How to get to Barcelona Cruise Terminal:
Find your route to the cruise port from either the city centre or Barcelona airport below. From taxis, and private transfers to even a walk along the streets of Barcelona.
From the City Centre To Barcelona Cruise Ports:
Many people on fly cruises choose to go 1 or 2 days before their cruise to explore and sightsee, booking hotels in the city centre and then heading down to the port on departure day. The distance between Barcelona city centre from the cruise port is around 5 kilometres but many hotels are located very close to the cruise ports meaning you could even walk depending on your luggage!
The different options to travel to and from the port are:
Taxi- cheap and quick (normally less than 10 minutes). Taxi fare: approx. €20.00
Private transfer- book online before the trip and skip the queues - get into the city centre quicker for a stress-free arrival. Little more expensive than other modes of transport
Walking- You can walk from the cruise port to the city centre. It is a simple 15-minute walk from the North and South terminals. It is not recommended to walk from terminals A, B, C, D, or E as it is a 2km walk to Columbus Monument - foot of La Rambla. That would make it a total of 5km.

The bus coordinates its schedule and frequency depending on the arrival and departures of the cruises, not a regular bus schedule, and runs on demand.
