Why not join us on one of our very popular coastal cruises off Croatia -in September (Considered the very best month of the year to cruise and swim in local waters) Our weeks holiday starts onboard in Split on 25th September…( Ask about joining some of the group a few days earlier in Trogir - a lovely coastal village just 2 miles from the airport)
OUR CRUISE “LINER"
Built in 2018, the M/V SAN ANTONIO can accommodate just 38 passengers in 18 comfortable double/ twin and well-equipped en suite cabins PLUS TWO SINGLE CABINS….(book early they will sell out quickly) Each cabin has air conditioning, a PA system, ample storage space, a sofa, a safety deposit box, and a window or port hole. This “Superior de luxe” vessel is ‘top of the range” in the local fleet and boasts modern high-tech features and inviting communal areas. Be as chatty or as reserved as you choose in the dining area, with tables spaced far enough apart to offer an element of privacy at mealtimes. You will only be alone if you chose to be! There’s an air-conditioned indoor lounge area and bar, complete with TV, and a spacious sundeck with hot tub/ jacuzzi. Whether you’re seeking sun or shade, the sundeck lets you enjoy the views and breezes in comfort. Ladders provide convenient access to the sea for water sports and swimming and, the two outside showers mean you don’t have to trail sand or seawater back into your cabin. If you need to stay connected with home or work the ship offers free Internet throughout.
Join our seven-night voyage of exploration & relaxation from Split returning after 7 days gentle cruising just for you to enjoy the treasures of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. Guided tours are included on some days (see below) in the larger towns we visit. Beautiful views, plenty of swimming stops, excursions, and activities enable you to fully appreciate the area’s diversity.
Airport transfers are included in your cruise package.
