I am writing to let you know that our cruise aboard the Princess Aloha was better than I could ever have imagined, and you can feel comfortable promoting this ship to anyone. The remarkable crew went all out to make is comfortable, and the accommodations were just that…very comfy. One thing that surprised me was that I imagines the busier ports would be noisy at night, but because our berths were on lower level we never heard a thing. The was a perfect mix of sea time, port time, tour time, swim time etc.
Was not expecting four course lunches. It was quite a bit of food for us, but I realize they have to meet a variety of needs.
Croatia is worth every praise it receives…what a beautiful land and people. I fell in love with Bol and enjoyed our time at Krka national park tremendously. Loved Dubrovnik and the Rixos Libertas was excellent and just a pretty 15 min walk to old city.
Thank you for your help. Ann Gonzales”
“My husband and I just booked the Unique Dalmatia cruise on Princess Aloha through Jauntee, and we were very impressed with the knowledge of your agents. Tom was extremely helpful and he thoroughly descried this new ship, the cruise itinerary, as well as each island and town that we are going to visit. He also helped us with the cruise extension prior to the cruise so we can see Zagreb, Lake Bled in Slovenia, Postojna Caves, Plitvice National Park and the northern part of the Croatian coast.
