Barcelona Palma Ferry reviews

  • "Good Trip"

    Enjoyable trip easy to use. Not a cruise but good facilities for a ferry.

  • "Good overall experience "

    Good overall experience onboard Rosalind Franklin between Barcelona and Palma and back. Very friendly and competent staff members. However the food at the self service restaurant was cold and not very tasty. Both in Palma and back in Barcelona it took over an hour to disembark with my car, as over 100 trucks had to drive out first. I understand that moving trucks takes time, it would therefore be more convenient to organise for the few private cars to board last to be the first ones out.

  • "Excellent trip"

    There were very few cars and trucks on the ferry making for a quick entrance and exit. The seas were calm and we were off the ferry in Palma an hour earlier than expected. The ferry was well maintained and the food not too bad.

  • "A different experience"

    I was glad to see when I arrived onboard the changes that had taken place to the vessel, most impressive being the new eating area and I treated myself to a fillet steak etc in the waiter assisted area. I have always travelled with Balearic as I loved to settle back in the incredibly comfortable recliners that have now sadly been replaced by new, semi reclining and very hard seats that gave me a very uncomfortable night compared to the previous Neptune seating.

Barcelona Guide

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 Guide

The city of Palma is the capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca and contains the most sites of historical interest of any town located in the Balearic Islands. With a population of roughly 300,000 Palma's past leaders have left their mark on the city with its impressive buildings which includes the beautiful Le Seu Cathedral. The city is characterised by narrow streets, secluded courtyards, a harbour and some fine examples of restored historic buildings and all combine to make the city a wonderful place to explore on foot. The wide avenue that is Passeig d'es Born is the city's main promenade and apart from dissecting the city, this tree lined street contains many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The city's walls 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 marauders. The walls include a walkway that is popular with both locals and visitors and is where lovely views over the cathedral and old town can be had.

From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations that include Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
