Majorca

Saga Sapphire blog - Captains' blogs

9th March, 2018

After a comfortable and relaxing day at sea we sailed into Palma in a mist. It was virtually calm so there was nothing to blow the mist away. No tugs today and we swung around and berthed portside to the quay and the airbridge was connected on time.

Palma’s skyline is usually dominated by the Gothic Cathedral, but today it’s grandeur could only just be seen through the mist.

The main artistic tour of interest today was to Valldemossa, one of Majorca’s most picturesque villages and an inspiration to many creative artists.

There was a tour to the Caves of the Dragon, one of Majorca’s top attractions. There was also a journey on the narrow gauge train through 13 tunnels to Soller, a quaint little town set on a hillside which dates back to the middle ages.

During the day the mist cleared and we ended up with a fine, sunny day.

We departed on time to our last port of call for this cruise, Cadiz.
