We also give some tips on why you may wish to consider a minibus transfer over public transport when arriving at the cruise port.

Depending on the number of people requiring the transfer service on the day will determine if it is a minibus or coach. On this page we will use the word minibus but bear in mind we mean minibus or coach.

Arriving at Barcelona Cruise port you have the unenviable task of making your way to your city centre hotel, the airport or some other destination outside of Barcelona. With several other thousand people leaving the cruise liner the queues will be long for public taxis or the public cruise shuttle bus. But, there is an alternative. You can arrange your transport to meet you directly from your disembarkation point at the cruise port terminal to take you to your next destination. This will not only save you time, but also the stress of finding yourself in a new city and working out your route.

There are two types of transfer that you can arrange in advance. The shared minibus transfer or the private car transfer.


Shared minibus transfer from the cruise terminals

With the shared minibus transfer the driver will be waiting at your terminal with a bright yellow holding a card with the name of the transfer company written on it. The name of the transfer company will be on your booking voucher once you make your booking.
