The main cruise companies trust in Avant Grup’s, coach company for cruises in Spain, with its head office in Barcelona and Malaga coaches and minibuses to take care of their passengers transfers, visits and excursions, especially in Barcelona and in the rest of the Mediterranean cities.


The Mediterranean has also established itself as one of the most important destinations in the cruise market. Each year, the number of cruises that travel through this sea grows, therefore the number of people visiting the cities that take part in the cruises itinerary, also rises.


Barcelona and Malaga position themselves as European capital cities of cruise tourism, as a base port for some companies, or simply a passing through port.

Culture, history, gastronomy and life style is what makes Barcelona and Malaga so attractive to the cruising industry. Each day, thousands of people embark and disembark in Barcelona and Malaga, anxious of enjoying the main tourist attractions, not just in the main city centre, but also its surroundings.

Thousands of coaches “set sail” from the ports of Barcelona and Malaga every day. Many excursions can be enjoyed from these ports. Barcelona is known for the visit to the Sagrada Familia, the Pedralbes Monastery, the gothic quarter and the football stadium Camp Nou, or its surroundings such as Montserrat, and the wineries in Penedés. From Malaga, visits to the white Andalusian towns in the Costa del Sol are renown.

All this movement requires a great deal of logistics organization in the mobility of the people for the cruising companies and the consignatory agencies in the ports of Barcelona, Malaga and the rest of the cities on the Mediterranean coast.
