We did Valencia-Palma and Palma-Valencia in the Abel Matutes with a 15-day difference and everything was good except for the fact that I lost my phone. We tried to contact the Abel Matutes via email since they didn't allow us to call them and nobody did anything. On the way back because it was the same ship we managed to find the phone even though it was not in the lost and found section. I have to say that the service was awful and we had to be without mobile phone for 15 days. Also, I think they should have two café services. One for the truck drivers that collpse the buffet (paid by their companies) and another one for the travellers who just want a cold coke or a coffee.

"Ferry Acciona from Valencia to Palma"

For a long journey like this one (specially if travelling during the night), I highly recommend booking a cabin if you can afford it. I booked only 2 days before the departure so I had to go for the reserved Seat but it’s hard to sleep on it during the night, almost impossible I would say! It was so cold during the crossing as well, which made it even more difficult to sleep well.

Valencia is a medium-sized port city (the third largest city in Spain) and industrial area on the Costa del Azahar in Spain. The city was founded by the Romans in 137 BC on the site of a former Iberian town, by the river Turia. It was originally named Valentia, but centuries of changing pronunciations have since altered the name to its modern form.
The city has been occupied by the Visigoths, Moors and the Aragonese. In 1094, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (El Cid) conquered Valencia (this victory was immortalised in the Lay of the Cid), but the city returned to the Almoravids in 1102. King James I of Aragon reconquered the city in 1238 and incorporated it to the new formed Kingdom of Valencia, one of the kingdoms forming the Crown of Aragon. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Valencia was one of the major cities in the Mediterranean. Valencia was granted Autonomous Statutes in 1982.
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.
