The boarding of the cars is very quick. The crossing is perfect. We didn't try the food.

We indeed went to Ibiza and back on the Alhucemas. Firstly: our experience with DirectFerries was fine! The ship was old but our stay on board was fine. Our only remark is that the slow boat takes 3.5 hours, whereas the fast boat onbly takes 2. Arrival and departure times are correct. It's possible to have a meal and use WiFi (extra charge) aboard. Boarding and disembarking takes some time. The complete experience, also to Mallorca on a fast boat before, is fine!

We were unable to go to Ibiza due to a death. During a phone call with Directferries we were told that they couldn't do anything for us. If only they had offered a small compensation. I think this is very bad and will never book with this company again.

Denia is in the province of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca halfway between Alicante and Valencia in eastern Spain. The origins of the town date back to the founding of a Greek colony called Hemeroskopeion. The urbanisation of the town started in the 3rd Century B.C. when Dianium was founded by the Romans. A key factor at this time was the port from which all the produce destined for the Urbe was exported. Throughout the 18th century an important recuperation took place which continued into the following century. It is after the last third of that century when the monocultivation of the raisin acted as the driving force for a great expansion which brought about the construction of important infrastructure such as the railway lines and factories. The almost exclusively rural community remained unaltered until the beginning of the sixties, when a great development of the tourist industry took place.
Ibiza Town is a municipality of Spain. It is located on the southeast coast of the island of Ibiza (Eivissa) in the Balearic Islands autonomous community. The city, which has a population of 37,408 (2002), is the capital and most populous settlement of the island and of the Illes Pitiüses group (which includes Ibiza and Formentera). It is widely known for its extravagant nightlife, with its discotheques attracting visitors from all over the world. A Phoenician-Punic settlement during ancient times, Ibiza contains within its Renaissance walls an interesting legacy from all the different cultures that populated it. This artistic wealth is found in the monumental area of Dalt Vila, in the necropolis of Es Puig des Molins and in the archaeological site of Sa Caleta. The beauty of the island capital is enhanced by the sands and coves at Figueretes, Es Viver and Talamanca, as well as by its the diverse marine ecosystem.
