  • "Mostly good "

    We travelled by day from Barcelona to Palma, and we were the only foot passengers on the ferry. There were maybe 30 truck drivers and tourists with cars on the whole ship so it felt rather strange, like a ghost ship. The journey was shorter than scheduled so we arrived in Palma a good hour and a half earlier than anticipated. But the bus that took us off the ferry only gave us an option of drop-off at the Cathedral or at the ferry port the other end of town. Our hotel was inbetween the two, so we had a very long walk. Coming back we went overnight. The cabin was OK. The main annoyance was that the Trasmediterranea check-in desk is so far away from the city centre. We went there in the afternoon to check in while we still had a hire car but it was closed. So in the evening after we had dropped off our hire car, we had to drag our suitcase the entire length of the marine drive which took nearly an hour. We waited an hour after checking in for a bus to arrive, then all the foot passengers had to sit on the bus with the engine running for a full half hour for no apparent reason before it took us all the way back to where we’d come from, near the Cathedral area. Why can’t they have a check-in desk near to where the ferry actually sails from? The ferry itself was fine. It looked like a good restaurant although we didn’t eat on board, and there’s a bar and a swimming pool. The seats all seem to be deliberately designed to be too uncomfortable to sleep in, so if you want to sleep you’ll have to get a cabin.

Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.

Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.

Palma Guide

The city of Palma is the capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca and contains the most sites of historical interest of any town located in the Balearic Islands. With a population of roughly 300,000 Palma's past leaders have left their mark on the city with its impressive buildings which includes the beautiful Le Seu Cathedral. The city is characterised by narrow streets, secluded courtyards, a harbour and some fine examples of restored historic buildings and all combine to make the city a wonderful place to explore on foot. The wide avenue that is Passeig d'es Born is the city's main promenade and apart from dissecting the city, this tree lined street contains many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The city's walls were constructed on the site of medieval walls and featured galleries that ran along the top, where the strong defence could protect the island from marauders. The walls include a walkway that is popular with both locals and visitors and is where lovely views over the cathedral and old town can be had.

From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations that include Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
