Incorporated into the Trasmediterranea fleet in 2011 to boost the traffic between mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands, the Tenacia ferry is one of the most modern ferries operating in the Mediterranean. The Vessel allows up to 869 passengers a time to enjoy a pleasant and comfortable crossing, with more than enough facilities to keep all entertained throughout.
It can also carry 195 vehicles on each crossing and reaches speeds of 24 knots. This 200 metre long ship has plenty of facilities to help while away the hours, from sun loungers out on deck, to relaxing bar and restaurant areas. A range of comfortable cabins are on offer and there is even a kennel section on board if you’re travelling with pets.
Tenacia has a variety of cabins on offer, with accommodation to suit whoever maybe travelling. It ranges from four berth cabins for passengers travelling in larger groups to single cabins for those making the trip alone. For those who prefer not to book a cabin there are plenty of reclining seats available around the ship.
There are a number of options for your culinary needs on the Tenacia. The bar restaurant offers everything from light cold snacks to hot main meals. For even more choice on main meals there is another Dining Room and the Strike Bar allows you to relax with a drink in comfortable surroundings.
Duty free shopping is available for all passengers so you can take advantage of lower than high street prices. With jewellery and perfumes on offer, it’s the perfect place to treat yourself or buy holiday gifts. A large choice of magazines, books, puzzles and confectionery are on offer too.
You can chill with stunning Mediterranean views and bask in the sunshine on the sun decking area or while away the hours having a drink in the outdoor seating. If you are travelling with pets, there is also an outdoor kennel where they can stay and be looked after, whilst you enjoy the fantastic services on board.

Enjoyable trip easy to use. Not a cruise but good facilities for a ferry.

"Palma to Barcelona Ferry"
Nice sailing on November cold and windy day. Nice oversized terminal, well directed to deck with plenty of room for passengers. Surprised by lunch at 1 PM included. According to truck drivers on board, trip was about 1.5 hrs shorter but we waited before the pier. Strong advise to have taxi phone # , it is remote part of port and no transportation from terminal. Taxis are passing by on near express way and can't make to terminal due to blocked access by trucks in line for enbarcment.

"Palma - Barcelona"
Loading and boarding went really well in both directions. The seating was comfortable enough but the food was crap. We travel with a dog and the facilities for this are just great. A purpose made kennel block on the helicopter deck which you have access to at all times. The helicopter deck makes a good exercise area and if the sun is shining then its a good place to spend the journey. Really pleased with our experience but will take a picnic next time.

"Barcelona to Palma Return With Car"
As expected really we had a cabin on the way out 11pm sailing. Comfy chairs on the way back. We booked early in 2018 £600.00 +. Only to be offered the same crossing via e-mail for around £300.00 a few weeks before we left. We couldn't cancel and re-book. Which left a bitter taste in the mouth and wallet. So if your willing to wait till the last minute, that is what we will do next time. The boat was comfy enough and service/food good. Only word of warning is if you are put on the lower deck its around an eight storey climb to the lounge/cabin decks. no lifts.

The boarding was very efficient and the place to queue was easy to find The trip there was very comfortable on the reclining seats and got quite a lot of sleep The return joourney was not as good having been attacked by another passenger who used two hands to push me in the back over a chair which resulted in a cut eye and being on warafarin bled quite profusely also it was difficult to find where to board but generally the crossings were fine

"Barcelona - Palma de Mallorca and return"
I made the trip in my camper, very pleased with the service and price. I would recommend taking a cabin if traveling overnight, it is worth the extra cost. Finding the departure point in Palma is confusing the first time, having to go round the one way system at the port when you could drive straight to the loading area.

The crossing was punctual, the staff were friendly, the food was good and our cabin was clean. What more could I ask for? My only complaint (which is obviously nothing to do with the ferry company) is the total lack of signposts to the ferry terminal once your within about a mile of its location. This is a problem both in Palma and Barcelona - where it almost caused us to miss the boat.

"Way better than I was expecting!"
My family and I travelled on the Barcelona - Palma - Barcelona route earlier this month and the whole thing was way better than we expected. The ferries were clean and well maintained. The cabin in particular was spotless and served us really well for the 7 hour crossing. Our only gripe would probably be the speed of service at the catering facilities but for 7 hour journey this is easy enough to remedy by bringing your own snacks etc.

"Really simple and easy process"
Booked the ferry to Palma from Barcelona and used TransMediterranean ferries, very easy to book and then all you have to do is arrive and jump aboard! The ship was very nice (that's considering I slept in the canteen). No problems at all, would definitely recommend.

Reviewed by Nick Burton who travelled with Trasmediterranea on Tenacia
Negative: the car transport was not good, we got space in garage A, which is the lowest deck. The cars could barely fit and I didn't get time to grad what I needed from the car. I couldn't do it while the others parked either because the cars were so close to each other that it wasn't possible to open the doors. Not to mention the staff member who was responsible, the did not seem to be able to speak, his was of communicating was through a whistle! So unpleasant! It was not enough space to drive up and down and to turn (parked trucks in the way). It wasn't adapted for disabled or older people as the only exit had stairs. Positive: nice staff and good and plenty of food
