Sail Date: Aug 2016
Cabin:

APT "small ship" cruise, initially going from Venice to Istanbul - owing to the political situation in Turkey the cruise finished in Athens rather than Istanbul.

The ship was the Island Sky with a passenger capacity of only 114 plus some 70 crew. The ship's officers were a multi-national collection with most of the crew coming from The Philippines. First class crew and service. Nothing was too much trouble. Most spoke very good English and the whole operation ran like like clockwork.

Safety drills were well organised with clear guidance. The ship's hygiene was also first class.

Port Reviews

Zadar

About 2+ hours from Zadar. Wonderful scenic lakes. Rather overcrowded - not the cruise company's fault - the Croatian authorities need to limit the number of visitors.

Hvar

Walking tour of delightful old city.

Split

An interesting old city.

Dubrovnik

Great views across the old city and surrounding area and bay. Very little to do other than admire the view.

Dubrovnik

Very interesting walk around the old city walls.
