    It was a quiet and safe travel. Food services could be better. Good value for the price.

  • "Overall a reasonable alternative to flying "

    Travelled Barcelona to Palma as foot passengers overnight, with a booked cabin for 4. After checking in at the Estacio Maritima we were directed to queue for a bus as the ship was berthed about 5 km away. No explanation for this was offered. The ship was OK but parts of it were crowded with cabin-less youth groups but the cabin we had was clean and comfortable and larger than expected. We didn't use the catering except for a quick drink at the bar (OK) and coffee in the morning (pretty awful). Apart from the bussing -which we could have done without- the boat was efficient and on time. Overall, a good alternative to flying but the service overall was not as good as ferries we have used on the North Sea and English Channel (DFDS and Brittany Ferries).

  • "Barcelona to palma"

    Would not hesitate to book via direct ferries again. Never had any problems on this or previous trips. Book baleria and be aware that the terminal in Barcelona is "over the bridge" near end of pier and just looks like a random yard. It is better signed now but still not obvious/allow a bit of time. as you are not issued a ticket do not be phased when you have to queue at a portacabin to be issued with your actual ticket. Bit of a wait but looks more of a fuss than is. Don't book a cabin but book a first class seat as is huge and comfortable. Eat paella and booze with the lorry drivers and have fun.

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.
