On arrival at Barcelona you will find that there is a small Barcelona Turisme tourist information desk. These desks are scheduled to have the same opening hours as the arrival times of the cruise ships, ensuring that it will definitely be open when you leave the ship. The staff at the desk will be able to provide you with basic tourist information for Barcelona. You can pick up maps and leaflets and ask questions about tourist attractions.
Unfortunately, this is only a small information point. This means that staff will not be able to help you with booking accommodation or sell you items such as the Barcelona Card.
To get more detailed information, to book tickets or book a hotel, you will need to go to one of Barcelona's bigger tourist offices such as the one in Plaça de Catalunya. For details of Barcelona's tourist offices, see our Guide to Tourist Offices in Barcelona
All of the terminal building is designed to accommodate limited mobility travellers. There are lifts, widened doors and disabled toilets. However, if you wish to receive extra assistance whilst you are in the terminal building you will need to speak directly to the cruise company that you have booked your trip with. For full details, see our Guide to Disabled Services in Barcelona Port.
The Palacruceros Terminal is fully equipped to deal with large numbers of travellers at one time. If you arrive at the terminal building with time to spare you can make the most of the terrace bar and children's area.
