Denia to Ibiza with Balearia
The process of bringing the prepaid ticket to Baleria Office to issue the boarding pass is poor. The signage in Denia was unhelpful, very little signage and we arrived 1 hour before departure to find a long queue of passengers collecting boarding passes and anxious drivers worried the ferry would leave without them. Given the cost of these ferries I would expect better services.
Barcellona to Palma with Balearia
Despite an upgrade (as they changed the ship from when we originally checked in) the facilities were poor, disembarkation very hard to find, the ship arrived at the destination one and a half hours late..no apology. Cost a fortune. But if you want to travel with a car the competition are just as bad value..so no better option.
Denia to Palma with Balearia
Very easy to take your dog. You personally choose which cage you want them in. You can stay with them and walk them round the deck until the ferry sails. You can also get them out for exercise on deck whenever the ferry stops at a port. Although the cages are in the fresh air....they are protected from sun and rain.
