Croatia National Parks. Princeza Diana. Sept 30th 2018

5 Oct 2018

Steve and Shelly

We have done other cycle and boat tours, being quite active this one looked appealing with just about the right amount of cycling and visiting a scenic country. However the ‘First Class’ boat was sadly not. Our cabin, number 2, was small, with a double bed and two bunk beds, this greatly restricted the available space. It gave it the appearance of a backpacker’s hostel not a good hotel room as the holiday descriptions like to portray. The double bed was over a metre above the floor which made it really awkward to get in to and out of, especially as we are in our sixties. Available space to dress etc. was minimal. There was plenty of storage space and the bathroom was good. It was clean. You spend a lot of time on the boat. The cycling was not what we expected, it being very limited. We had weather problems which restricted the places we could go but we were getting a bit stir crazy. There is not much to do if the weather is not too good so you look forward to good cycling. With this tour you get lunch, most thought it a waste of time. You had to get back to the boat which meant that most of the cycling was just a couple of hours a day, mostly mornings and for us one afternoon. Once you leave the coastline on the bikes the scenery is not that interesting certainly on the routes we went on.. We were enforced to stay in Zadar for two days, it is not a big town. The food on board was OK, it is waiter service. There are two nights you have to find places to eat. The biggest disappointment for us was the cabin, we know you cannot trust the photos in brochures, but it was not the luxury we were led to expect. Certainly not for the price you pay. We will not be doing this one again, and sadly, have been left with a feeling of being ripped off.
