Port of Palma de Mallorca

Palma de Mallorca cruise terminal

When we got up the next morning, Silver Spirit was arriving in the harbor of Palma de Mallorca.

Palma de Mallorca cruise port

AIDAvita in Palma de Mallorca

We moored in a familar location: at the Estació Marítima, Palma's cruise and ferry terminal, which is on the city's western outskirts.

Thomson's Island Escape was tied up on our starboard side; on our left was a car-passenger ferry of  Acciona Trasmediterranea, and a German cruise ship--AIDAvita, one of the AIDA line's "ships with lips"--occupied a berth nearby.

Often, cruise visitors are left to get into the city on their own from the Palma terminal. (During a previous visit with Costa Magica, we spent about 45 minutes walking into town along the scenic waterfront.)

Silversea makes it unnecessary to fight for a cab or hike to the city center: Free shuttle buses run throughout the day in any port where the cruise terminal isn't in the heart of downtown. (During Silver Spirit's port call, the shuttle bus ran every 30 minutes from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m., with a one-hour lunch break.)
