What a gorgeous way to get to Minorca. The ferry was on time and very smooth. Easy boarding and disembarking. Plenty of space on board and great views. An enjoyable experience.

There was a restaurant on the ferry where the staff was very friendly. One of the gentlemen among them (he was a bit older than the others, or looked like he had a long experience), was of special assistant with everything we needed and I think the company is lucky to have him onboard.

Excellent service, easy trip to do, even with a toddler and baby in tow. The terminal at Alcudia port is very straight forward, ferry was pleasent enough, has bar and food availiable and plenty of seating both downstairs and up on deck. Very good service

Nice trip staff very helpful, shame you can not park at the ferry terminal loads of empty space but you have to drive round the back streets of Alcudia looking for a parking space.

Alcúdia is a municipality and township of the Spanish autonomous community of the Balearic Islands, and a main tourist centre on the island of Majorca.
The original old town of Alcudia is 2 miles inland from the current coastal development. It was the Phoenicians and Greeks who first settled here, closely followed in the 2nd century BC by the Romans, who made Alcudia the capital of the island. Visitors to the old town today enter the narrow streets through one of the two gates that were constructed, along with the impressive city walls, after the conquest of the island by King Jaime I of Spain.
The actual port and holiday resort of Alcudia, where most of the hotels and tourist developments have taken place over the last 40 years, lies at the western end of the magnificent Bay of Alcudia, which runs for over 8km through Playa de Muro and onto the resort of C'an Picafort in the east.
The past can still be felt in this city as each episode of its history has been written in its streets. The city was conquered by the vandals and later belonged to the Byzantine Empire. The Muslims began to devastate it in the 7th century although the occupation was not completed until the beginnings of the 10th century. During the Muslim dominion the Medina Minurka turned its name to Ciutadella, which became the old capital of the island until 1722, when Richard Kane moved the courts of justice and the government offices to Maó. The French dominion brought an important stream of culture, which opened out to the latest ideas from Europe. The Spanish rule, which followed the second British dominion, will allow the city to accomplish an old wish: re- establish its own bishopric.
Overall Ciutadella has stood up well to the pressures of tourism and the associated development problems that come with it.
