Air Travel

The cheapest round-trip air fare to Palma, Mallorca (PMI) was $622 from EWR when we checked in October 2017. The least expensive carrier at that time was SAS, and the layover was in Copenhagen.

Swiss Air also had affordable flights, with connections through Zurich or Geneva.

Assuming that you're spending one night in a hotel before boarding, your flight to Palma will arrive on August 31 for first-week crew or on September 7 for second-week crew. Your flight home will leave Palma on September 8 for first-week crew or September 15 for second-week crew.


We will make hotel reservations for all crew members consistent with their travel plans. The hotel is the Santa Clara Hotel, an historic 17th-century palace converted to a 4-star boutique hotel. It's in the heart of Palma, a short walk from tourist attractions, shops, and the beach. It has a rooftop terrace with a view of the cathedral and the sea. The hotel's phone number is 011-34-971-729-231. The room rate was $206 when we checked.
