxi which will cost you approximately 30 Euros to the port. This means you will probably get to the port about 9:30 and you will be able to immediately drop your luggage. Than, assuming you can handle your carry-on, you would be free to explore Barcelona. You can walk from the port to the Ramblas in about 25 min or its a short taxi ride (about 10 Euros). There is also local bus service from the port to the Ramblas area. Your other option is to simply wait at the port until they allow you to check-in and go to your cabin. For most of the cruise lines, you will not be able to get on-board much before noon. Over the years, we have learned to use backpacks for our carry-on which allows us the freedom to explore with our carry-on safely on our back.
