I've got the first days news sheet from our trip in July. The Oasis restaurant on deck 7 is open from 12.00 to 14.30 for lunch then 18.30 to 21.30 for dinner. In this restaurant you are allocated a table when you go in which is a nice touch, after which you serve yourself buffet style. There may be short queues at times but they soon clear. The Beachcomber restaurant on deck 11 is true buffet style i.e. you queue up with a tray then try and find a table. Lunch times are 11.00 to 18.30 then it switches to the evening menu which continues until 22.00. The grill at the back of deck 11 serves burgers etc and is open from 11.00 to 20.00. There are also the excellent Oasis and Steakhouse restaurants which you pay extra for and have to be booked in advance although I recall this wasn't necessary for the first night. On the last day you will leave the ship soon after breakfast which starts at 06.00. That should keep you going for a while!!

Assuming you are on a Med cruise from Palma you will also have plenty of time to get into the centre of Palma as the ship is docked at the main terminal just off the sea front where all the luxury boats are moored. Island cruises check in is very well organised and you will soon be on board. It would be a shame just to sit on he ship when you have got Palma in from of you. We had lunch then walked in, about 1.5 miles, and selected the boats we would buy following the big lottery win (!!) but there are plenty of buses going along the main road. Have a nice cruise.
