5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was a great trip! I'd researched various cruises and this appeared to visit most of the places I wanted to see in Croatia the Dalmatian Islands and coastline.
As a single parent, with two children we enjoyed a routine of cruise, swimming in the mornings and sightseeing in the afternoons! The crew went out of their way in meal preparation, plain friendliness and customer service. They were all more than willing to share the history of Croatia or their own stories a number of the crew served in the Croatian military, during the war!.
There were a number of families with children, from France. They were exceptionally friendly and we soon were spending much of our time together, including our dinners in the towns we visited at night there is only one dinner included in the cruise! It was sometimes a challenge finding a restaurant, that suited everybody's price range and types of food Seafood is popular on the coast and not everyone in our group ate it but, it always ended up being part of the adventures!
The cruise director, Bruno, was a tremendous asset and help also. Some of the non-English speaking passengers did not always understand the itinerary and would be upset. Bruno did his best to help everyone and include them in activities, even when they were late to sign up for them.
This will be a great memory, for my children and myself!

The island hopping tour was brilliant. The travel agent was extremely helpful pre-cruise and during. The ship is beautifully kept, the bedrooms are really comfy and more than adequate, food onboard is plentiful and tasty, the crew are brilliant and it's the best way to see the amazing Adriatic Coast!

Everything was great including the delicious meals and service from the staff and crew


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

I would thoroughly recommend this tour - it is the perfect way to see Croatia as it stops at loads of islands. The crew were fantastic, food was very tasty and the accommodation was great. The boat stopped at coves and inlets so you could swim each day as well as stopping at picturesque towns. We even joined the cycling tour on a few occassions, which was spectacular - definitely worth hiring bikes to explore the islands. Overall, my partner and I had the best vacation so far and would recommend it to everyone!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This journey was a genuine surprise. We booked it without earlier experience of such adventures and it was great. Staff were helpful, food was good, accommodation opening onto the deck was fine and the few days sailing the Dalmatian Cost was a dream. We are Australian and we found that most fellow passengers were keen cyclists and had booked a package and guide allowing them to do that when we stopped. Few spoke english but we managed OK. Suggest enquirers check out these aspects. A great experience overall. Terry and Lorraine Australai

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The crew is terrific, the food excellent and the boat and stops made at islands and coves for swimming were more than my expectations. I'd recommend this trip highly.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

Three generations of the family took this tour. All of us had an amazing experience. Croatia is beautiful. Our boat was scrupulously clean. The food was great and served in a family atmosphere. The crew were friendly and helpful. The itinerary was well thought out and offered a mix of historic towns for sightseeing, beautiful islands for hiking and biking, and lovely coves and beaches for snorkeling and swimming. Altogether the best vacation ever. Take this tour. You will be glad you did.

We had a great tour for the past 8 nights.
We saw several villages, towns, a national park, Dubrovnik and enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear water.
The boat was not full so we had plenty of space.
We travelled with friends and found the other guests friendly.
The food and service was great
The only issue we had was with smokers.
There were several times when we smelt smoke in our cabin coming through the air conditioner.
As we are reformed smokers ourselves we resent that we were made passive smokers after paying for the trip same as everyone else.
I would not bother with the bike ride around the salt lake.
