The boat was excellent, everything very well organised. Excellent food (felt guilty about not being able to finish all the meals! ). The crew were great. Tours were organised well and the local guides were very knowledgeable. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

The staff on the cruise were excellent, but the boat was not. Cabin porthole on waterline so could not see out, heads underwater whilst in bed. Small bathroom, no storage. Wardrobe space very small, life jackets were stored on top of cupboard but it was too narrow so that stopped us opening the wardrobe/cupboard without standing on tiptoe to keep them from falling. Dining room too close together when there was a buffet we had other people's bottoms in our faces whilst trying to eat, also table was sized for 4 and we had 6 on it, it was your move next. No choice of menu, three nights straight off fish, food boring, looked attractive but bland. Gala night we had not been served dessert by 22.10 so gave up. Destinations - all were designed for the excursions, if you did not want to do them free time was limited, and the destinations were boring. Dubrovnik, Korcula and Kotor were the only interesting ones. We have been with Croisi Europe three times on river cruises and enjoyed them, so that is why we booked this cruise, after this we will not be using them again, it was not value for money and we are very disappointed

A beautiful country which we have visited several times. Cruising the wonderful coastline and visiting a few of the islands was a great way to see more.

The cruise on a such small boat was excellent value....

28th May 2017
Trusted Customer

The cruise on a such small boat was excellent value. Good friendly atmosphere. It is a French boat and currency used is Euro (not Kuna as used in Croatia). We were not made aware of this in advance and sometimes inconvenient. Food in itself was very good but (apart from breakfast) very limited in choice. Crew were always very helpful but we felt they concentrated on the greater number of French-speaking passengers. Perhaps understandably so.
