Tom and family chartered Kadena in September 2016:
Sasha, just checking in to tell you we are having the BEST time. We knew it would be magical but the trip has surpassed all expectations.
Many thanks!TomMindy and family chartered Kadena in July 2015:
Just back from the most wonderful week on Kadena. All adults finding it very difficult to get back into “work” mode! So spoiling – we were looked after so well, and spent the days parked up in idyllic bays with few other yachts around and the young adored it, as did the grown-ups. Wonderful weather and charming crew…… Didn’t want to come home!
Alistair and family (from New Zealand) chartered Kadena in July 2014:
‘Dear Elena and Sasha,
We arrived back yesterday after 40 hours from hotel to home and I have managed to spend 3 weeks in Europe answering
1 phone call and refusing to check any emails for the entire journey!!! So much more time …..
Now to the feedback. I guess the starting point is to go to the end when we finally disembarked at Dubrovnik.
A few shed a tear and for those that didn’t there were certainly tears in their eyes. It was the end of 7 days
which none of us will forget. A trip of a lifetime. I just hope the crew enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed them.
If they didn’t they are certainly very good actors and huggers!!
THE CREW of Kuzman, Carlos, Ivan and Vlado were fantastic. They were unobtrusive but inclusive and nothing was
ever a trouble. They were particularly good with the 3 little kids engaging with them, making them laugh and having
fun in the activities yet we were always aware the Captain had passenger safety at the top of his mind.
Nothing was ever a trouble.
KADENA. Better than anticipated and our anticipation was high. Very clean on boarding and maintained that way through
the week. They had a few troubles with the air conditioning so it didn’t operate properly at times but these things happen.
So 10 out of 10 for Kadena and without the air conditioning hiccup would have been 11 out of 10!!
Food. Vlado is a genius. The food on the boat was better than anything on shore. There was not one bad meal in a week
and each day we were surprised at the next culinary masterpiece he produced from his “hovel”.
Itinerary. We now understand that there can’t be a certainty of itinerary. With the weather in the seas being a
bit rough you need to go where the Captain says is safe. We were lucky enough to get stuck moored in Korchova for 2 nights!! Otherwise we were so lucky to have private moorings where we could enjoy the peace and beauty and swim. If I was being picky the trip to the monastery at Miljet was probably the least best experience but I am being picky.
Overall a 10 out of 10.
ADRIATIC HOLIDAYS.You have been very professional in your dealings and ever so helpful to all my picky questions and
requests. Again I would be more than happy to recommend yourselves as I would Kadena.
Just a couple of thoughts. Maybe explain to people that their itinerary will need to be a little flexible but the
Captain will always ensure you see the “gems”.
I am glad I ordered in our own wine as the Croatian red wines were fine but we struggled with the white wines in Split
and Dubrovnik. It did add to our enjoyment to be able to recognise Vlado’s cuisine with the wines we took and
the champagne we consumed in anticipation.
So you also get a 10 out of 10.
And those receiving this email will know I am a hard marker. The last time anyone got 10 out of 10 was when
I marked my own exam paper!!
So last years trip of a lifetime now becomes our second best trip of a lifetime.
Important notes and information about ports/routes:
In Croatian ports, the mooring rule is: ‘first come first served’. However, a bigger boat has priority over a smaller boat and smaller boats are expected to give their space in the high season, if needed. Ports can not be pre-booked. In ports, gulets sometimes have to raft up along side of eachother.
It is different in the marinas (such as http://www.aci-club.hr ) where all boats have their own space, electricity and water.
A gulet can spend a night at anchor only if the weather conditions are good. The Captain has to make that decision for the safety reasons of the passengers and the boat. Currents in the Adriatic are relatively weak but there is a constant circulation under the influence of winds (this applies for the summer period too).
