Cruise passenger impacts on mobility within a port area: case of the Port of Barcelona
Rights accessOpen Access
Cruise tourism has grown rapidly worldwide over the past 30 years. This increase in cruise passengers has brought a set of economic, socio-cultural, and environmental impacts. In a port context, it is reflected in mobility problems with long waiting times and queues. To assess cruise passenger impacts, a mobility analysis was performed. The results of this analysis demonstrate the importance of the disembarkation operation. Passengers have to be moved in short periods of time. It is vital to organize mobility and to have sufficient transport modes to move passengers to their inland destinations quickly, safely, and efficiently.
