The cruise ship terminal Puerto Buenos Aires, opened in 2001, is located about ½ miles from the city center. If your ship is moored at one of the outlying docks at the port, a complimentary shuttle bus is provided to deliver you to your ship. Taxis are readily available and very reasonable.

AntTraveller is it also the terminal for the ferry service to Montevideo?

The cruise terminal for the Buguebus is next to Puerto Madero. This terminal is different from the terminal for large ocean ships(Celebrity,Holland America,etc).

The travel time between the two terminals is around 10min via taxi.

Hey AntTraveller, I am also in Sydney and trying to find out where Norwegian Cruise ship would dock in BA. Would this be in the 'new' Puerto Buenos Aires? I need to arrange car hire and trying to do it on the net and it keeps giving me only Puerto Madero as an option for the port. Is it the same place?

NCl arrives at Puerto Nuevo with the other large passengers ships. This port is 1km away from Puerto Madero and a 5-10min taxi ride away.
