The Markan was in exceptional condition (it’s a brand new boat) and the crew were all friendly but the food was very disappointing.

My favorite island was Korcula

Very nice boat to travel the Dalmatian islands

To stop st many islands/ little ports and villages. The food was awful, the cook couldn’t cook at all, coffee machine very bad, wine by far too expensive.

Wonderful cruise, amazing staff and Captain

Great way to see the smaller islands. Staff could not have been friendlier. The captain often stopped to chat and give us information on current locations. Ivan and Milos at the bar/servers were the best but every single staff member was wonderful. Always friendly and willing to help. There is a sit down lunch each day and 3 sit down dinners which are optional. We preferred to take advantage of the buffet breakfast and saved our appetites for the food in the ports we visited - we sat outside and enjoyed the view. Loved the swim stops. Our cruise director was always on hand to answer questions and assist us. The ship is only a few months old. Cabins are well designed with lovely bathrooms which are more spacious than the mega ships. One of the best vacations we have had. We hope we have another opportunity to sail on the Markan ship. We were fortunate to travel with some wonderful passengers from the US, New Zealand and Australia who were extremely kind and considerate.
