How close is the Vigo city center to the dock where the cruise ships dock?
It depends on where the ship docks. The Cruise line should be able to tell you where they dock. Some are not even in the town of Vigo. Those that are at the port's terminal can walk to the old town and the "Basket Street". Also there are many seafood restaurants in Vigo. Try the Paella, Spain's famous food dish, in the harbor town.
The port of Vigo is right in the heart of the city. To read a good report by another person who had an experience similair to what you are going to live in Vigo ( a positive one of course ) go to the following link, it gives detailed information of what you can see and do.

There is no real city centre as the shops are spread over a few districts of Vigo.
