Idyllic 5-day stay in Palma

"Myself and my family have just completed an amazing 5-day stay on MY 'Charisma' in Marina Port de Mallorca in Palma. The owner, Andrew, was extremely responsive and is still being so as he assists us to re-home an iPad that was left on board by one of the kids! Our fear that the air-con would not be 'man' enough for the intense heat proved unfounded and we were also impressed with the showers onboard. The icing on the cake, for me, was being greeted by a 6-pack of ice-cold 'San Miguel' upon opening the fridge in the galley on our arrival - perfect! All this for less than the cost of 2 hotel rooms in a 3* hotel without a balcony or view - is a no-brainer in my opinion! Thanks for the memories 'Charisma' - we will be returning....!"

The home of the 1992 Olympic sailing events, the Olympic Port with its world class facilities, plays host to several Beds on Board boats from which to explore historic Barcelona - one of the most popular places to go for winter sun.
