Today was a very special day for me, many ships to photograph, Barcelona is one of my favourite cities, met with old friends and a new one from Holland that I just met yesterday, also a ships enthusiast, so this post is a thank you to all Barcelona friends and visitors to this blog, I have chosen the "SOVEREIGN" because she made me realise how much times have changed in terms of ship building, I remember when I first saw the SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS" in 1989 I didn´t like it at all, today looking at her she can be considered a classic passenger ship, ships today are not build like that anymore. "SOVEREIGN" was built at Chantiers de L´Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire in 1988, she sailed for RCI until 2008 when she was transferred to PULLMANTUR CRUISES, she is 73000 GRT and has a capacity for nearly 2900 passengers, she is a common visitor to the port of Barcelona, where she embarks thousands of passengers every year, may she remain a happy ship for many years to come, photos taken today


  1. We are going on our first cruise on Sovereign and are trying to sort out parking. Do you know which terminal she leaves from please.

  2. Thank you for your comment.

    It may vary but normally she docks at CRUISE TERMINAL B, Pont ADOSSAT, where she is seen above.

    Have a nice cruise
