“We really like to thank you all for making this Croatian journey one to remember for life.
The boat is really well designed, the rooms have excellent size and amenities, more than what we’ve expected. All areas of the boat are spacious and allowed our family of 13 members to get together all the time, but at the same time, we could have areas for privacy.
The boat is in excellent condition and the crew was extremely respectful and joyful, with an attitude towards service that we all enjoyed.
Be sure that we will meet you in the years to come!”
