Ship docks on a Sunday morning so do not expect things to be buzzing early on.  

Ships in Port are Constellation and Wind Star.

Celebrity Shuttle bus from Quay to drop off point at Gothic Cathedral. NB Ship could be moored some distance from dock gates.

Palma has a very special ambience and the main sights are all grouped together at the heart of the city near the picturesque harbour. The great Gothic cathedral and Almudaina Palace stand opposite each other and are the main tourist highlights, while the nearby Arab Baths take you farther back in time and the numerous museums are sure to entice history buffs.

 

Visiting on a Sunday means services will be being held in the Cathedral. Having climbed the steps from the drop off point stay to the left of the building and go around the side where there is access through a side door  through Casa de l'Almoina (Alms House 1529) and the  Puerta de l'Almoina (1498), which is opened only during church services.

 

Please be aware that topless bathing is permitted on the beaches in Mallorca.
