This is the second time we have cruised with this company and I have nothing bad to say about either trips except on the subject of the poor wi-fi available on the ship. The current trip started in Venice, went to Croatia and ended up in ... Read more

In common with some others we found the food, though reasonable in quality, to be extremely bland and uninteresting. One exception was a lunchtime special dish of casseroled octopus Croatian style. The largely Filipino staff are ... Read more

I was attracted to this cruise by the range of excursions offered but I was concerned by some of the negative reviews. I need not have worried. The ship is certainly a little elderly, like most of her passengers, but, like them, she has ... Read more

The fact that this ship is a converted car ferry says a lot. The owners have done their best with it but the ship was laid down in 1973 and things like engine noise suppression cannot be as good as with modern, specifically built, cruise ... Read more
