"Mallorca 2014 "
Reviewed 29 April 2014 by Veronica
Overall good if you are a person that likes to watch the sea and you are not in a rush. The seats are not the most comfortable option if you are spending the night. The ships stable and comfortable but they should extent the bar opening times or at least have some more entertainment options. Attention and service from staff was excellent.

Valencia is a city and capital of the Valencia region in Spain and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. It is the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. The city lies on the banks of the Turia River on the eastern coast of the Iberian peninsular, on the Gulf of Valencia. The Albufera, a freshwater lagoon and estuary about 11 km to the south of the city, is one of the largest lakes in Spain and it forms the main portion of the Parc Natural de l'Albufera (Albufera Nature Reserve).
Valencia is known internationally for the Falles (Las Fallas), a local festival held in March, and for paella valenciana, traditional Valencian ceramics, intricate traditional dress, and the architecture of the City of Arts and Sciences designed by Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela. The ancient winding streets of the Barrio del Carmen contain buildings dating to Roman and Arabic times. The Cathedral, built between the 13th and 15th centuries, is primarily of Gothic style but contains elements of Baroque and Romanesque architecture. Beside the Cathedral is the Gothic Basilica of the Virgin (Basílica De La Virgen De Los Desamparados). UNESCO has recognised the Silk Exchange market (La Llotja de la Seda), erected in early Valencian Gothic style, as a World Heritage Site.
The Port of Valencia has regular passenger services to and from the Balearic Islands and Italy, along with a growing number of visiting cruise ships.
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.
