1.0 WHICH PLACES, PORTS AND LOCATIONS DID YOU VISIT DURING YOUR CRUISE? WHICH ONES IMPRESSED YOU THE MOST?
Herceg Novi (departure port) – did not visit the city
Budva – a lively city with lots of nightlife. A little crowded but very fun.
Kotor – great old city with good walking areas and food. A walk up to the old fort was spectacular and good for the heart.
Cavtat – did not visit the city
Dubrovnik – as good as it gets. Definitely need 2 nights in this city.
2.0 YOUR OVERALL COMMENT & DESCRIPTION ON THE TRIP.
The captain and crew were excellent and spoke English.
All the requested food and supplies were on the gulet when we arrived.
The crew purchased additional food as needed.
The crew made itinerary changes during the trip to enhance the trip and maximize shore time as requested.
3.0 WHAT WERE THE MOST ENJOYABLE OR MEMORABLE PARTS OF YOUR TRIP?
Arriving and getting underway to the first port of call.
The crew/chef prepared a wonderful meal when we arrived in Budva.
Another amazing part of making port each day was the look on peoples faces as this 33-meter boat backed into a mooring slot under the careful hand of the captain and crew.
It’s not a $20 million dollar yacht, but it is incredibly beautiful and takes your breath away.
4.0 IF YOU COULD TAKE YOUR TRIP AGAIN, WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY?
We would have changed the itinerary to include islands in Croatia.
The ports of call in Montenegro are beautiful, but having a gulet for two or three islands in Croatia would be a better option.
5.0 HOW WOULD YOU COMPARE A GULET CRUISE HOLIDAY TO ANY OTHER TYPE OF HOLIDAYS YOU DID IN THE PAST? PROS AND CONS.
(hotels, sailing holidays, motor yacht charter, renting a villa…)
Having your kitchen and rooms with you at all times is a great way to travel to destinations that don’t require a lot of sailing time.
Being able to go and stop whenever makes for memorable times.
However, cabins and other comforts are quite small on a gulet.
