  • "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

  • "barcelona > Ibiza > Barcalona"

    The entrance to the ferry port in Barcelona was not easy to find. A small entrance with a flag made things even more unclear. We drove by three times which was odd as I travel quite regularly with many ferries from here. Outward trip was fine. Food and drinks are not too expensive. Cabin as well, as you would expect. Return trip; again, we had to search for the port Entrance. The signs in the several languages arent very clear. Furthermore, 1 port in Eivissa is run by 2 operators. The offices are not clearly separated. There was a storm on the way back and my wife lay asleep, miserable like a tamed bird in a cage because was sea sick but she got better when we arrived at the port. This ferry was better than the others, so, recommended.

  • "Reserved seats"

    Nothing to say about the reserved seats. Only thing (and also the most important) is that seats are located close to the doors to go outside on the deck. All night people came and go through. Plus the doors are relly noisy. Next time I will go for a cabin.

  • "Very pleasant"

    The chairs were comfortable. It would be amazing if they could recline but I can't complain. The television was turned off when it was time to sleep and the attendant came by regularly to check up on everyone. I would travel with this company again.

  • "Barcelona - Palma de Mallorca - Barcelona"

    In terms of the ship and staff it was all good. Very professional. The only thing that may be slightly unusual for UK users is the concept of checking in outside the port at the Trasmediterranea office before you enter the port proper. It wasn't a problem once we'd sussed it out but a new one on me at any rate. Coming back from Palma was the same with the added spice of the departure being from the Commercial dock at the other end of the port to the regular passenger dock. This was explained at check in (at the passenger dock) but it did mean another trip back through Palma to the Commercial dock that I'd ridden past 20 mins before. Also the signage for dock entrances in Palma is non-existant especially round the left-hand slip road you need to take to do the right turn into the passenger dock. Non of that is Trasmediterraea's fault tho.

    The journey to Melilla was very good. There were no big waves so the ship didn't move that much. It arrived on time to Melilla. The return was as good but during the night. The arrival in Malaga was also punctual.

  • "A good team"

    I was very satisfied with the boat and with the crew. However, it's a pity that we have to queue in the same line than people buying the tickets on the same ticket. Purchasing the ticket on your website is very quick, but it takes 2h30 to have get the physical ticket. I won't even mention the fatigue, the heat and the cries. Everyone is pushing and you worry about the children who are alone in the car while you get your boarding passes. Please open a ticket office for the people who have already booked their tickets. Thanks.
