After a successful project with Carnival Cruise Line manufacturing and installing the Amber Cove port sign in the Dominican Republic, SouthWood was entrusted with creating signage for the new terminal in Barcelona, Spain. Europe’s newest passenger cruise terminal, named Helix, is in the port’s Adossat wharf.
Helix was designed to accommodate Carnival’s new class of green cruise ships that will be fully operated by LNG. Designed by Catalan architecture firm Battle I Roig, Helix reflects modern architectural style with straight lines and a minimalist concept that will create a contemporary and comfortable guest environment, says Carnival. The aluminum letters of the building monument are sleek and clean, reflecting the modern, minimalistic style.
Construction on the project began in July 2016.Carnival held a ceremony on Saturday, May 5, 2018 to officially open the terminal. The 133,500-ton Carnival Horizon departed on its inaugural sailing from the port on April 2.Carnival Corporation is expecting to accommodate over one million passengers through Barcelona.
