Where does MSC World Europa dock in Barcelona

Where does MSC Splendida cruise ship dock and depart from in Barcelona? In 2024 MSC Splendida docks at ;Terminal A, B, C, D or E at Moll Adossat wharf/pier. All MSC cruises arrive and depart from Terminals A, B, C, D or E at the Port of Barcelona wharf/pier called the 'Moll Adossat'. Moll Adossat is the Catalan language name - the word moll means pier in Catalan. This dock is called 'Muelle de Adosado' in the Spanish language.

Can you walk ashore from Moll Adossat?

From Moll Adossat, it's a 30 minute walk to the edge of the old part of Barcelona's center (called Cuitat Vella) where you can find a metro station Drassanes and stops for the Barcelona hop-on-hop-off tour buses. 30 minutes is a bit of a walk with bags, so many cruise passengers choose to take a cab from the cruise ship to hotels or destinations in the city - or they take the Barcelona Port shuttle bus from Moll Adossat, which is called the Cruisebus

From Moll Adossat pier to Barcelona Airport

Barcelona Airport is 15 km (9-mile) drive away from the port and Moll Adossat. There is no direct bus or train connection between Barcelona Airport and the Barcelona cruise port. The easiest way to the cruise ship terminals on Moll Adossat from airport is by taxi or transfer. There is a fixed taxi price for taxi rides between Barcelona airport and the MSC cruise ship dock..

Alternatively from Barcelona airport you can take the airport shuttle called Aerobus to Plaça Espanya and from there continue to the cruise port by taxi. There are many taxi at Pl. Espanya but it's hardly worth the bother. A taxi or transfer is the best option, in our opinion.

From Moll Adossat to Sants train station

Barcelona Sants railway station is about 6 km away from the the Moll Adossat dock. There is both a taxi and a bus service to the port from outside the station.
