Pullmantur Cruise Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Pullmantur cruise ships?

Primarily Spanish speakers, although these cruises are sold to the international market, too. Expect a wide range of ages and a lot of families during school vacations. If you've ever been on a Spanish beach in peak season, expect that experience to be replicated onboard; the concept of personal space is different in Southern Europe, and people don't mind noisy crowds.

Do I have to dress up on a Pullmantur cruise?

No, casual is the order of the day. Although people do make more of an effort in the evenings, you don't need to bring any fancy duds with you.

Is everything free on Pullmantur cruises?

Mostly. Pullmantur is all-inclusive, so most drinks, food in the main dining rooms and buffets and crew tips are all covered. You can upgrade to a premium drinks package if you want premium spirits and wines.

You will pay extra for specialty dining, Wi-Fi and shore excursions.

What are Pullmantur’s most popular activities?

Expect a more traditional array of cruise activities, as Pullmantur's ships are fairly old so you won't find water parks and laser mazes. During the day, passengers gravitate to the pools, though you'll find people in the card rooms and in the casino if its open. Kids spend lots of time in the kids' clubs onboard. By night, things liven up; after dinner, Spaniards enjoy dancing so the nightclubs are busy late into the night.

Why go with Pullmantur?

  • Spain's largest cruise line but suitable for English speakers.
  • Typical Spanish lifestyle, with late dining and lively evenings.
  • Affordable, all-inclusive cruising on midsized ships.

Best for: Spanish-speaking bargain hunters and anyone who loves Mediterranean cuisine

Not for: Cruisers looking for the most modern ships and big-ship amenities

Pullmantur Cruises Cruiser Reviews

Very poor since switched to Monarch much bigger and older ship, horrible cabin!

All in one I would not recommend this except the case you really want to go on this specific itinerary and you cant find another option - take a superior room for the sake of space but count even in Waves the ship and common grounds are same.First night after the disaster and huge disappointment with the cabin we didn't even ate dinner second we came to find out they gave us the worst table ever so we had to fight for our right to have at least a place where I can eat without being enclosed from all side and having serving stuff over my head all time, We ended up eating an hour late as we had to wait for a table.Read More

Really excellent value for money

They were all good with English speaking guides but on one occasion in Fuerteventura our guide left our two friends behind even though they were only 3 or 4 minutes late.We had sailed round the Canary Islands several times before and have a home in Tenerife Being aware this was a Spanish based cruise line with low prices and old ships, this was an experiment.Read More

Surprising Value

We chose this cruiser for the itinerary and the low price which included a basic beverage package, Cabin was dated and the wallpaper worn but the mattress was good, the linens fresh, the plumbing worked and everything was clean.Good sun loungers with refreshingly little 'hogging' which is endemic on American ships.Read More
