Thank you for your feedback and I am glad to see you really enjoyed the trip.
I am a little surprised to to see that you don't think the cruise will have benefited the local economy. The vessel is owned and crewed by Croatians, and all the food served on board is bought locally.
Additionally you will have eaten ashore on most nights providing income for all the small restaurants and cafes that line the ports, and many of which grow their own produce locally,
including wine, cheese and olives.
The vessels pay mooring fees to the small ports that larger vessels cannot access thus helping maintain the ports facilities. In helping provide the local economy with some income from small ships you help to provide the alternative for the small islands who could
dredge a deep water port and invite large cruise ships to dock. The small ships also mean that it is not necessary to build hotels and the related infrastructure in environmentally and culturally sensitive areas by providing accommodation when demand is high.
