This guide is applicable only for when the ship was operated by Balearia and this information should not be used as a guide for the ships current or future operations:
Sitting at an impressive length of 154 metres and with a beam of 24 metres, the Bahama Mama is an impressive vessel that can carry up to 1000 passengers at a time as well as up to 126 vehicles. The mammoth size of the ship doesn't hinder its speed - the boat is capable of travelling at a speed of 23 knots - making it one of the most convenient ways to travel around southern Europe.
A regular lounge and a superior lounge are available for seating; the regular lounge offers cosy seating in rows of armchairs, whilst the Superior Lounge affords much more spacious seating in large, comfortable armchairs. The cabins are fairly simplistic, but can hold from 2-4 people, alongside a table and chairs for relaxing with friends and family.
A cafeteria is on board serving fresh food across a range of different cuisines, so there will be something for every passenger. A bar is also onboard serving a variety of sweet and savoury snacks, and for those who like to dine in style, eat at the delicious on board restaurant.
In the summer time when the sun shines down on the upper deck, the perfect way to keep yourself cool is the outdoor swimming pool. Do a couple of lengths or simply bask in the rays of the sunshine, whilst staying refreshed with the outdoor bar. As you sip on your chilled beverage, keep up to date with world events by browsing the web on your phone or computer device.
The boat is wheelchair accessible and friendly staff are on hand to assist with any requirements.
Please Note: Whilst we have taken great care in making our Bahama Mama guide as accurate as possible, onboard facilities, services and entertainment may vary depending on the date and time of year that you travel, facilities mentioned may change without notification and ferry companies reserve the right to operate vessels other than those mentioned at time of booking without prior notification.

Lo que más me gusto fue el camarote y la amabilidad del personal. Lo que menos el ruido de los otros baños al usar el inodoro, el aire acondicionado que no se puede bajar y la manera de avisar por la mañana. Por qué no usan los altavoces de los camarotes? En otros barcos es lo normal.

"Ferry worth it!"
I chose to sail with Baleria from Ibiza to Barcelona. The ship was very well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. The cafeteria was amazing. The chef prepared a wonderful Vegetarian meal for me! The best I have had in Spain! I am glad I chose Bakeria!

"Beautiful crossing. Confusing boarding "
Great boat beautiful port lovely crossing. Our Spanish is poor and so we didn’t wholly understood that they unload all passengers apart from driver, from the cars and pass them through security and then walk them on. Found ourselves going through security with no passports which remained in the car with my husband! Found nothing about this procedure online - heads-up!

"Lovely ferry - but Traumatic for the dog!"
Everything was as was written - although the ferry terminal is not marked on the boarding passes/vouchers, which would have been helpful as there are a number of Balearia terminals at Barcelona. Only regret is that our poor dog spent a night in kennels in the top deck with a number of stressed barking dogs and cold condensation coming down. Wish they’d make an exception about this.

"Denia - Ibiza"
Very good all round, on time, very fast ship, good facilities. Don't book to early, prices drop nearer the time of sailing.
