Amazing Week

Review for: Adriatic Princess Split-Split M/S Adriatic Princess

From the time we were met at the wharf we were looked after day and night. The staff were so accommodating. The food was first class, fresh, well presented and lots of it. The cabins were as comfortable as cabins can be. The ports we visited were picture perfect and so were the restaurant recommendations. We had a ball.

From the moment we boarded

Review for: New Star Cruise Split - Dubrovnik

From the moment we boarded this beautiful ship we were overwhelmed with awe. The people we met will stay in our memory forever. Every member of the crew were extremely hard working and did everything to make life easier and comfortable. They cooked, cleaned, organised excursions and transfers. The young and effervescent tour director, Etna was extremely helpful and informative, She even sang one evening with a traditional Croatian band that came on board. Every day was almost perfect with some beautiful swim stops at stunning locations and stopping at beautiful ports along the way. The ship was very beautiful and luxurious and the cabins vey spacious. The captain took great pride in his ship. We even saw a crew member cleaning the hull with a spray bottle and cloth while treading water at a swim stop. The meals were great and everywhere was clean. I highly recommend this company!
