No matter if you bought the ticket for a particular day and a particular time with Balearia, Acciona, FRS or any other company. When you arrived to Tangier Med, neither schedule nor shipping companies are respected, everybody has to queue in the same single line to wait a ferry to board. Among customs formalities and waiting time took over three hours. After sailing, dock in Algeciras port (which is not the third world) two ferries almost at the same time and disembarked approximately 500 cars with 2,000 people on board, spanish authorities competent (or incompetent?) only habilite to enter the European Union four customs control, so it takes two hours to go through passport control. I do not think it can be organize an operation worst Crossing the Strait in worst way.

good ferry and you can also travel with your car. Maybe the prices are not low, I spent €80 from Palma to Ibiza, but if you can't find a cheap flight, it's a good alternative

I recommend the crossing of the Strait with Balearia. The ferry is very comfortable and with very good amenities and the staff very friendly.

"Great trip to Ibiza"
We live in Andalucía and decided to take a holiday in Ibiza, taking our own vehicle. The whole ferry experience was well managed, from boarding, to the service in the bars and restaurants, to disembarking. The pool bar during the day is a fantastic place to sit and read and have a drink and some freshly-grilled food. If the crossing is in the evening there are lots of places to sit with comfortable allocated seating or tables in the cafes and bars. It beats flying, anyway. We'll be doing it again.

"Journey Dénia - Ibiza July 17, 2014"
Hello, The trip was good, punctual, agreeable. We ate well in the restaurant (though to pay with the card we had to wait to arrive to Ibiza because the machine did not have signal). The port in Dénia was easy to find and the issuance of the tickets was agile. The port in addition is modern and comfortable. The toilets at the end of the trip were unusable. The only difficulty that we had was that our vehicle was completely surrounded with huge trucks and getting there was an frightening experience and (I think) dangerous. We had to walk among enormous trucks that curiously has turned on already their diesel engines before the doors were opened. I think many of them were carrying fresh food and needed it to refrigerate them. Otherwise, I do not understand how it could be possible. Thanks. Greetings, Luis Schroeder

We had a good trip between Mallorca and Ibiza on Balearia. The ship was comfortable and very easy to find, board and be seated. Lots of facilities on board to keep you occupied. Staff were friendly and helpful and the ferry was on time for departure and arrival. Would much rather this than air travel.

"Great way to get from Ibiza to Spain"
This was a very enjoyable trip, the ferry has a small open air pool and bar with music playing, the sun was shining and the vodka and oranges were going down well. The ferry left on time and got to Denia on time. Google earth gives the impression it leaves from same place at Formentera ferry but it does not, so check first or get taxi as I did.

"Boat journey Denia-Ibiza"
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!
