Palma Barcelona Ferry reviews

  • "good crossing"

    We chose to cross from Palma to Barcelona this time at 23.30 on the 1st of October, normally we use the 12.30 ferry and arrive in Barcelona early evening. we then drive about 100 or so miles into France. This time we got off the ferry at 08.00 and so were able to drive over 400 miles in the daylight and stay overnight in Lyon. The boarding was one of the easiest we have ever done. The staff on the deck pointing us to where we had to park were great and the staff on the elevators and staircases pointing us in the right direction were also great. We got our key for our cabin at reception and then settled down to sleep for the duration of the crossing. All very easy and pleasurable. Thank you

  • "Alternative travel"

    Recently had to change our plans and return to the UK overland. The first part of our journey was by ferry from Palma to Barcelona with Direct Ferries. The whole experience was brilliant. Their website made booking seats easy and the staff both at the port and on the ferry were friendly and helpful. The ferry was comfortable and clean and the time seemed to pass very quickly. Embarkation in Barcelona was smooth and quick.

Palma Guide

The city of Palma is located on the south coast of the Spanish island of Majorca and is the capital city of the Balearic Islands. The city lies on the Bay of Palma and is surrounded to the north and west by a mountain range, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, called the Serra de Tramuntana. The city's history dates back to Roman times when the site of the present day city was an established Roman camp. Over the course of its history, the city has also come under the rule of the Byzantine Empire, the Moors and James I of Aragon.

The city is now very popular with tourists with attractions like La Seu, the city's cathedral. Built on the site of an earlier mosque, construction on the cathedral began in 1229 and was finally completed in 1601. Also in the city is the Parc de la Mer (the Park of the Sea) which is overlooked by the cathedral and is where visitors can relax under a large yellow and blue canopy which provides shade to a row of wooden benches.

Palma Ferry Port is located on the south western side of the city and provides excellent views of the cathedral as ferries depart. The busy port has good connections to major roads leading out of the city. Destinations available from the port include Ibiza, Mahon, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
