Port of Barcelona
Port of Barcelona
For things to do in Barcelona, see our port of call description, starting on page 516.
While the Disney Magic is in the Mediterranean, she sails out of the Port of Barcelona (Port de Barcelona), which is also known as Port Vell. Barcelona’s port is the busiest Mediterranean port. The port area used to be a bit rundown and seedy, but it was rebuilt in time for the 1992 Summer Olympics, which were held not far from the port. More information is available at the port’s official web site at http://www.portdebarcelona.cat.
The Disney Magic typically docks at Moll D’Adossat Terminal C. [Our Mediterranean scouting cruise (see page 115) used Terminal B.] The cruise check-in buildings that serve each of these terminals are of recent construction—the one we used was particularly good with plenty of check-in stations, chairs to wait upon, and even a few shops to browse.
Porters will be on hand to collect all luggage (tip €1–2/bag) except your carry-ons before you enter the terminal—luggage is scanned and delivered to your stateroom later, so be sure to attach those luggage tags you received with your cruise documents. Security scans your carry-ons before you enter the terminal, and you will need to pass through a metal detector.
Check-in and Embarkation begin at 11:00 am. Plan to arrive before 3:30 pm - All Aboard time is 4:30 pm.
Tip: To see a detailed aerial view of the port, download the free Google Earth program at http://earth.google.com. (The cruise pier is the long jetty running parallel to the shoreline, just east of Montjuic.)
