Only the Welsh. Anyway look at your itinery it tells you what time the ship sail.
The latest you can board is 1 hr before sailaway.
Easyjet from Bristo.
Amsterdam is a super hub airport - far better than uk airports, and all on one level with escalators that work, plenty of signage and nice people. I use it for business and leisure. Try to get to the ship for noon, latest boarding will be about 3 pm. Forget Birmingham - Queues, delays and more queue.
Easyjet fly from Bristol direct to Barcelona looking at the moment they have flights going at 10.30 am arriving 13.40 for £105.08 on 27th October unable to check your flights back as unsure of the date but go onto www.easyjet.com
Hope this helps
You can fly direct from Cradiff on BMIbaby but it is an evening flight so you would need to stay overnight in Barcelona. Similarly flights from Birmingham are in the evening
We flew from Stanstead with Ryanair to Barcelona (Girona) which is about an hour coach ride to Barcelona City Centre then a short taxi ride to the port. Went out at in good time and arranged a return in line with travel agents guidelines when we could have flown back earlier. Sailed on the Voyager of the Seas had a fantastic time 1st class on board

We flew straight from gatwick for our flight, but other people we met flew into amsterdam and had about an hours wait for the next connection and found it fine. You should have the latest boarding time on your cruise ticket/itinerary, we have been on two cruises, one we had to board by 4pm for a 5pm departure and the other by 7pm for a 8pm departure. I think rule of thumb is one hour before the ship sails.
To be sure of boarding, it really would be better to spend a night in Barcelona prior to departure. As for the return, our ship was five hours late into Barcelona, and it was lucky we had booked late flights out or we would have missed them. Insurance may cover this . .not sure. Don't risk missing your ship!
Fly coventry to barcelona avoid flights to giron.
