That is not the case. Most medium to large ships leave from Moll Adossat across the bridge from the city.
Small ships and very occasionally larger ships leave from the World Trade Centre.
Prinsendam is border line and could be either but most likely Moll Adossat.
It is not necessary to know the terminal. If you get a taxi and tell them the ship name they will know where to take you.
We have been berthed at both sites on different Prinsendam cruises. It was nice to just walk out of the port, down a long driveway, and be at the base of Las Ramblas. This was a port stop of that cruise, when the cruises started in Barcelona the ship was over the bridge. There is usually a transfer bus from the Columbus statue area to and from the ship if it is located over the bridge. For embarcation, take a cab right to the check in area and be prepared to walk quite a bit from there to the gangway with your hand luggage.
