1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was all memorable, every day was something different to look forward to. I loved Dubrovnik old town and was glad that we booked a couple of extra nights at the start of our vacation.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take sea shoes / surf socks as most of the beaches are pebbled and rocky to enjoy a swim in the sea. Take a handful of pegs and a small bottle of hand wash to rinse out swim wear and light weight clothing, there are a few places on the top deck to hang items out. Extend your trip with extra nights at the beginning and end in a hotel or apartment.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Visiting the small islands supported the local economies. The drinking water is safe in Croatia so take a reusable drink bottle to refill when on land sight seeing.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a great vacation, well organised, good food, lovely and knowledgable crew, relaxed and casual. We were also fortunate to have a super group of guests on board, a range of ages with families and couples from all over the world - Australia, New Zealand, USA, South Africa, UK and France.

All crew and guides were local.

review 3 Jun 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Walking through the islands visited with plenty of time to explore. Having overnights at port, also, provided not only some night life entertainment, but also an early morning walk before departure (for those later morning departures). The lectures by Stan, our cruise program director, were useful and informative. Actually, the whole staff were very friendly and approachable - a highlight for me.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't forget your bathing suit....like I did! Also, bring attire for any rain or sprinkles.... like I didn't! If you are challenged by up/down steps and uneven walking terrain, be sure to ask the tour/excursion director about conditions of the tour beforehand. If you like your salads at lunchtime, you'll have to be quick as not enough was presented for 40 paying passengers. This was a 'downer' for me.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think the local economy was impacted, and having a small ship also cuts down on harmful impacts on marine life in the seas

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

3 out of 7 nights were spent on the mainland Croatia. I would have preferred those evenings in the islands to explore more there. Overall, I'd rate my 7 days/nights at 7 out of 10 (ten being excellent).

review 10 Oct 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The experience on MV Papa Prvi was great. The crew was friendly, accommodating and very professional; we were in good hands. It was my first cruise; the boat size (max 38) was just right.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Just do it!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Each night we ate locally; this was of benefit to the communities. The bigger ships had full board.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The cruise on the Papa Prvi was a definite 10/10!

Definitely benefitted local people. We bought meals and gifts while in port.

Wonderful! Nice guests on our cruise and a professional staff.
