The best way to vacation in the Adriatic

I still marvel at how much we did and enjoyed on this cruise. The tours were offered at no additional cost, the meals were unbelievable, and the camaraderie among guests and crew was unforgettable. What an amazing experience!

A very well constructed tour, generally well managed throughout.

There were people from 13 counties across the world among the 34 guests and everyone got along famously. Many new friendships were struck up. With the possible exception of Mljet each location visited presented awesome scenery, amazing hospitality and mind boggling culture. The local people were genuinely friendly wherever we went.

A great way to see the Dalmatian coast

Visited lots of different places which gave us a taste of Croatia - particularly enjoyed Kotar & Havr. Dea our cruise manager was excellent - friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Glad it was a small boat so you could get to know everyone on board & groups on tours were not too big,

Great way to see more of the Croatian coast.

A great mix of nature/scenery experience, swim breaks and historic town visits, with a diverse mix of nationalities and personalities on board. Something different to look forward to at every breakfast. Loved the cabin windows on main deck - panoramic view instead of portholes. Not many ships with that option...

manageable scale, fairly relaxed program, roomy ship
