I took a ferry from Barcelona to Palma on 18/09/2013. Positive aspects: -the ferry left on time, arrived on time anyway. -The price-performance ratio was relatively favourable. - the ferry was equipped with a canteen with food and drink. Negative aspects: -the comfort was uncomfortable because the lounge did not offer any lounging options. - the facilities were not great, too few sockets and no good wifi. - the journey took 7 hours 15 minutes, the flight is much quicker.
