Can you walk ashore from cruise ships in Barcelona to old city center

Can you walk ashore from cruise ships in Barcelona to old city center?


Yes and No. For most guests on the big cruise ships the answer is no.

Most cruise ships dock at Moll Adossat and from there it's a 25 minute walk to the edge of the old part of Barcelona, so most cruise passengers choose to take a cab or the port shuttle bus called the Cruisebus.  

To decide if you want to walk from your cruise ship to the city, find out first which Barcelona cruise ship terminal your cruise ship will dock at.

From smaller ships you can walk straight into the port area and the gothic area.

Where are Barcelona's cruise ship terminals?


Barcelona's has seven cruise ship terminals. 

You can easily walk ashore from the small ship terminals M, N, S

You can walk ashore from big ship terminals A, B, C, D but it takes 30 to 40 minutes and most passengers choose to take cruise shuttle bus, taxi or private transfer


Where do small cruise cruise ships dock in Barcelona?


Small cruise ships dock at 3 terminals M, N, S, which are very close to Barcelona's old city center.


Where do big cruise ships dock in Barcelona?


The big cruise ships, like the Oasis class ships of Royal Caribbean Cruises - and Norwegian Cruise Lines all dock on the Barcelona's biggest cruise ship pier called Moll D'Adossat pier

Moll D'Adossat has four terminals A, B, C and D.



To walk from Terminals A, B, C and D terminals walk is about 30 minutes to 45 minutes to the edge of the old city

The Moll D'Adossa Barcelona cruise port terminals is 5km / 3 miles from the city center of Barcelona and 2km / 1 mile from the old gothic area of Barcelona. 

You can see the city from the cruise ships when you dock but it is a little further than you think to walk - 30 minutes walk to the edge of the old city called "Ciutat Vella."

Cuitat Vella means old city. There are several neighbourhoods in the Ciutat Vella.

We recommend 1 day to walk around the Ciutat Vella neighbourhoods. 

The hop-on-hop-off buses do not go inside the Ciutat Vella - they only go around it.
