Barcelona Travel Alert
If you’re not aware, the folks in Barcelona have just voted to secede from Spain. Spain says, “no you don’t”.
So now, the world is on pins and needles wondering if this will wind up in a civil war.
To learn more, read this article in the New York Times.
Barcelona is a major hub for Mediterranean cruises. Therefore, if you have travel plans that involve a stop in Barcelona, you should pay close attention to this breaking development.
We have reached out to our travel insurance companies to understand what this might mean from a travel insurance perspective. Also, I’m very certain that if civil unrest does break out in Barcelona, the cruise lines will simply avoid the area and reroute their ships and itineraries.
As we have quite a number of clients cruising in and around Barcelona, we will bring you new information as we receive updates from the media, travel insurance companies and the cruise lines. Stay tuned.
