Took the Oceania free shuttle into Bilbao and visited on our own. Walked to the Casco Viejo (Old City) and explored, then walked along the river, across the striking Zurizubbi pedestrian bridge and continued on to the impressive Guggenheim Museum. On our 2nd day in Bilbao we took an Oceania excursion to San Sebastian - loved the city. Highlights were extraordinary view of the city from Mont Igueldo and sampling pintos (Basque tapas) in pinxto bars in the old city. Would have liked more time there.... Read Less

We took the ship shuttle for 10 Euros (cash only) to Bilbao. We saw the Guggenheim and Old town. We had excellent tapas and I bought Spanish shoes. It was a great day.

Complimentary bus service was adequate and took us to the town centre. The place was Ok, but other than seeing the Museum there was nothing else noteworthy about the place

Loved the city. We booked Guggenheim tickets well in advance, so took the cruise shuttle bus into the city and easily did the museum in 2 hours right at 10 when it opened. We then took the funicular up the hill to a great overlook, then came back down and walked along the river to old town for tapas and vino. We want to come back and spend at least 3 or 4 days in the future to explore more. Read Less

Skipped the 15.60euro shuttle and got the local Metro into town (20 mins walk from ship) for just 1.70 euros, then bought a 10euro Bizcaia ticket for 24 hours unlimited travel on buses, trams, Metro, suburban trains, and funicular railway. Nice parks in the centre apart from the river and Guggenheim museum, and superb views from the top of the funicular, and from the riverside art of the tram route. Read Less

The ship's shuttle took us into central Bilbao about 500 yards from the Guggenheim. What a fantastic piece of architecture, inside and out. A must to visit. Busy city with an old town to explore.

Again we took a private tour, which also included a tapas tour of Bilbao tapas bars. All very nice. In the morning we drove out to Gernika, which was very informative and interesting to see.
