Transfer To Barcelona Cruise Terminal Port From Barcelona Airport – Arriving In Spain For Our Cruise

The Barcelona Cruise Ship Terminal In Southern Spain is one of the busiest Cruise Ship ports in the world rivaling those in Miami and Ft Lauderdale Florida. This video shows you what to expect once you arrive at the Barcelona Airport, also some of the sights along the way between the Airport and Cruise Ship Terminal.

The Barcelona International Airport is also one of the busiest in Europe with over 35 million passengers each year. The Airport itself is an ultra-modern wonder of steel and glass with an obvious design geared towards future expansion. The Barcelona Airport and Cruise terminal are only about 8 miles apart or about a 30-40 minute drive depending on traffic levels. The drive is partially highway and part surface roads with the slowest portion being within the huge port of Barcelona itself.

The Port of Barcelona is visited by at least 15 major cruise ships throughout the year and services approximately 2.6 million cruise passengers per year including those traveling to popular Spanish island destinations. On any given day you may see mega ships from major cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Princess, MSC, and other European lines such as Aida. It is no surprise that the Cruise terminals are clean, modern and spacious as any found in other major cruise ship hubs. Barcelona seems to be geared for tourism and has invested heavily into making Barcelona a world class destination.

Ports of call / Destinations included Barcelona Spain, Cannes France, Florence, Civitavecchia, Rome, The Vatican, Salerno, Amalfi, Pompeii Italy, Athens, Santorini Greece, Kusidasi, Ephesus Turkey.
