Don't miss this island! Even with an amazing itinerary, it was a highlight! Take the city center bus at the end of the pier. For 15 euro they will drop you off in front of the Cathedral,you can walk blocks to the Arab baths and enter for only 2.50 euro and walk the neighborhoods for amazing tapas and quaint shopping! The roads are very clearly marked. There is an old church Near the baths, Santa Eulalia in which you can climb their very old bell tower and look out at the entire city and Spanish roof tops. Them you enter the basilica. just gorgeous! My husband and boys loved the climb and view. It felt like a hidden gem and I highly recommend it!!!


The ship docks here on a Saturday. Arrange for the shuttle bus and take advantage of the craft market near the drop off point. You'll get unusual and more useful and memorable souvenirs there. After that grab some tapas along the main roads and wander the alleys to find your own memories.

Really surprised by how beautiful Palma was. Lovely place, so much to do and see. Also really easy to get around so you don't need to do an excursion.

This oddly was the port I planned to skip because I did not want to see some pearl factory that made fake pearls. Well-the staff explained it is one of the few cities where you get off the boat you ARE IN THE CITY and so I walked off the boat and into the city and had such a blast I did not want to go back to the ship. Many high quality garments for almost nothing in Euros. Here is where I bought real pearls for little and lots of clothes for very little Tons of children's clothes also-so I was able to hook up my grand kids.

We really enjoyed Mallorca. We did not do an excursion, and we had tons of fun on our own. The ship offered a shuttle from the port to town (15 euro p/p). From there, we walked all around and there was so much to see and do. It is a wonderful stop. We had some delicious treats, good shopping, fun outdoor entertainment, and enjoyed the outdoor vendors. Palma is a perfect cruise ship stop!

They let us into this port late which sucks because we lost a good amount of time to explore. We did not take a tour instead we opted to walk along the bay down the old city into the squares and around the major sites. It was manageable but cut it close to all aboard time. Too much to take in by foot in the allotted time slot.

We did the Hop On Hop Off bus. One of our stops was a beach. We really enjoyed the combination of beach and sightseeing.
