Croatia reviews

  • "Great journey - don't believe every review you read!! "

    Had a great trip to Ancona with SNAV Ferries. The boat left an hour late but that was OK as the views over Split were fantastic. We had a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine on board, both of which were lovely. We also booked a cabin which was spotlessly clean and adequate for an overnight sailing. I would recommend this ferry trip to anyone.

  • "Very enjoyable trip"

    We had a lovely crossing from Split to Ancona in July. The staff were nice, the cabin was clean. My only recommendation would be that staff actually help people getting their luggage up the ram and escalators. Elderly and young kids struggled, to pull very heavy suitcases up a wobbly ramp and 2 sets of narrow escalators.
