Q: We are 5 adults with 4 cases, can we fit in one taxi to go to store the luggage for few hours before we check in the cruise, because we arrive early in the morning.
A: You can travel to Barcelona Sants Rail station from the Airport on the RENFE train that runs from the airport. You can easily take on your luggage on the RENFE train. Barcelona Sants (Estació Sants) have a manned luggage storage department and you can leave your luggage there.

Another option is to take the Aerobus, Barcelona airport express bus to Plaça Catalunya, which is Barcelona main square, right in the city centre of Barcelona. There is a left luggage next to Plaça Catalunya where you can leave your luggage.
Most Barcelona taxis are licensed to carry a maximum of 4 people and no more. There are a much smaller number of Taxis that are licensed to carry up to 6 passengers however you would either need to reserve these in advance or specifically ask the taxi attendant to find a taxi for 6. The other alternative is to hire 2 Taxis. Most tourists make the mistake of thinking that all van taxis have a license to carry 6 people; however, this is not the case. Only a small number of van taxis actually have the special license to carry 6 people.
Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.

You say you only have a few hours - this does not leave you much time to see much of the city. If you had half a day then perhaps it is worth storing your luggage and having a look around, but with only a few hours then you really don't have much time.
