This was out first time in Croatia and first time on a small ship. We had only ever been on large cruise liners with 3000+ people onboard. There were only 35 of us and about 7 or 8 crew. Well, all I can say is that we will never go on a large cruise again as this really is the way to spend a week in such a delightful part of Europe. It was almost like having your own private, luxury yacht, with all the space onboard and the attention of all the fabulous crew, not forgetting Captain Ante who was an extraordinary character. The ship was called the Markan and comes highly recommended, especially as there are balcony rooms on the top deck, for extra privacy. In fact the yacht was immaculate and constantly cleaned. We thoroughly enjoyed Croatia too, which is a beautiful country with so much rich history and character. Sad to be home, still we have some fantastic photos, videos and memories!
