Over the weekend, we got the final details through about the holiday. A couple of things had changed. Some were better and some were worse.
The flight has switched from Heathrow to Gatwick. That’s closer to us, so that’s good.
But it’s switched from BA to EasyJet. That’s bad. The flight is now about five hours later in the day. Not leaving the house at 6am is obviously good. But it means that we don’t get to Barcelona until 4pm. So we’ve lost most most of our day in Barcelona.
And for some reason, they’ve upgraded us to a cabin that looks like it’s about twice the size of the one we booked (we were cheapskates and booked the cheapest cabin). A bigger cabin is obviously good, but I’m also hoping that free upgrades means that the cruise isn’t fully booked. Half empty cruise ships is also good.
The flight back is a bit of a disappointment too. We’re flying back from San Jose in Costa Rica. But it’s a Delta flight via Atlanta. So it looks like we get to spend about four hours hanging around Atlanta airport.
It’s not all good but, on balance, I think we’ve done alright out of these changes.
