We were very lucky to have a very calm sea for our crossings both ways between Barcelona and Palma. The ship was very well run and comfortable, and the staff were very efficient and pleasant. Muchas gracias!

We both had a most comfortable crossing in both directions. We took advantage of having a cabin for both trips. The cabins were clean and comfortable, and we were very surprised as to the quality and choice of the lunch time menu....well done.

Reviewed 03 October 2014 by Stephen
Lunch time crossing. Although given a map could have done with a few signs near Cathedral for access to Ferry. Staff very helpful and competant loading all the cars and lorries - a work of art !!! Good wi-fi areas. Reception staff very clear on directions for cabins (in all languages). Weather was warm and sunny and many people on top decks sunbathing - good facilities. Catering good but not open long enough. Prices extremely reasonable considering a captive audience. Our only down side is that animals are allowed in the lounges and cabins. There are plenty of kennel facilites and should be used by dog owners. We have been crossing for the last 3 years and hopefully will be doing it for much longer.

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.
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.
