Our tour guide was amazing. She was really interesting and very good at organising us and everything else. Local guides were first class. The boat was spacious, clean and well designed. The crew were friendly and helpful.

If you have any food allergies or intolerancies, communicate this when booking.

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

All crew and guides were local.

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

We felt very looked after, but we also had lots of opportunities to go off on bikes and go walking on our own.

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

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 travellers booking this holiday?

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 holiday 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 holiday 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 holiday?

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 travellers booking this holiday?

Just do it!

3. Did you feel that your holiday 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 holiday 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.
