Palma de Mallorca Cruise
Two souls for one city
Sailing the Mediterranean means being able to reach destinations such as the Balearic Islands, which have always been famous for their countless beaches and landscapes. An MSC Mediterranean Cruise will take you to discover Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the Balearic Islands. It's the main centre of the island of Mallorca.
Your MSC Cruise will dock at the port of Palma de Mallorca, and from there you can quickly immerse yourself in the perennial holiday atmosphere. A city of two souls: during the day it offers cultural itineraries and beaches such as that of S'Arenal for a textbook tan, yet at night it provides bars and trendy clubs along the coast.
An MSC Excursion will turn you into experienced speleologists in just one day, taking you to the Dragon Caves. The most famous underground settlement on the island, near Porto Cristo, will welcome you among stalactites and stalagmites in four connected lime-stone caves. A boat trip on Lake Martel, a stretch of water of about 180 meters in the depths of the Earth, a concert on the water, paths and stairs will be the setting of this unusual trip.
The MSC Excursion to the Cathedral of St. Mary of Palma, known as La Seu (The Head-quarters), is an impressive spectacle: 120 m long, 70 m wide and 44 m high with an area of 6600 m2. Its construction, on an ancient mosque, lasted for more than four centuries, from 1229 to 1601, and among its architects is the famous Gaudí. The portals, the rose window and the Trinity Chapel are well worth a visit.
Another MSC Excursion will take you to Sóller, through the "golden valley", an oranges paradise. You will board the historic wagons of a small wooden electric train, once used for transporting citrus fruits, and you will sit on old leather seats, admiring the stunning landscape that flows non-stop. The narrow tracks will lead you over bridges, viaducts and through tunnels of different lengths, leaving you with the pleasant feeling of having experienced a return to the past.
