  • "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.

  • "Agp-min-agp journey "

    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.

    The crossing was pleasant. The boat was clean and confortable. I regret however the inefficiency of the Marocan custom officers. You have to wait for half an hour. The parking at the port is located outiside and in the sun unfortunately.

  • "Melilla was missing!"

    It is worth going to Melilla. I think it's been a while since I travelled in such a nice ship. From the seats to the bars and shops were all harmony. The staff were also very nice and always smiling. I am 70 years and the weekend was great. In Melilla everything went well but the journey in the ship was a total cruise. I recommend all Spaniards to use this service and visit Melilla. It is rwally worth it. Thanks everybody for this wonderful weekend.
