Trasmediterranea Customer Reviews

  • "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.

  • "Missed ferry, no instructions "

    There were no instruction which ferry port to go to. Gran Canaria has 2 ferry ports run by the same company. We went to the new ferry terminal to be told there was no boat, the other ferry was 3 miles away, we o ly had 10 minutes and didn't make it. Had to pay more than twice the price for the fast ferry an hour later. I recommended direct ferries to many travellers and I won't anymore, because there was 6 in my group and 3 had booked where i had fire Ted them to the site. So it was obviously very embarrassing situation for me.

  • "Awesome Experience"

    I particularly want to thank the staff member who was EXCEPTIONALLY helpful and kind and courteous. He helped me with my suitcase on and off the ferry, helped my friend with his dog and served a mean cup of coffee behind the bar. Thank you. You made the trip very pleasant. Just wished I'd got your name😁
