"FERRY TO ALCUDIA"
All good, except the loading at Barcelona, which was slow and chaotic, and at Alcudia on the way back, which was slow.

"A great way to travel"
We travelled overnight to Alcudia and had a cabin. The return was during the afternoon and we were very comfortable and enjoyed a good meal. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. The early call at 04:30 was not good, but necessary. Staff were helpful and friendly and the service was punctual. Definitely better than travelling by air.

"Felt like personal service"
We were handled very nicely and quickly in a very confusing atmosphere which made it very useable. All personnel were very helpful and accommodating. Thank you

"Very good service but be careful"
Lovely, efficient crossing, but on exiting the port at Barcelona, we had our tyre slashed and were robbed when we pulled into repair it. We made a police statement and apparently gangs on small motorbikes are targeting foreign number plates, when you get to traffic lights they have spikes on their shoes, slash your tyre and then alert their colleagues further up the road! Ferry service was excellent but this has put us off using this crossing again.

"A nervous sailor."
The experience of travelling with Balearia as opposed to Iscomar between Cuitadellaa and Alcudia is so much better. We had quite a rough crossing on our return journey, the ferries hadn't run the day before, but I dread to think what the Iscomar would have been like. All in all a very pleasant experience .

"Excellent overnight sail."
We travelled as foot passengers on the overnight ferry between Barcelona to Ibiza on Wednesday 10th September. Everything from check in at the port to service, help and cabin allocation on board was very efficient.Our cabin was clean and comfortable. We didn't eat on board but did use the bar and found prices very reasonable.

"Fly versus float"
We were going to fly from Ibiza to Barcelona, however, we decided to save a 500 euros and take the ferry. Turned out to be a great decision. Although it took longer than a flight would have it was a great experience and was a lot of fun. I would choose the same method again.

"very good crossing"
A few days ago we travelled on the Balearia Ferry. We were accommodated in the Neptune class and we were amazed by the quality of the seats. They are great, very comfortable. At the return we booked a cabin and we also were surprised that the cabin was spacious and immaculately clean. We were very pleased.

The ferry was good and there is nothing wrong in general. The only thing was that on the outbound we had to book lobby bar, because there were not other accommodation available and during the night the seats are very uncomfortable to sleep. On the return, we booked seats in the Neptuno Lounge and it was marvelous. These seats are comfortable, spacious reclinable almost completely ... Amenities in general (cafeteria, restaurant, ...) good although there were few staff and the waiting time to be served was long.

"Crossing Alcudia - Barcelona"
The staff is friendly and the ferry departs and arrives on time, with some delays when leaving the ship. I recommend you that you book Neptune seats as they are very comfortable and will make the journey more enjoyable.

The trip went well. Especially the return which was very quick. Good service. Only, the burger on deck wasn’t tasty. It should have been left a little longer on the grill.

"Annual trip to mallorca"
For the first time we booked to travel to Alcudia rather than to Palma from Barcelona for two reasons, the price and the journey time (6.5 hrs instead of 8 hrs) The ferry (Martin I Soler) had a lot more to offer than the other ferries we have travelled on. The outward journey was over night and we only booked a serena seat but a Neptune seat would have been a lot more comfortable, the return journey was during the afternoon. We would certainly recommend this ferry and journey. Our only comment is we dont understand why only the driver is allowed to travel on board with the car.
