Most major cruise lines with vessels scheduled to visit Barcelona in the next few days go ahead with the calls, despite the terror attack yesterday.
A spokeswoman for Oceania Cruises' parent company said a Barcelona visit scheduled for Friday by Sirena would take place as planned. So would a visit scheduled for Sunday by sister brand NCL's Norwegian Epic.
Brilliance of the Seas was the only major cruise ship from a line that markets to North Americans visiting the city of Barcelona on Thursday. Two ships catering to British tourists, Britannia and TUI Discovery 2, were also visiting. Officials accounted for all guests and crew from the vessels.
Thursday's terror attack took place along Las Ramblas, a tree-lined pedestrian route in Barcelona that is among the top destinations for cruise passengers visiting the city. The beginning of Las Ramblas is close to Barcelona's main terminal.
