The Palma Port Authority has changed course and has admitted that there are too many cruise ships visiting the port of Palma. They are looking at ways to reduce the impact of these ships on Palma and one of the proposals is to divert some to Alcudia, which has its own cruise terminal. This is good news but perhaps it is a question of too little too late. But if there had been greater planning from the start then this problem would never have occurred. The port authority should have ensured that a maximum of say three cruise ships could only visit Palma on any given day. This would have ensured that there was not a problem of overcrowding in Palma. At the moment there are five ships in port one day and only one the next.
