  • "Way better than I was expecting!"

    My family and I travelled on the Barcelona - Palma - Barcelona route earlier this month and the whole thing was way better than we expected. The ferries were clean and well maintained. The cabin in particular was spotless and served us really well for the 7 hour crossing. Our only gripe would probably be the speed of service at the catering facilities but for 7 hour journey this is easy enough to remedy by bringing your own snacks etc.

  • "Comfortable way to travel"

    I recommend upgrading to a cabin if you take the overnight - having your own shower, toilet, and bed is well worth the extra $. We were lucky that our 7.5 hour ferry ride during the afternoon was not crowded so we were able to find a "couch" in the cafeteria to claim and nap/relax. However, the seats in the first upgrade option are nice & big, recline back, and look super comfy. The staff was helpful but the food is mediocre so I suggest bringing your own food/snacks. I'd recommend using this company!

  • "Really simple and easy process"

    Booked the ferry to Palma from Barcelona and used TransMediterranean ferries, very easy to book and then all you have to do is arrive and jump aboard! The ship was very nice (that's considering I slept in the canteen). No problems at all, would definitely recommend.

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.
