Travel Diary | Mediterranean Cruise | Palamos, Spain

28th July 2015

Palamos, Spain

I can’t believe I have come to the end of my Mediterranean Cruise Travel Diary series already! It’s been great to look back at the wonderful holiday Tyrone and I shared together that was, without a doubt, one of the best holidays I have ever been on.

My final post is all about Palamos; the last stop on our cruise before returning to Mallorca to fly home. Similar to my Corsica post, this one will be short and sweet, because we only really spent a few hours ashore in Palamos.

Palamos is a town on the coast of mainland Spain. It is about a 2 and a half hour drive from Barcelona, so many people on our cruise were off on excursions to the city. As the ship was leaving Palamos early I knew this would mean little time to explore Barcelona, and you need a lot more than just a few hours to see all the famous sites. It’s impossible to do it all in one day, which is why I’d like to back with Tyrone and spend about a week there.

In Palamos we had a very slow stroll around the town (legs still aching from Rome!), popping in to have a look around a few shops. We called in at a supermarket to buy some of my favourite treats that are only available in Continental Europe (silly UK), such as white chocolate covered Oreos and Milka with Oreos. Yep, I do love Oreos.

We found a bench and enjoyed this beautiful view for a while, before retuning back to our ship to enjoy our last day of being all inclusive. Naturally, the cocktails were flowing and I ate way to much food, but I felt I had to make the most of it while I could.

  1. These photos are amazing! It looks beautiful! Definitely going to backtrack and read through the rest of your posts from this series. And make myself jealous to the point of tears in the process probably haha! xx

    I’ve loved reading your travel posts. It looks like you had a lot of fun πŸ™‚

    What a beautiful view! Love your dress πŸ™‚

  3. My boyfriend wants to go to Spain, I would have went to Barcelona for the day just to see the soccer stadium πŸ˜› I do not know how you didn’t just lie on the beach when you docked! The water looks gorgeous! I am currently budgeting to try and do The Azores (in Portugal) for 10 days because that’s all the holidays we can take. You should definitely do a post on budgeting for these trips and saving tips (not sure if you have I am going to the search bar after this comment. πŸ˜› )

      I went to the football stadium when I was 5 with my parents! I don’t remember it very well but I have photographs to prove it, haha!

      I would have spent some time of the beach but the free alcohol and food on the boat were calling!! I would love to visit the Azores as I studies them quite a lot in my degree.

      Great idea! I’ll add it to the list of blog post ideas. πŸ˜‰

  4. Lovely views, your trip was amazing. The Q&A regarding cruises sounds very interesting, I can’t wait to read it.

    From your entries, it looked like you saw so many great places πŸ™‚ I haven’t heard of Palamos, but it looks like a lovely city. I love the look of the beach with all the boats along it. I’m glad you had a fun trip!

    I wouldn’t want to do a cruise trip myself, but it really seems like a good way to see many places and some different countries in a short time! I haven’t heard of Palamos either, but then, I’m not very familiar with Spain either.

      Cruises aren’t for everyone but I just love waking up somewhere new everyday. I hadn’t heard of Palamos until I visited.
