Carnival to build and run €30m Barcelona port

Construction to begin in 2016, scheduled to open in 2018
Cruise giant Carnival Corporation is to invest €30 million to build and operate a second private cruise terminal at the Port of Barcelona.
Construction will begin on the 11,500 square metre terminal in 2016 and it is scheduled to open in 2018 at the port’s Adossat wharf.
“As an all-new, next-generation cruise facility, the terminal will be designed to enhance the overall cruise experience for Carnival Corporation’s guests,” said Michel Nestour, managing director of Carnival Corporation terminal operations in Barcelona.
Seven of Carnival’s 10 cruise brands use the Port of Barcelona. The company operates four additional global ports, including Puerta Maya in Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Turk Cruise Center in the Turks and Caicos Islands; Mahogany Bay in Roatan, Honduras; and Long Beach in California. Carnival will also open Amber Cove in October 2015 in the Puerta Plata region of the Dominican Republic.
