Miami-based cruise company Carnival Corporation & plc officially opened its second cruise terminal at the Port of Barcelona on May 5.

Located on the port’s Adossat wharf, the Helix terminal will accommodate Carnival Corporation’s new class of next-generation “green” cruise ships that will be fully operated by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“After years of working closely with our extraordinary partners in Barcelona, including the port, its support network of local businesses and the city, we are absolutely thrilled to introduce our world-class Helix cruise center to welcome guests from around the world to Europe’s best-loved cruise port and to Barcelona, one of the world’s greatest cities and regions,” said Giora Israel, senior vice president of global ports and destination development for Carnival Corporation.

The terminal, which features 12,500 square meters, pairs with the existing Palacruceros terminal to welcome ships from eight of the cruise company’s global cruise line brands – AIDA Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn and P&O Cruises (UK).

Carnival Corporation is expecting to accommodate over one million passenger movements at the port in 2018, with 289 calls by 38 different ships.
