FORMER politician and billionaire businessman Clive Palmer has splashed out on a luxury Mediterranean cruise - just a month after he faced a court clutching a sick bag and breathing device.

Mr Palmer had told the Federal Court, where liquidators were pursuing $66 million in entitlements for workers sacked from his Queensland Nickel refinery, that he was suffering pancreatitis and had earlier undergone a gall bladder operation.

But, having dropped from 153kg to 95kg, Palmer looked a picture of health as he boarded the luxury­ cruise ship in Spain with his wife Anna and daughter Emily.

The Daily Telegraph tracked the former mining magnate to the Port of Barcelona, where Mr Palmer and a select group of more than 20 family, close friends and employees embarked on a 24-day European cruise on Friday.

Tickets are understood to cost about $10,000 each.
