Although we also visited Athens and Santorini, the highlight of the entire trip for all of us was the week on the MS Splendid. We had a particularly nice bunch of fellow travellers on board, including two families with teenage/young adult kids. The young ones befriended each other quickly, and explored the nightlife in each port of call with a vengeance. 16 of the 38 pax were Aussies, and there were 4 Kiwis. Others included a Swiss couple, 2 English couples, some Belgians, a FedEx pilot and his wife from the US and even one Croatian couple and their daughter. A multi-national team indeed! The Captain and the crew were terrific, and the whole week went very smoothly indeed. My 18 year old son is now Facebook friends with the captain’s son, the cruise manager and at least four of the fellow passengers. The meals were great, and it was nice not to have to think about what to eat – it all just happened! The crew were very accommodating and on a few occasions kept the bar open later than they needed to, and were a bit flexible with breakfast times too. Swimming off the back of the boat was a highlight, and lots of fun. Our stops along the way were always interesting, and we enjoyed the freedom to do our own thing for dinner each night.
We have just returned from the 8 day cruise with two friends and we would tell others that we had a great time, the staff were great and it was the fantastic way to Croatia. The boat is excellent, very spacious and the cabins well appointed, the bathroom is huge for a boat of this size. The food is average, standard fare for breakfast and three course lunches which might not suit everyone. The ability to amble through the towns and villages and choose your own dinner option suited everyone. We had people from Australia, UK, NZ, many parts of Europe and South America and all those we spoke to would agree it was a good week. We were pleased with the MS Splendid and would recommend it to others.
This is a grand little ship with excellent crew. Ana was especially helpful. Enjoyed vegeterian meals – asked after I had boarded. This week surpassed my highest expections. Thank you!
This cruise is absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend Apolon boat and this cruise company. It is stunning and honestly the best way for us to see Croatia. Superb!
We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The ship is in very good condition and we always feel proud to belong to Captain Bota. The crew have made the cruise experience very enjoyable. We have been on large cruise liners before and found this style of cruising much more fun and far more interesting because the cruise style is more personal and you take us into more ports than the large boats. We will recommend Bota to everyone. Thank you for making our cruise so great.

Best holiday ever!!!! Thanks to the crew (and guests) of the Kleopatra in July 2015!!!!! Everyone needs to go on this incredible boat and sail the beautiful waters of Ambassador Travel!!! Special thanks to Maja Maria Maksic and Nikola Cendo who are fabulous hosts!
Loved the Captain Bota, beautiful brand new, well appointed boat. Luxury appointments, aircon, flat screen tv. Very spacious cabin with bathroom, bigger than some hotels we have stayed.
