"A great journey"
This is a great way to get to La Palma. Three days at sea, spending my days chilling out on the sunny deck with a coffee, was awesome.

"Crossing Cadiz to Tenerife"
I travelled from Cadiz to Tenerife on the 25th of November 2014 The crossing was great, the ferry was basic but very comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly. The cabin was good nice and clean and warm. The food was excellent I have had worse in a 4 star hotel. Thank you very much I will use you again and I will also recommend you to others.

No water in the pool, the roof over the pool wasn't open so we couldn't enjoy the sun. The food that was included in the price was bland. Nothing to do on the ferry, would've been nice with a trobadour for example. The trip was a transport distance more than anything else.

"Never again Trasmediteranea with dog "
The accommodation on the ship Albayzin for the dogs (called the dog pound) is located on parking level 4 access is via a fairly steep iron stairs, no elevator. The boxes (cages) are indeed spacious, but are in addition to the transport trucks, which require power and next to the trash cans It's noisy and stinks There regulated visiting hours about 5 times a day you can under no circumstances stay the whole day with his dog and now the most important:..... with heavy seas is not a visit to the dogs possible! which means in my case 30 hours without walking the dog! And without the dog to see. impossible states. There are surveillance cameras everywhere and the doors are locked! A creep into the cabin is not possible. The supervision of the dogs is similar to that of felons. And times should not be led astray, even small dogs up to 6kg in own transport boxes may not in the cabin nor to any other public space. these dogs need at night in the cages. If you want to leave the dog in the car (RV), you have to sign anything that you do it at your own risk. Is only recommended on Deck 5, Deck 4, and since the others can be in heavy seas enter under any circumstances. And lastly, it is not recommended to leave his car put next to the overloaded, stappled vans of Moroccans, poses a huge security risk in heavy seas. On my crossing, some of these cars have come into spin and even upset, one with the load against my camper.

"First time venture from Valencia to Mahon"
The ferry service was both prompt and efficient in terms of time and of personnel. Although there were few instructions at the terminal in Valencia or on the website to help inexperienced ferry travellers, this was my first experience of a Mediterranean ferry, staff were available to help in security and also at the bar. It was really good to have a bar service available even though we arrived at the terminal some six hours ahead of time! The weather on the day did not encourage us to venture further into Valencia on the day. Loading was very efficient and ahead of leaving by a good margin. The top deck for the Mahon cars was a bit hairy to reach but well staffed. The food service was adequate and the set menu okay but not inspiring . The bar staff were very friendly and helpful. Cabins were fine. Comfortable and available throughout the journey which was appreciated. We slept very well on the first leg and only awoke to the announcements in Palma. The next leg was a little choppy so the cabin was good to relax in. We had a bit of a free for all disembarking at Mahon and I think more guidance could be given to a distinct order for the rows of cars reversing to leave the top deck. Once off we left very quickly and the local police were very much in attendance and helpfu Would not hesitate however in using the ferry service again.
