We took a taxi to a beach that was about 15 minutes from port. It was quite hot and the water was perfect. We enjoyed the day. Like most european beaches, it is topless optional, so if this is uncomfortable for you, then you might want to consider a tour of some kind.

Enjoyable experience. Things are a bit spread out in the city so transportation could be an issue. The ship provided a shuttle from the port to a central drop off location that was near the renowned Cathedral. Immediately around the Cathedral are restaurants, ATM machines for obtaining Euro currency (ship did not have the means to exchange currency) and a wide range of shopping opportunities. We chose to use the Hop-On/Off bus that we have used in other cities. Not a great many sites along the route. We did stop at the Belver Castle and enjoyed a self-guided tour (fee paid for the bus included the entrance fee). We intended to tour the Cathedral when we returned to where we started the bus tour but my wife was not feeling well so we took the shuttle back to the ship. We had thought about taking a tour to the Caves of Drach - distance is about 20 miles from the port, but the tour would have taken all day and involved a lengthy bus trip. We did not hear from anyone who did take this tour but it is said that the caves our spectacular. There is a smaller cave not far from the port in Genova - we had anticipated going to this cave but chose not to because of the cost of the taxi and how we were felling. We look forward to going back to this location as the island looked to be a wonderful place to visit.

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.

OK. If we did a repeat cruise on this itinerary, I would opt to stay on the ship next time. It's not that it's a bad place just what it has to offer we can do at home for the most part

Beautiful island with many, many swanky yachts. It was nice to stroll along the marina looking at all the boats. Old town was really nice, but there were huge line-ups to go into the cathedral, so we passed. We also did a hop on hop off here.

No excursions here but lots of opportunities for pictures. We had planned to do the hop on hop off bus but never did. I was told that's the best way to see Palma.

We did the bicycle tour and absolutely loved it! We rode along the coastline and then into old town. Felt like we got to see local places that no other tourists had access to.
Want to go back - extremely nice & fantastic peope

I did a beach excursion. After being bused through the city, I had time to eat great tapas, shop, and spend the rest of the time at the beach. I liked that I was able to choose the restaurant and stores, rather than be provided select food/local wares on the beach. I didn’t see much of the city, besides what we drove by. Maybe would opt to do that next time.
