Wow, Croatia is just so beautiful. And this is a brilliant way to experience this country. The ships are wonderful, very comfortable, air conditioned, ensuite cabins, great food and fun crew. The cycling is ideal, not too hard (although we took the e-bikes on 1 day). The National Parks visited are amazing. And no packing and unpacking every day. We are super keen to do this again someday soon. Thanks again!
