We were lucky not have to tender as had been expected. We took a ship's tour to Solarna and Trogir. Solarna was a set of old Roman ruins (not great) and Trogir another mediaeval town – in fairness quite pleasant. It was very hot and crowded so we passed on walking round Split though the main sights did seem to be close to the dock.

We took a guided tour round Split ((on foot) and the guide was most knowledgeable. We had an hour to spend in Split when the tour had finished. We were then taken by coach to a lovely little town an hour away and were taken on a boat ride down the Gorge. After what was a delightful boat trip we stopped and were given traditional lunch of bean soup, chicken, potatoes and then dinky donuts all washed down with red/white wine. Very good trip and very good value.

The guide was great but paid extra for a bus instead of the walking tour. I think we were in the bus for a total of 5 minutes. Quickly worked out on shore tours organised by MSC were a rip off.

The guide Monica was excellent but the driver wasn't that great. Harsh breaking, answering calls whilst driving was a downer. There was half an hour walking tour which was excellent and then the bus tour which was average as you're given a digital device which plays prerecorded information that is controlled by the guide who did mess up at times. Lots of stop and start but Split is beautiful!

The only downside to this tour was the fact that many of the stores in Split did not take the Euro. In fact, there were 2 stores that we were interested in buying souvenirs but when Euros were not accepted we left. I was not willing to exchange Euros for Kunas for the short time we were there.

St. Barth's, Gustavia - Our excursion was a trip around the Island on an ATV really a great and beautiful adventure, and we saw about 80% of the Island.

We did not get to visit the National Park, but we were in Oia, Trogir, Omis and got to see some lovely beaches. We also had a genuine Dalmation lunch of "peka" which takes hours to cook s we had to order it in advance. I really loved the little alleys and streets in Trogir. The line for the cable car on return was very long.

Scenic Dalmatia and Village life Best excursion I did: the views from the coach alone were worth the trip. Trogir was wonderful, and our guide was very knowledgeable, and the hill top village we stopped at for our light lunch was wonderful. Every picture I took was prettier than the last. I fell in love with Croatia on this tour and have told everyone since I have been back how lovely it was.

crowed and hot. Try to go early to avoid the crowds and the heat. Split was next and a nice surprise when we got off the boat we took the tour bus (about 20 Euro) it took us around Split which isn't very big and that lasted about 45 minutes and then we had a guide to walk us through the ruins which was very good, we enjoyed it there, not too many people. Some people went to the beach, there are a couple of beaches within walking distance.

Split, Croatia, was our next port of call, and we booked shore excursion AT06, Dalmatian Coastline & Village Life. The Solstice docked at sea and the ship's lifeboats acted as tenders - this was handled efficiently and effectively. We met our tour guide at the dock in Split, where he ultimately brought us through Split as well as Trogir. The palace of Emperor Diocletian now essentially encapsulates the modern city of 'old' Split, the old and the new seamlessly meshing together. We especially enjoyed the smaller town of Trogir, a World Unesco Heritate Site. The Cathedral of St. Lawrence, with the klapa singers in the square, was very memorable. I had 'visions of Rick Steves' with the klapa singers - very enjoyable! Our guide then took us to Jurlinovi Dvori in Draga-Primosten for a full lunch - amazing! Authentic, delicious, very local! The pork chops there were the best ever! All of the dishes were served family style by the 'lady of the house'. Very lovely.
