Spotlight: Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain’s capital of the Catalonia region, is home to Europe’s busiest port of call for cruise ships.  The Port of Barcelona is a popular turn around destination for Mediterranean cruises.  The six terminals feature air conditioning, foreign exchange, duty free shops, restaurants, bars and shuttle bus.

The shuttle bus transfers passengers to Plaza de Colon in central Barcelona.  The terminals are in close proximity to both the bus and metro public transportation which allow those sailing in and out of to experience one of Spain’s most beautiful and dynamic cities.

Special Needs Group is pleased to provide service to those cruising out of Barcelona.  The following cruiselines which sail out of and into the Port of Barcelona include:  Carnival, Celebrity, Costa, Holland America, MSC, Norwegian, Oceania, Regent Seven Seas and Royal Caribbean. In addition, SNG can also provide Hotel pick-up and delivery at the start or close of a cruise.  For more information, please visit us at
