We’ve spent five days here in the Marina Port de Mallorca after the transit from England to get everything back in shape – a few fixes here and there and we think we’re good to go.
Palma is the capital of the island of Mallorca, located in a giant bay of the same name. It’s a sailor’s paradise. Known for its sun and beach tourism, it also has an incredible historic quarter. The Cathedral, the Almudaina Palace, the Lonja fish market and Plaza Mayor are just a few of the sites. The most beautiful monuments are surrounded by fishing boats, pine forests and palm trees. The landscape of the island is full of coves, beaches and cliffs on the coast, and inland are towns and mountain ranges up to 5,000 feet high.
Spirit is starting its exploration of this idyllic Mediterranean island today, now that the 2,000 mile transit from England is behind us, Sue and Teri have now joined Pat and me for our inaugural cruise. High expectations abound.
