This was my fourth Vantage trip and my favorite! Croatia was a beautiful country. Each day had something special to offer. I would have liked more cruising time on La Perla.

Croatia and the Pearls of the Adriatic was fantastic! The pre-trip extension to Montenegro was a great way to start the trip. The accommodations, including La Perla, were wonderful, and the customer service throughout the trip was fantastic. The tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful, and the local guides were full of information and enthusiastic.

If you haven't been to Croatia - - GO!

Everything about the Croatian coast from Opatija to Dubrovnik far exceeds anything you would find on Italy's Amalfi Coast or the French Rivera. The country is unspoiled, clean, and safe with lots of history to see. Cities and towns are in fine condition, beaches abound (although rocky), and the people are the friendliest in the world. We have never seen such clean sea water and no air pollution. It's impressive the Croatians have been able to rebuild their country after the Croatian War of Independence from 1990 - 1995.

Wonder about food and wine, well it too is extraordinary. They don't export their wine because they drink it there!

Our trip on the 28 passenger La Perla was incredible. Their staff of waiters, bar tenders, cabin housekeepers, deck crew, and Captain was well worth the long flight over from the US of this 12 day trip. The owner of La Perla, Luka Bubalo, is so proud of his ship that he had his father accompany us to make sure everything went smoothly.

We had an knowledgeable outstanding Tour/Cruise Director, Tomislav Bukovsek, who went over and above, taking extra effort to make sure everyone was happy. Before the sea portion of the trip, we spent 2 days in Opatija in a sea side hotel that offered affordable fine food and drink. At the end of the trip, we spent 2 days in the Croatian capital of Zagreb.

Definitely put this area of the world on your "bucket list". Ken and Susan

Borut was the most informative, knowledgeable tour guild we have ever met. Kudo's to you for having him join your team! Our travels with him and on La Perla deserve more than a five star rating.

OVERALL RATING
Traveler:Peter and Elaine Bono
Gender: Male
Vantage Journeys Taken:1
Traveled:April 2016

We took the Slovenia pre-trip, which is well-worth the extra money. Borut was a wonderful trip director; the scenery was magnificent, and the lodgings and food top-class.

The main tour was equally wonderful, with well-planned logistics and interesting activities. We were bothered by more rain than expected, but Ned, our cruise director, worked very skillfully to minimize the impacts on us.
Our ship, La Perla, was well-manned by friendly and accommodating staff. We enjoyed our daily interactions with the Owner, the Captain and the rest of the Crew.

Highly recommend, but I might suggest going a bit later in the season (late May to early June), although you risk having larger crowds esp. in Dubrovnik.

Croatia & Venice: Pearls of the Adriatic

OVERALL RATING
Traveler:PAT HOSHINO

Vantage Journeys Taken:1
Traveled:September 2015

This was a wonderful trip - Croatia is a beautiful country, and seeing it with a small group on this ship was the perfect way to travel. The cabins are a little small, but well designed. I had a deluxe room for one, and two large people would find the beds a bit small. The food was ok. There were two selections for each meal. This may improve as this was only the second sailing. There was an hour or so tour at the beginning of each port. Some of these ports were pretty small and a short orientation by the tour director would have been sufficient in my opinion. We had an extremely good and knowledgeable tour guide. He was also a great person who went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable. Swimming off the boat was also a great experience in the beautiful, clear water. Wish we had done more of it. I would definitely recommend this trip.
