Q: What flights should we book?
A: Most of the people booking this tour will be travelling from Bristol or London so we strongly recommend booking the Saturday 8 June 2019 EASYJET flight that goes from Bristol Airport or London Gatwick to Split. These are the flights that the Guide will be meeting at Split Arrivals. You can then take the return flight the following Saturday, or choose to stay longer in Croatia if you wish. Please let us know if you plan to take any flights from other airports or if you wish to fly in a day or 2 before the cruise departure day.
Q: What time will the boat depart from Split on day 1 (Saturday)?
A: The boat will depart at around 12.30pm.
Q: Is the cruise fully guided?
A: Yes, you will have a Croatian/English-speaking tour leader to take you to the tennis centres and provide information about each destination and Croatia in general. By law, he/she can orientate you around every destination, but is not allowed to give you an in-depth guided walk around Old Towns such as in Korcula or Split.
Q: I am a solo traveller, can I pay a single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay single supplement - it is 50% of the cruise cost. You must also book your single cabin in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: Breakfasts and lunches are included every day. Dinners can be taken in each destination at local restaurants and one evening we offer an optional BBQ onboard (costs around 110 to 140 kuna).
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before the cruise starts and we can ensure that the meals are more suited to your requirements.
Q: What surface are the tennis courts?
A: They are all clay courts.
Q: How are the tennis sessions organised?
A: We will be organising the first two tennis sessions in the round-robin formats used in the David Lloyd clubs in Long Ashton and Westbury. These round robins suit players at an intermediate level. The third session will be proper 3-set doubles or singles sessions, organised according to abilities decided by the Guide. The fourth and final session will be a tournament, also in a round robin format.
Q: My partner or friend(s) want to come on the trip but they don't play tennis. Can they come?
A: Yes, they can - they are very welcome! This type of cruise is mainly sold as a cruise-only trip in Croatia anyway. There is so much to see and do when the others are playing tennis that it is the perfect trip for a tennis player + his/her partner or friends. The price would be £100 GBP LESS for non-tennis players.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go, as with any holiday.
Q: Are there towels provided?
A: You will be provided with bathroom towels at the start of the cruise but we recommend bringing your own beach towels.
