From booking to boarding the flight home we had faultless service. Punctuality, friendly staff and comfort on board a spotlessly clean ship all added to our total enjoyment of this holiday. The cycle tours were challenging with spectacular scenery on well-maintained bikes. Food on board was varied, delicious and plentiful. The town tours and surprise visits were informative and free from any additional expense .Probably the best holiday we have ever had - if only England had beaten Croatia in the football match!!! (The fireworks and celebrations in Zadar that night were a compensation)Peter Barber, UK, July 2018
