This cruise emphasizes really the best of Montenegro. We have visited well known Sveti Stefan, Kotor, Budva, Perast, Tivat. Crew was the best and our guide was more than interesting. He entertained us the whole time and we had a blast hearing interesting and educational stories. Would love to take another cruise in the arrangement of Perfecta Travel.
Each day went smoothly and by the schedule. I liked the food on board, especially captain’s dinner. All the guests were relaxed, had loads of fun and see many beautiful places. This itinerary for the cruise is great and not at all tiring. All compliments to Perfecta Travel.
Great cruise with lots of interesting elements. Montenegro is a beautiful country and more and more people are there to discover its beauties. Crew was excellent and we had the best time ever. Already planning our next holiday and would love to try some of Croatian cruises as well!
This cruise was such nice experience with carefully made itinerary, nice staff and excellent tour guide. All meals were cooked fresh, with nice ingredients and were very tasty. Also, accommodation was comfortable and very clean. All elements deserve nothing but compliments.
