very easy: just take the green metro line L3 and go out at Drassanes Station

This a useful map of the port - Passangers terminal

It's almost a kilometre from Drasannes Metro station to the Port entrance and depending on which Quay your ship is moored at it could be another 2 kms to the mooring.

You could get the Metro then pick up the Port Shuttle (the Blue Bus) from the Columbus Monument about 250m from the Metro, which goes to the Quays for 2€ per person

But if there are two of you with luggage it might be easier getting a taxi rather than dealing with Metro steps / escalator / elevators and a metro, a short walk and a bus with two metro fares and two bus fares. A taxi should be around 20€

With GoogleMaps it says 600 m, 8 mins walk from Drassaness Metro to Moll de Barcelona entrance, BUT of course it depends on your docks. You can check your cruise dock here:

portdebarcelona.cat/en/…cruceros1

This link is also useful:

The cruiser terminals at the Port of Barcelona have excellent transport links: the World Trade Center terminals are just 400 metres away from the public transport network (bus and metro.) The T3 PORTBUS shuttle takes cruise passengers from Plaza de Colón in central Barcelona to terminals A, B, C and D (Palacruceros) on the Adossat wharf.

HereBarcelona,

Moll de Barcelona isn't where the cruise ships go from. That's where the Balearic ferries, etc go from.

The entrance to the cruise port is further along, well over 800 metres on Google maps, and the furthest cruise quay is over 3km from Drassanes.

Even if it was "only" 600m (that, as said above, is not, and it can be much more) it would not be a fun walk with all the luggage most cruise-goers carry...

The metro will have some steps and corridors to keep in mind too, if you decide on the metro+shuttle bus option.

So, Luis... unless you're traveling with very light luggage, I would recommend you a taxi.

Luis A R,

I checked and not able to find the terminal for holland America (arrival and departure) but probably the best solution is to take the blue bus from Colon that goes to all terminals and ask on board.

Look at this map. If I discover something will let you know.
