Barcelona Palma Ferry reviews

  • "Good company"

    Having travelled on both companies, the Neptune class is the most comfortable way to go. The food however is a bit limited unless you want to go for the full traditional Spanish meal. Many people take a picnic on board which is probably the best option. The bus to / from the terminal is painless.

  • "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.

  • "Great service friendly staff "

    Good service only two issues to point out. 1. It would have helped to have had clear instructions on where to check in on the Barcelona as well as the Palma side. 2. Toilet cubicals on the rear deck were really smelly making it quite unpleasant to get some fresh air on the entire deck if there was an aft wind.

  • "Excellent experience with Transmed"

    We had an excellent journey from Barcelona to Palma. We arrived at Barcelona, checked in and were boarded immediately. We had a very tasty and wecome meal before retiring to our cabin. We had driven from the north of England practically non stop so we were desperate for a good nights sleep. Our beds were very comfortable and before we knew it we were arriving in Palma refreshed and ready to take on the day. Definitely the way to travel!!!!

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.

Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.

Palma Guide

The city of Palma is the capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca and contains the most sites of historical interest of any town located in the Balearic Islands. With a population of roughly 300,000 Palma's past leaders have left their mark on the city with its impressive buildings which includes the beautiful Le Seu Cathedral. The city is characterised by narrow streets, secluded courtyards, a harbour and some fine examples of restored historic buildings and all combine to make the city a wonderful place to explore on foot. The wide avenue that is Passeig d'es Born is the city's main promenade and apart from dissecting the city, this tree lined street contains many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The city's walls were constructed on the site of medieval walls and featured galleries that ran along the top, where the strong defence could protect the island from marauders. The walls include a walkway that is popular with both locals and visitors and is where lovely views over the cathedral and old town can be had.

From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations that include Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
