Croatia - 2015

Croatia – April 2015 – Preference Vacations


Perilously positioned between Central Europe and the Balkans, Croatia is a fabulous amalgam of diverse cultures, medieval and modern metropolises, and endless coastlines on the island-studded Adriatic Sea.

“Croatia is a gorgeous country full of history and lovely walled cities, many of them small. If you like small ship cruising, it’s a great place to see that way because you just walk off the ship and you can go by foot pretty much anywhere. The food and wine are also excellent and they make many of their own wines specially for the tourism market. I will go back for sure!”

- Gail Brewer, Regent Mall, Fredericton, NB

“Croatia has charming port towns, unspoiled islands, pristine beaches, vineyards and olive orchards and so much more. The Katarina Line boats are an excellent choice for travelling the Dalmation Coast. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the onboard breakfasts and lunches were plentiful and delicious. I highly recommend it!”

Virginia McIntosh, Napanee, ON

“The fam was out of this world! Croatia is an amazing country with magnificent scenery, people, food and vino. Preference Vacations even arranged to give us a break from the high seas and treated us to a wine-tasting at a local winery. My favourite port of call was Hvar for its beautiful panoramic views from the fortress. ”

Lois Follett, Manager, Marystown, NL

“Loved Croatia! We travelled for eight days with Katarina Line. Excellent ships with fantastic staff, great food, a large sundeck with areas to relax, exercise, sunbathe and enjoy the stunning views of Croatia’s coastline and islands.”

Marlene Dube, Park Lane, Halifax, NS

“Wow, what a way to see Croatia! The cruise ship – more like a yacht – was fabulous, with only 18 cabins, making it such a personal experience. We got to see Croatia in a way the large ships can’t because we were able to get into more interesting out-of-the-way places.”

Debbie (McGray) Ross, Manager, Yarmouth, NS
