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.
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
