We wanted to visit Croatia and hike while cruising and that was exactly what we got. The ship is very clean, well managed, everything works, smooth and quiet sailing, with excellent staff, food and service. Our cabin was the basic cabin and perfectly adequate. We had two hikes a day with two guides and about 40 passengers so we got to see more of each island, be outside in the lovely weather and get al ot of exercise so we could enjoy the great food and drink in the evenings. Our guides were great, some of the hikes were quite strenuous but always well planned with beautiful scenery everywhere. We enjoyed getting to know the other hiking passengers. I liked the fact that the very reasonable price included everything, all excursions, drinks, etc etc. so there were no "extras". There were fairly simple programs in the evenings which was fine because our days were very full. The Dalmatian coast is absolutely stunning so everywhere we went was gorgeous. Even though there were only 4 English speakers, they provided special English speaking guides in a couple of the cities where there were historical sites.
We will definitely go on another CroisiEurope cruise as soon as we can.
