Reiseleders vurdering etter vårt cruise, Kroatia på langs

Rapport etter studietur ombord på MY Apolon på turen Croatia på langs september 2018.

 

MY Apolon is a 5* ship with 19 cabins divided between the main deck and lower deck. No lift between decks. The cabins are what I would call big with private toilet and big shower. Toiletries included. Daily cleaning and fresh towels. Aircon in all cabins.

The yacht is built in 2016 and the Captain is the owner. The yacht is comfortable with 4 decks available for the guests, lower deck with cabins, main deck with cabins with sea view, upper deck with salon, bar, restaurant and outside seating areas. On the top, we find a huge sundeck with a big jacuzzi and enough sun chairs for all the guests at the same time.

Trip includes breakfast and lunch served on board. The breakfast is rather simple but tasty and enough, as there is a lot of fresh fruit available. Free coffee, tea, juice and water.

The lunch is not a lunch. It’s a full dinner with starter, main course and dessert. Two BIG glasses of wine are also included. In addition, there was a great salad buffet. The food at lunch was excellent with different dishes and for all the guests to be satisfied.

The crew onboard were polite and nice. The bar was open from 7 am till 11 pm every day and you paid for everything when you checked out. Pls, note that the bill and tips had to be paid in cash, local currency only. It would be easier if they could take credit cards.

Even if the route will be changed next year to a return trip from Dubrovnik which is very positive, it is a really nice trip. Relaxing with two hours swimming stops every day and the visits were all very interesting and worth seeing. The local guides were as expected, informative and I think it was ok that the 4 all walking sightseeings only lasted for 1-1,5 hours as the heat in Croatia can be rather high in the summer season.

The Cruise Manager did his job as expected, but I was impressed by the very informative TV screen where he put up daily information about the next destination with tips for restaurants etc. Easy to use your phone to take pictures of this info and you had full control when leaving the yacht in the afternoon. +++ The daily program was also put up on a board, no excuses for the guests to forget anything onboard. Very good.

All in all, it’s a nice trip to a very beautiful location.

Thank you for the trip.
