Lisbon’s New Terminal Building

The Port of Lisbon have made some major changes over the past few years for cruise passengers. It used to be callers docked at Terminal de Cruzeiros de Alcântara behind the 25 de April bridge.

A little further along is the dry dock for small vessels and Terminal Cruzeiros Rocha de Conde de Obidos. I used the latter when I boarded Vision of the Seas after her 2013 refit. The terminal building was very old but is didn’t show.

By this time, the Terminal de Passageiros de Santa Apolonia had opened. It was only for calls. It is long enough to hold several ships, as shown by Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria in 2014.

On the 10th November 2017, a new terminal complex will be officially opened which include shops, bars and a viewing platform. There will also be plenty of room for taxis, buses and parked cars. Queen Victoria, Jewel of the Seas and MSC Poesia are in port that day to join in the celebrations.
