"Unfortunately had a lot of stress "
The approach to the harbor was pure stress! Since we do not speak the Spanish, we had a lot of trouble, first the port and then find the ferry. Only with the help of a taxi driver we finally found the way to the ferry. Though we arrived " 5 minutes before departure ", we were checked-in friendly and we even arrived to our crossing to Tenerife. We were surprised that so few passengers were on the ship and so it was a quiet crossing. The ferry arrived on time in Tenerife and we were satisfied with the outward journey. On the way back we were at the indicated boarding time (22:00 clock) in the harbor. The ferry was due to sail at 23:30 clock. Shortly before 24:00 clock we were still waiting, we were finally able to board the ferry and into our cabin. We had a totally overtired 5-year-old child there. No one thought it necessary to inform us of the reason of such delay. The cabin was clean and the beds comfortable. The next morning we wanted to go at 7:30 clock for breakfast and inquired at the front desk in English, when the ferry arrives in Las Palmas. In response, we were told, at 14:00 clock (according to timetable at 8:30 clock). As our first anger was gone, we decided to have breakfast in peace . Suddenly, one of the staff came and told us frantically anything in Spanish. Our questions in English came back only explanations in Spanish. It was not until another guest then explained to us in English that we were already in Las Palmas. Then of course everything had to go quickly and we could not have breakfast at an end. I do not know if we expect too much if we say that but the staff on the ship if not German, but then at least should speak English. A Spanish course for maybe 2 weeks of leave within a few years is worth it really. All in all, remains to us by the crossing by ferry, of course, forever in my memory, but I would recommend it for Spanish speaking tourists anyway.

Las Palmas, officially named Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is a city and capital on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria in the Canary islands. The city is roughly 150 km from the African coast and is located in the north east part of Gran Canaria. The city's climate, warm, dry summers and winters that aren't too cold, make it a popular destination for tourists.
The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejon and has many things to see and do including a selection of theatre, cinema, opera, music concerts, museums and galleries to enjoy. Two of the most popular cultural events held in the city are the Canary Island Music Festival and the International Film Festival. The most important historical buildings in the city can be found in the Vegueta part of the city where some of the buildings have been standing for 500 years. These include the Chapel of San Antonio Abad, the Plaza de Santa Ana which is bordered by the Casas Consistoriales, the Casa Regental, the Obispado and Santa Ana Cathedral.
Las Palmas is the main ferry port on the island. As the island is in the middle of the archipelago, Las Palmas ferry port provides connections to several islands (Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, Tenerife) and also the south of Spain (Huelva and Cadiz).
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a port city located on the Spanish island of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. The city has an important port and is filled with wide streets, beautiful landscaped areas and some fine examples of modern architecture. The city can trace its back around 400 years when the city began to develop in the late 16th century aided by its port which enabled to city to become the second most populated city in the Canary Islands. The centre of the city sits on the site of the former fortress of San Cristobal and is looked over by the monument dedicated to the Triumph of Candelaria, which is a neoclassical sculpture in Carrara marble and was created by the Italian Pasquale Bocciardo. This part of the city is also overlooked by the 18th century Baroque facade of the La Carta Palace. In the centre of the city, near the sea, several of the busiest streets and squares of the capital meet, such as the Plaza de la Candelaria.
From the city's port there are ferry services departing to mainland Spain and to the other Canary Islands.
