Getting to cruise ships

There are no direct bus or train shuttle services to cruise ships from city center or from the airport. Taxis or private transfers are best option for connections from airport, train stations or city center to cruise ships.

If you are near the port area then there is a there is a public cruisebus shuttle service that runs from the Columbus monument at the port end of the walking street called La Rambla to the Moll Adossat pier.

This service goes to the four main cruise ship terminals located on Moll Adossat, but the cruisebus port bus is mostly practical for transfers, if your hotel is within walking distance of the cruisebus port bus stop.

If you are in a hotel or apartment that is a little further awayfrom the port bus - then you might as well take a taxi all the way to your cruise ship.
