Excellent trip aboard the Arca yacht

The beautiful cities of Split and Dubrovnik. The views while sailing to each port were beautiful and peaceful. The yacht was very comfortable for traveling on even rough seas.

Great in-depth Croatian cruise with swim stops

Liked amount of time off the ship w overnight docking, allows enough time to tour, have dinner and see town at night without being too rushed. Liked daily swim stops. Need to add Dubrovnik stop or end of trip for optional hotel stay. Director is excellent. Would have liked an add-on ($) option to daily walking city tour. 1-hr city walk + addition location, beach stop, palace, garden, kayaking tour, bikes, bus, sunset catamaran sail. One or two more onboard activities, cooking demonstration, wine tasting or mixology lesson, paint and sip or cocktail ($) /appetizer hour to get passengers together socializing. Boat and room are modern and very clean thanks to crew. Mattresses are extremely hard, uncomfortable. Towels are poor quality, rough, over bleached. Make a huge difference to invest in better bedding and towels. A little more variety in breakfast and lunch. Maybe rotate crepes, pancakes, waffles, potatoes to just eggs. Leave croissants and pastries out for a few hours in case you want to skip the large breakfast or eat smaller like 1hr later. Lunch/dinner served a lot of fish. Maybe a second meat, more variety or second side choice or Mexican, Asian, antipasto bar etc. night to change it up? Croatia’s food is not varied, when you serve local food identical to off-boat dinner options it’s a little redundant.

El crucero es fabuloso. El ruido del motor a las 5 de la mañana es lo peor.

Los pueblos visitados y las excursiones han sido espectaculares.
