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.

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.
Palma is the capital city of the island of Mallorca, and contains the most historic sights of all the towns on the Balearic Islands. Palma has a population of around 300,000 and many important leaders from the past have left their mark in the city with imposing and impressive buildings, including the wonderfully detailed Le Seu Cathedral. With interesting narrow, clean streets, quiet courtyards, a harbour front and many restored historic buildings, it is always enjoyable to take a leisurely stroll around the city. The tree lined Passeig d'es Born in Palma is a wide avenue and is the city's main promenade. This is one of the beautiful parts of Palma and the Passeig d'es Born forms an axis that dissects the city and features many shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. The monumental city walls of Mallorca 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 invaders. Palma's impressive city walls include a popular walkway, with views over the cathedral and the old town and are well worth a visit.
From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations that include Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
