Wonderful 8 day cruise

Review for: Breathtaking Croatia Cruise Opatija-Split

Wonderful 8 day cruise on the Olmissum from Opatja on September 10 2022. The captain and crew were very professional and helpful in every way! The rooms and facilities were very comfortable and the food was excellent. Our on board tour manager, Josefine, was so knowledgeable about European history that she explained it effortlessly and with a real passion. We will definitely sail with this company again. It’s a great way to discover Croatia!
