IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS

Where do we find our ship?

Ships are docked in Opatija harbor, in Gruž harbor in Dubrovnik and in ferry harbor in Split. In Split, vessels are most often allocated from part of harbor opposite the main bus station and further to the center of the city opposite the train station, next to the building of Port Authority and directly at the main promenade. Representatives of our agency will be in the harbor with the lists of guests’ names, belonging names of the ships and numbers of cabins. They are available to the guests for all information during embarkation.

When can we get on the ship?

Embarkation is on Saturday until 1 p.m., except in Dubrovnik Sundays from 12 p.m. till 6 p.m. Cabins are ready for guests about 12:00 although it is possible to come even earlier during the morning and leave baggage on the ship while the ship is still being cleaned. After welcome speech and presentation of crew members, guests start with their first lunch/dinner in Dubrovnik and the vessel leaves the port.

When is the end of the trip?

Ships are coming back to Split and Opatija on Friday afternoon and in Dubrovnik on Saturday afternoon. Guests have to leave their cabins till 9 a.m. on Saturday/Sunday morning so that the crew can clean the vessel for the next guests. Last meal is breakfast on that morning.

Is there a place to park a car for 7 days?

We can offer our help with parking. In Opatija, our staff will take your car at the parking and charge you for 7 days. in Split, we can recommend you a garage not far from the harbour. Our representatives in harbour Split will give you instructions how to get to the parking after you have left baggage on the ship. We kindly ask you to inform us while making a reservation that you are coming by car. Additional pieces of information for Split: Garage address is: Ulica Branka Šimića 1, 21 000 Split. Please note that the there is 24h surveillance in the garage, however for any damage to the vehicle we are not responsible. To return to the port you can walk (15-20 minutes), take a taxi, or catch a bus on Poljička cesta (in front of Auto Hrvatska building). Bus No. 3, 5, 8, 11, 17 will take you to Zagrebačka ulica (you exit on the 2nd bus stop). Ticket for one ride costs 11 Kuna to be purchased with the driver on the bus in cash, Kuna only.

Is there warm water on the ship?

Electricity and water are available on the ships but in a limited capacity. All the ships have a generator for electricity that makes a certain level of noise, so it’s not turned on during the night or while the vessel is docked in some peaceful bay. Tanks for water have capacities that match numbers of cabins, actually numbers of beds on a vessel, so there is always enough water for everyone, even in cases if the tank isn’t filled each day, assuming that everyone uses water rationally. Ships also have a central heater that ensures warm water.

Are there some security measures on the ship?

All the ships are equipped with life-saving boats and life jackets which can be found under the beds in cabins or in marker wardrobe on the deck or in the salon. If you are non – swimmer, we kindly ask you to inform us and the captain earlier. During your stay on the vessel you need to pay attention on following: steps are much tighter and sharper and it requires alert while coming down or going up; deck can be extremely slippery during rain or morning humidity, so it’s necessary while you are walking on the ship to hold the fence with one hand; it is strictly forbidden to climb on foremast, jumping off the deck during the sail nor going far away from the ship during swim pauses. It’s also important to realize that the wood is alive material that assembles during high temperatures and it is possible that water reaches cabins because of the rain or bad weather, so you should close windows during bad weather and in cabins below deck also during the sail. We have to alert you on next: during high season, harbors can be very crowded and often ships are docked next to each other, so we kindly ask you to be very careful while you are going from one vessel to another.
