One last port of call in Palma

We made one final stop in Palma on the quiet Spanish island or Mallorca. It’s a favorite destination for Europeans.

You can see why: Its breathtaking cliffs (mind the dropoff, Erysee!) and historical medieval towns make this the perfect place to conclude our Western Mediterranean cruise.

The boys had a great time, not just exploring Spain and Italy, but also getting up close with all the Nickelodeon characters on this special, “all access” cruise.

On our final night, we experienced Blue Man Group and had dinner at the new Cirque du Soleil show onboard. Both were true to the original (which Mom and I had already seen). I’ll have a full report soon.

My inner shutterbug yearns for more time in Europe and specifically in Mallorca. (Pictured above is a rare, 16th century window in a medieval town near Alcudia, Spain.) A cruise only lets you experience a small sliver of a destination, and leaves you hungry for more.

  1. Mallorca is so fabulous.  It always amazes me how blue the water is there.  I have a wonderful picture I took there from the cliffs in the 90’s and it always makes me happy.  Glad you at least got a slice – you will have to go back for more!

  2. Mallorca was my favorite too.  I don’t know if you got to go to Valldemossa or not, but that was an amazing little town.  I could have spent hours there.

  3. I just got back from a Mediterranean Cruise with my daughter & grand daughter. Ours concentrated on Italy 90%. I agree with Chris. There is so much to see that it would take a week or more in each port. Maybe one day.
