  • "End of September travel"

    I paid for recliner seats...a number of them didn’t work. I would recommend fixing or indicate with signage they are broken. Two of the ladies washroom facilities were out of order. Staff were courteous.i didn’t eat on board but was happy to see there were vegan and vegetarian options.

  • "Excellent "

    Really good trip. We were travelling with two bike boxes but the staff were excellent and helped us board and disembark easily. Food was good and great value for money. Definitely recommend it between Alcúdia and Barcelona. We booked a seat in the Neptune lounge which was so comfortable and spacious. Well worth the cost.

  • "Ferry trip Barcelona to alcudia"

    Lovely smooth sailing for the night ferry, nice and comfortable first class leather seating. Unfortunately only one sailing a day that takes 6 hours at night arriving at 4 am, and the restaurant below , is not separated from the first class sleeping seats, so noise can be heard from restaurant and adults with children should have a separate area, as we had babies crying incessantly throughout the journey.

  • "just another ferry"

    Departed early and arrived early. Odd requirement for car passengers to board separately with the foot passengers, and undergo a bag search yet drivers were not searched. Most ferries don't do this. Good choice of catering on board, not expensive. We did book for the Neptune class up front but preferred the regular seats as it was quieter - but only a few of these have nearby power sockets. I expect we benefited from the relatively low number of fellow travellers mid week, early May. The public announcements were not audible from cabins, in fast Spanish with barely distinguishable and briefer English versions, but seasoned ferry goers will have no problem working out what's going on. The Balearia disembarkment point in Barcelona does involve a rather slow process as there are traffic lights seemingly nearly always at red on the feeding road to the main Avenue, so factor this in. Grimaldi lines doesn't have this hurdle.

  • "Winter trip"

    Travelled over on the 25th from Barcelona to Ciutadella. The journey was good and 1st class seats comfortable enough to sleep in. Food and drinks reasonably priced. Only downfall was I was unaware that the ferry went via Alcudia, announcements wake you up when trying to sleep.

  • "A very satisfacory and comfortable ferry crossing."

    A large and well equipped ferry, giving a very smooth crossing. Staff were helpful. It would be better if actual seats were allocated when you checked in. There was some confusion as to which seats were taken, and which seats weren't. There should be additional/better dinning facilities than just the self service cafeteria, which was only open for 2 hours during a 9.5 hour crossing (there was a bar with snacks open for the whole crossing).

  • "A relaxing way to travel "

    We enjoyed a relaxing day traveling from Cuitadella to Bacelona. We could have chosen the fly but that would have meant catching buses to and from the airports by taking the ferry we were able to walk. Our seats were large and comfortable and we were able to chose from various areas in which to sit incluing a movie area. We spent a fair part of the journey on deck relaxing on sun lounges. The only thing that marred the trip for me was we didn't realise when the cafeteria was closing and just misssed out on buying food from there. We were able to buy food from the bar at the reat of the ferry but as l am gluten intoletant they were not real options for me. It would be better if there had a packaged salad or fruit available. I would travel wiyh direct ferries again and recomend it as a wonderful experience.
