Maybe should have taken the shuttle bus to town. There is a huge shopping center with nice prices for clothes that we walked to from the ship if that would interest you.

No room to dock, but took tender boat to port for excursion to a 10th century farm for a tour and taste of local food and wine

Palma was a port that was a substitute for Tunisia, which was cancelled because the government of Tunis refused to admit passengers holding Israeli passports. NCL wisely chose not to allow any of their international passengers to be subjected to this bigotry and switched ports. I did a bit of research, and found out about the Palma to Soller Train, which is a cool old train that used to carry oranges. It clickety-clacks through the countryside, up the mountain, THROUGH the mountain stopping at the top for some stunning views. It continues to the seaside village of Soller where we did a bit of exploring on foot. There is a cool Miro and Picasso museum right in the train station (free) and another museum nearby, a tram down to the shore, lots of charming gardens and buildings. This is very easy to do on your own, maybe €20 round trip or less. Take a cab from the port to the train station. The cabbie did not understand English, but did understand, “chugga, chugga, chugga, whooo-whoo!” Can’t wait to do this again! There was a Passion Play there this day, we did not go because we needed time away from crowds. We were nearly alone on the train back from Soller, and the cabbie back to port took us the scenic route and showed us the best of the city.

Love Palma. Went on catamaran round coast and swam in bay - really relaxing.

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!

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

A long walk from the ship, but transport is available, we went on a trip to a vineyard, with a few bottles to taste and small food provided. It was very pleasant, I am sure my glass was never empty until we got back on the bus.

Really beautiful port loads of shops plus nice shopping centre with massive Carrefour supermarket plenty to do loads to see well worth a visit nice restaurants too .😎
Did not know what to expect at this port. Being an island I thought there would be more of an island flavor but its very developed and very clean. We enjoyed our time there. No excursions.
