We loved Croatia! The cruise was lovely, excellent food and visits. Very comfortable. Bonus to have a jacuzzi! More dinners on the boat as that was a great night! Drinks were very reasonable on board and in the hotel. Food was excellent on the ship much better than we expected. Full breakfasts and 4 course lunches, nicely served by very friendly people.
