Q: What time does the boat depart from Split on day 1 (Saturday)?
A: Check-in is from 11.30am to 12.30pm and we then aim for the boat to then depart around 1.00pm.
Q: What time does the trip finish?
A: The boat docks back into Split on Friday afternoon and then overnights in Split. Breakfast is then from 7.30am on the Saturday and check-out must then be completed by 9am.
Q: What are the sleeping arrangements in the cabins?
A: Most of our cabins can be suited to couples who would prefer a double, or twin beds (2 separate beds) for friends who don't wish to share a bed. Please let us know your preference in advance - we can't always match your preference but we try to as best we can according to the configuration of travellers.
Q: Why doesn't the 7th July ULTRA Return stay in Split for 8th July Ultra as well?
A: If the boat stayed 2 nights in Split then there would not be enough time for the boat to get down to Dubrovnik and back for the rest of the sail, and Dubrovnik is not to be missed! So the 7th July cruise covers the Saturday of the festival. You can always get into Split a day before the sail, stay in a hotel/hostel and do the Friday night (6th July) at Ultra as well.
Q: What about triple cabins, for 3 friends in one cabin?
A: Three friends can share one cabin - 1 person in a separate bed and 2 in a double bed. There is a 5% discount on each passenger's space for triple-sharing.
Q: What is the arrangement for solo travellers?
A: Solo travellers would have to share a cabin with another solo traveller or third person from another group. We try to match people up according to gender, but this is not always possible due to passenger configurations. There is always the option of a single supplement as well (see below).
Q: If I don't want to share my cabin, can I pay a single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a single supplement. Our single supplement is 50% extra. You must book your single cabin in advance.
Q: What are the bathroom arrangements?
A: Every cabin has its own ensuite bathroom as standard!
Q: What is the difference between above deck and below deck cabins?
A: Above deck is on the main deck and lower deck is in the hull of the boat. There are advantages and disadvantages to both - lower deck cabins are often cooler and more peaceful at night as you do not have other passengers walking past your cabin as much as the above deck cabins. Above deck cabins are brighter with more natural ventilation and most open out onto the sea.
Q: What food is included?
A: You will have 2 meals everyday which consists of a continental breakfast (bread, spreads, with varieties of fruit, yoghurt, sausages etc throughout the week), and 3-course lunch (soup to start, followed by meat/fish/pasta/rice dish and a dessert).
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: Please tell us about your special dietary requirements before your cruise starts and our onboard cook will do their best to cater for them.
Q: Can I bring my own food and drink on board?
A: You can't bring your own food on board, apart from for special dietary requirements. This also applied to drink: drinks are not allowed to be brought on board (including water) as the boat runs its own bar (on a tab system).
Q:Can I pay for my bar tab by credit card?
A: Our boats do not have card facilities onboard. All payments for your bar tab can be made only by cash locally on your last day before you check out of the boat. The cash payment can be done in Croatian Kuna, Euro, or a mixture of the two.
Q:How many people will be on my boat?
A: Between 25 to 38 passengers, with 3 or 4 crew members.
Q:What nationalities and ages are on board?
A: Most of our guests are aged between 18 and 39, with the majority falling in the twenties and early thirties bracket. They are from English-speaking countries (UK, Ireland, Australia, NZ, South Africa, Canada, USA), EU countries (mostly Western Europe) and others such as Israel and Brazil.
Q:What if I miss, or am going to be late for the boat's departure?
A: Please let us know as soon as you can and we will advise you on where to catch up with the boat.
Q:How much spending money should I bring?
A: Personal spending money amounts obviously var from person to person but as a general rule around Euro 25 to Euro 30 per day can cover additional meals and optional entrances.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there any power sockets on board?
A: Our boats have power sockets in the cabins and in the salon area. They are European 2-pin sockets so don't forget your adaptors if you need them!
