An ancient Mediterranean buffer between Europe’s Italian and Balkan Peninsulas, the Adriatic Sea links these two spheres of Europe historically, economically, and culturally, yet the differences between the two peninsulas are vast and intriguing.
The Balkan side is bordered by a disproportionately long Croatian shoreline, bejeweled with over one thousand sun-drenched islands sharing much that is culturally Croatia, yet each with a distinctive ambience, story, and flair. Cruising the islands has stirred the imagination of travelers for eons.
The centerpiece of the Adventure is the 7-night cruise embarking in the historic city of Split, home to the gargantuan, and still used, Diocletian’s Palace, and disembarking in the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, equally historic and even more picturesque.
The Mega Yacht “My Way”, built in 2018 to full EU Solis requirements, is a deluxe cruise vessel featuring the latest state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. This sleek design and great service will provide a spectacular way to visit the Adriatic.
A young and vibrant crew of 7 plus a cruise director are attentive to your needs. Free WiFi (subject to signal). Non-smoking interiors. Currency: Croatian Kuna.
Public areas include a large, fully air-conditioned restaurant, an outdoor lounge, partially covered sun deck with comfortable lounge chairs, and a swimming platform at the rear which provides easy access to the water.
Its 20 spacious and comfortable cabins allow for a maximum of 39 passengers, are fully equipped with air conditioning, safe, wardrobe and a porthole (Low Deck) or window (Main & Upper Decks). All cabins have private bathrooms.
All cabins are outward-facing. The Adventure price is based upon cabins on the Lower Deck, of which there are 8. Lower Deck cabins are, on average, more spacious, ranging between 172 and 204 sq. ft. These cabins have 2 rectangular windows in a porthole style; they let in light but do not open. Though all cabins have air conditioning, Lower deck cabins stay a bit cooler since they are partially below the waterline. 8 cabins are available on the Lower deck, 6 doubles (1 larger bed) and 2 twins (2 beds). Upgrades are available as follows:
- Main deck-Category B: These cabins range between 128 and 188 sq. ft. and have a larger “hopper” window that opens from the top. The window is high on the wall and not designed for viewing. Doors on Main deck cabins open to the walkway that encircles the ship, letting in even more air and light when open. 5 cabins are available on the Main deck, 1 single and 4 twins. The upgrade fee is $450 per person.
- Upper deck-Category A: These cabins range between 156 and 161 sq. ft. They are forward of the dining room and are the only 3 cabins on this deck. Upper deck cabins also have a “hopper” window opening from the top with doors that open on the ship walkway and decking. In addition, the front two cabins have large picture windows over the bed looking forward over the bow of the ship. The 3rd cabin is a bit larger. The 3 cabins on the Upper deck are all double cabins. The upgrade fee is $625 per person.
