  • "Direct Ferries Customer Service"

    Journey was perfect. (Menorca-Barcellona) I realized late that if you book with the operator you could save money. Before the departure I contacted the Direct Ferries costumer service, asking informations about the online check in with Baleari, because one code called NDI was missing, than I realized that it was the number of the document added when I booked. The lady of the customer service told that it was not possible to do the check in onlinte because I bought the ticket with them and I was supposed to go directly to the ticket office at the port, but it was enough to insert the id number together with the booking number. I can understand the incompetece but I cannot tolerate negligence. If I had listened to them I would have lost a lot of time for the check in. If they don't know the procedures they should be sorry and hush, and don't give wrong informations. Baleari excellent, Direct Ferries just enough.

  • "rough sea"

    Hello, I would like to write you about my experience. We travelled from Barcellona to Ciutadella with Balearia. Rough sea, we felt sick for 5 hours. The whaves were higher than the ferry, really scary. All the toilets were dirty and full because all the passengers felt sick. fortunately the staff was there always cleaning and helping us. very good staff.

    Well worth the few extra hours driving from Barcelona, this boat arrives in 2.5 hours and is a pleasant way to travel as opposed to the Barcelona-Ibiza route :)

  • "Menorca ferry"

    Travelled as a family of 5 with one 4yr old and one elderly lady with walking difficulties. Ferries departed on time and embarkation at both ports was organised. Disembarkation back at Alcudia in Mallorca was confusing as the notification to return to your cars was not easily audible and the English recoding was cut off.The signage for the correct exit door for the cars was also confusing. in Menorca assistance was provided to transfer the elderly member of the group to the car park area as there is a long walk from the dockside to the car holding area if you don't get in the cars on the ferry for disembarkation. Overall a pleasant way to travel between the Balearic Islands

  • "Balearia Ciutadella to Barcelona"

    Ferry travel is never pleasant with a very seasick husband, a very frightened daughter and two other young children to watch out for. However, the staff on this Balearia ship could not have been more helpful, reassuring and friendly. They made us all feel safe and offered good advice. Thank you to the staff, you were lovely - yes, we did notice despite our above-mentioned problems! We can't comment on the catering as we did not use it. The facility for earphones to hear the tv, if at all possible, would be a bonus, as there was nothing to do for those of us just watching everyone else feeling unwell.

  • "A good way to get to Menorca"

    The boat was great, however, be prepared to queue up for check-in an hour before (no check-in online or machines) which goes veeery slowly and to show your passport at three different controls before getting on the boat. Other than that a convenient and efficient way to get from Mallorca to Menorca.

  • "One Way OK, return uncomfortable - not because of weather "

    Places to ride Barcelona - Alcudia sufficiently available, a lot of noise as just the beginning of school holidays and many happy, sometimes considerably drunken teenagers on the ship. Crossing Palma - Barcelona closely enough seating place, rude staff at the car. small outdoor areas entirely occupied by smokers.

  • "Jaume 1 end Martin i Soler"

    Both ferries were on time. Cabin on Neptuno was quieter than the rest of the ship. Nice chairs in the cabin. Catering was minimal. It was possible to purchase rolls during the outward journey, but on the way back the restaurant was only open for 2 hours and it was very busy. The shop has pretty much sold out all of it's food and drinks.

  • "Boat to Menorca from Alcudia"

    For a two hour trip to Menorca you are provided with all you need. It was well air conditioned inside, comfortable and clean. You could stand outside. The boat was absolutely on time. The boat on the return journey was a ship and was really enjoyable, lots of comfortable seats, sun loungers on deck! My only slight moan is that it takes a while to check in with the paper work, make sure you leave enough time! - Having said that, beats flying any day!

    Ferry crossing aboard the Jaume III. Nice staff and very beautiful boat. A noisy crossing, because of children non being watched by their parents It would good to group all the families with kids in one area of the boat, because it's annoying and tiring.

  • "not good"

    My ferry booking from Alcudia to Barcelona was cancelled, but I was not informed on this. So I turned up at 0630 with no office open. The office opened at 0700 when I was told that I was on the slower 12:30 pm ferry. The result was that I arrive home a day later than planned. Not good service.
