It was a good and clean ship. We was 2 persons and got 4 person berth cabin. Not so big but clean! It was a lot more clean than the Grand Navi Veloci lines suit we used day before to come from Genova to Barcelona!

The Wharf in Barcelona is located at the far end of the harbor. There is no way to safely stop the car and look at Barcelona. Until one is in the center of Barcelona, take's ages. The seating inside the ferry (we had no cabin ) let the desire for a 2nd class seat of the German Federal Railroad pay ...... The signs of the correct approach to ports in Palma is like a scavenger hunt. The fact that the port staff speak almost exclusively Spanish, makes it not necessarily easier.

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia in northeast Spain. The first human settlements date back to Neolithic times. However, the city proper was founded by the Romans who established a colony there at the end of the 1st century BC. The ancient Roman city of Barcino had a population of about a 1000 and was bounded by a defensive wall, the remains of which can still be seen in the old town. From the 15th to 18th centuries the city entered a period of decline. Over these centuries, Barcelona struggled to maintain its economic and political independence. This struggle ended in 1714, when the city fell to the Bourbon troops and rights and privileges in Catalonia were suppressed. In the mid-19th century, an industrial revolution took place in the region, and textile manufacturing became a key industry. At the beginning of the 20th century, Barcelona embarked on a process of widespread urban renewal and built the Eixample district.
Palma de Mallorca is the major city and port in the island of Majorca and capital city of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands in Spain. It is situated on the south coast of the island on the Bay of Palma.
In 1983 Palma became the capital of one of Spain's newly established autonomous regions, the Balearic Islands, and since then it's shed the dusty provincialism of yesteryear, developing into a go-ahead and cosmopolitan commercial. The new self-confidence is plain to see in the city centre, a vibrant and urbane place which is akin to the big cities of the Spanish mainland - and a world away from the heaving tourist enclaves of the surrounding bay.
The origins of the city can be traced back to before Roman times, and even today inhabitants of homes in the old quarter are often still discovering Roman remains less than a metre beneath the ground.
