ROSEBASKETS - Answered a Question by Reed (02 Sep 08 17:35)

If you get a taxi to the port ask for "Paeso Maritimo", you'll drive along the marina road. Once you see the ship you're on point it out ton the driver and they'll take you to the correct port entrance. In Palma there are two different ports. The Thomson ships usually use the dock nearer to the Centre of Palma. The larger ships dock in the "old" port as it has deeper water and is further out of town. Hope this helps.

It goes from Pier 4 at Estacion Maritima not Paeso Maritima as far as I am aware which is the same one as used by Island Cruises - Paeso is the promenade - you will see the ship though from the paeso.

Read it before criticising it! I said point out the ship from the Paeso Maritimo. If you ask a taxi driver to take you to the Estacion Maritima, he'll probably take you to the old port first!

Read it before criticising - I was making it clearer to someone asking a question. To walk from the Paeso to the ship is about 600 yards due to the road layout even though it only looks a short distance as the crow flies. THe old port is Porto Pi not Estacion Maritima - so the taxi would not do as you suggest.If we want to be pedantic it is at Club De Mar Muelles de Poniente Estacion Maritima Pier 4. The taxi will know it as Estacion Maritima.

I beg your pardon, you must be a very seasoned traveller.

If you have enough time to spare [40minutes] jump on the no. 1 but [less than 2 euro and a tour of the centre of Palma included!] The last stop drops you directly outside the terminal for the Destiny.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
