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 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.
