Some things to note

Some things to note icon
  • The Adratic cruise is not a private charter and is shared with non Bunnik passengers. Due to the limited space for docking along many of the towns we visit, ships bank together when stopped. Therefore, in some cases, you may need to walk through other ships to enter and exit our cruise ship. The Adratic cruise featured on our tour operates between the cities of Split and Dubrovnik. The cruise itinerary can sometimes vary, but inclusions will remain the same. Depending on local conditions the captain reserves the right to change the itinerary. 
  • Make sure you carry small change, as public bathrooms cost anywhere up to a €1.50 to use. All restaurants and cafes will have restrooms, but you will need to purchase something from their menu.
  • Due to fluctuating weather conditions, our sightseeing on day 11 is subject to change.
  • Occasionally rough waves or high tide can obstruct access to the Blue Cave, which is unforeseeable until the morning of our scheduled visit on day 20. For this reason, entrance fees are not included and are to be paid on the spot.
