The board of Balearic Ports Authority agreed to the request of the regional government regarding cruise ships in Palma de Mallorca (Majorca Island, Spain). From January 2022, the ports authority confirmation of cruise ship stopover will have to be given.

Currently, the ship docking permission is automatic. This will change, and stopovers won't be accepted until a confirmation is given and which will be in accordance with parameters to be negotiated by the regional government and CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) in Spain. In case ships meet the criteria, there is "no problem" with stopovers.

The government and CLIA will be negotiating to arrive at a "mutual agreement" in respect of both the number of vessels and their capacity.

According to Palma's councillor for the model of the city, Neus Truyol, there need to be parameters for cruise ships in terms of their "human and environmental sustainability" in order to avoid the pressure that stopovers cause.
