  • "Mostly good "

    We travelled by day from Barcelona to Palma, and we were the only foot passengers on the ferry. There were maybe 30 truck drivers and tourists with cars on the whole ship so it felt rather strange, like a ghost ship. The journey was shorter than scheduled so we arrived in Palma a good hour and a half earlier than anticipated. But the bus that took us off the ferry only gave us an option of drop-off at the Cathedral or at the ferry port the other end of town. Our hotel was inbetween the two, so we had a very long walk. Coming back we went overnight. The cabin was OK. The main annoyance was that the Trasmediterranea check-in desk is so far away from the city centre. We went there in the afternoon to check in while we still had a hire car but it was closed. So in the evening after we had dropped off our hire car, we had to drag our suitcase the entire length of the marine drive which took nearly an hour. We waited an hour after checking in for a bus to arrive, then all the foot passengers had to sit on the bus with the engine running for a full half hour for no apparent reason before it took us all the way back to where we’d come from, near the Cathedral area. Why can’t they have a check-in desk near to where the ferry actually sails from? The ferry itself was fine. It looked like a good restaurant although we didn’t eat on board, and there’s a bar and a swimming pool. The seats all seem to be deliberately designed to be too uncomfortable to sleep in, so if you want to sleep you’ll have to get a cabin.
