Croatia Ahoy! Happy Days Afloat.

The chance to experience a variety of places in Croatia by sea rather than on busy roads. Swim stops. The crew were friendly and relaxed but also professional at all times which I think was instrumental in creating a happy and friendly relationship among the other guests on board. Everyone got on.

Wonderful from beginning to end

Sitting beneath the stars with the illuminated church in Magarska behind me whilst I was eating ice cream and watching a performance of Klapa singers - a magical memory. The absolute beauty of Korcula with its waterfront areas and the 'fishbone'' streets running off the main street, it's designed for exploring. Both of these are places I never knew of but which I would love to return to.

We had a phantastic Dalmatian-Paradise-trip on the Ave Maria

The food and the drinks were excellent, the daily swim stops a highlight especially for the kids (but also us adults), and the overnight stops in the beautiful towns well planned. The other travellers on board were also nice, and even our kids (14 and 18 years old) had other kids of similar age to talk to.

Recommended for
Difficult to mention only three best things - this trip was perfect. But here three things: 1) The Ave Maria is a luxury vessel, 2) the chef indeed knows how to cook, and crew was always friendly. 3) As we travelled during corona-times there were not that many other tourists in the ports, and the cruise was very good value for money.

Absolutely perfect!

We’ve had a fantastic time on the Meridijan. The itinerary was very well planned, it was relaxing, fun and beautiful! We would do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our holiday so special despite all the travelling restrictions we’ve had to overcome to travel to Croatia! It was so worth it!

Getting to see so much of the beauty of Croatia in such a short space of time. The boat traveled from Dubrovnik to Split and we stopped in Dubrovnik, Slano, Mijet, Korčula, Vis, Hvar and Split overnight. I loved being able to relax on board the boat and be transported to each destination with the luxury of having breakfast & three course lunches included. My trip also included guided tours on the islands, wine tasting, oyster tasting, olive oil tasting, a welcome dinner, captains dinner with entertainment among more. I was traveling solo so it was lovely to have these group activities included and I left Croatia after meeting new found friends. We had a very nice group on board the Aurelia and a very interesting tour guide who was passionate about Croatia and taught us so much about the country’s historical past. I enjoyed exploring each island in the free time we had there also & I loved the top deck of the boat with jacuzzi and deck chairs to relax on as the boat traveled to the islands. It was extremely relaxing and for someone who is used to planning their own trips and itineraries it was just wonderful to sit back and relax and see and do so much without the stress of all the organising. I found a company that did not charge me a solo supplement for my cabin so this was an added plus. The trip was better than I expected abs would definitely recommend.

Something different

Arriving at the dock, I found many boats, and no clear indication as to how I would find mine. A guy in a Katerina T shirt helped me to find it, and it was right there on the quay. The boats are moored one after the other, so we are obliged to pass through one boat to find another. I was just happy that my boat was the first one. My luggage was taken on board and I was offered a nice cocktail as a welcome drink with other passengers, and we began to chat and introduce ourselves, so we were soon set for the voyage. Once we were all aboard, we were allocated cabins, and our luggage was taken there for us. Every morning a bell would ring to indicate breakfast, and again at lunch time, otherwise we would occupy ourselves on the different decks and look forward to swimming stops and then the port for the night, where we would disembark to find a restaurant to eat. Many different Nationalities were on board, but generally, most people had some English. Friendships were formed and people would leave in groups to explore and look for a restaurant. Our guide left notices about tours on offer at each port, and also the menu for the day. She would offer advice and often spoke at lunch time to introduce us to the next port of call. There was also a video screen with details to follow. Our jolly cook provided a good selection of dishes, and even made cakes for the odd birthday and anniversary celebration. The bar was run by a really hard-working young lady who was always there to help, from six in the morning to revive us with a cup of tea, until we retired for bed with a happy night cap. Our tour was in Croatia, but I understand tours can be had in other destinations. It is a good idea for a holiday, where you have good scenery, variety of destinations, and can join in or not as the mood takes you.

Amazing trip!

Visiting Dubrovnik, makarska and Bol. I would have liked to stay in Bol longer as this was my favourite place but we were only there a few hours which was disappointing. It felt as though our tour ended on the Friday early afternoon rather than on Saturday as we sailed back to Spilt early without a swim stop and it all felt a bit of a rush and not the best way to end the trip.
