Terminal Information

Palacruceros Cruise Terminal is a latest generation cruise terminal designed by Studio Vicini (Arch. Luigi Vicini and Andrea Piazza). Opened since 24 April 2007, it has been the center of operations of the major cruise shipping companies in the sector.  It is located at Pier Adossat at the Port of Barcelona. Adossat dock has a depth of 16m and a length of 1.3 km, allowing for the safe and easy maneuvering and berthing of vessels.

When passengers enter the terminal they are found in two-level structure intuitively organized to enable a logical flow of in-bound and out-bound guests. Following ISPS regulations, terminal access is restricted only to passengers and employees. On the second level, passengers can either board their cruise for the first time or for those who have enjoyed a day in the city of Barcelona, do some last minute shopping.  Also located on this floor are all of the services necessary to perform check-in operations. A wonderful terrace overlooking the Mediterranean makes the wait much more pleasant for passengers as they board their vessel. Access to the vessel is done by hydraulic gangways which are safely connected to each ship.

An expansion project is currently underway at Palacruceros that will effectively handle the continued growth expected for the terminal in the coming years.  This new addition to the existing building will add an extra 1,300 m2 of surface, beneficial to the thousands of expected guests landing from some of the largest cruise ships in the current fleets.

The new extension is expected to be operational Fall 2014.
