Legacy Cruise – More Barcelona and Setting Sail

We actually had a couple of spare hours before getting on the ship so we visited one of Barcelona’s (and perhaps the world’s) finest architectural wonders. Construction began on this stone church (I forget the name) in the 1880s. It’s getting close to its completion. They estimate that at the current rate it should be complete in the next 15 years or so. Definitely a must-see in Barcelona.

That’s all the time we had, so we made our way to the Norwegian Jade. Built in 2006, the 965 foot long ship weighs 95,000 tons and sails with 2,378 guests and 1,021 crew members. About 150 of those guests belong to our Legacy group. We had a great meet-and-greet, and then shared dinner together in the Grand Pacific Dining Room. Around 7:30pm the ship left as the sun set over the hills. The evening’s entertainment included magic, juggling, comedy, and singing.

Legacy classes start early in the morning so I’m going to call it a night. Here are a few pictures from our trip so far. Wish you all were here with us!

The church is called "Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia" or simply "Sagrada Familia" which I think means Church of the Holy Family (although my Spanish is not that great!

The name of the church is the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, or, Sagrada Familia (Holy Family). It is a spectacular, privately funded Roman Catholic cathedral. Glad you got to see it!
