Cruising the Dalmatian Coast with TravelMarvel - with 26 passengers aboard.   , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
This was a fabulous holiday, relaxing, cruising, touring, eating, drinking, having fun, meeting new friends and listening to their stories, etc. Our stops included ZADAR (beautiful town); KRKA (National Park with amazing water falls); SIBENIK (lots of history); SPLIT (stunning open air restaurants); KORCULA (more historic fortresses, etc); and finally ...read more we arrived in DUBROVNIK (picture post card beautiful). In each port we get a walking or bus tour to familiarise ourselves with the town. I enjoy looking at all my surroundings but if I felt overloaded with too much history dating back to the 9th century about the Otterman era, Roman, Venetian etc. I simply wandered off on my own.
Dalmatian Elegance in Croatia   , SA, Australia, Jul 2022
Everything to do with the cruise was excellent, the staff, the ship, daily activities destinations and food. The pre trip service was poor. It took a while for the group to be found at Split airport. The pre-tour service was bad. Day one we were not contacted about what the arrangements were for the following day’s embarkation. Information, when ...read more it was provided on day 2 was confusing, contradictory and it seemed disorganised. I was so annoyed that I withdrew from the information sharing activity when the person arrived. It was warm the day we boarded ship, bit of a trek from the hotel to the wharf. Either get a hotel closer or a minibus. We didn’t need to stay such an expensive hotel, although the staff there were very good.
Beautiful cruise on Dalmatian coast   , NSW, Australia, Jul 2022
The Avangard was a well appointed small ship. The crew were superb and so were the meals. Tour director on boat knew his stuff well and did a good job showing us the different towns and cities. Small disappointment was the local guide at Split who did not turn up to pick us up at airport. I had to ring her up to collect our whole group of 9. She only ...read more appeared on day 2 to introduce herself to us. Other than this transfer issue, the rest of our tour was very good.
Dalmatian Elegance cruise via Insight   , Victoria, Australia, Aug 2018
This small ship cruise is a must for all. The very best way to cruise, if you don't like those big ships with thousands of people.
