Introducing M/S Mama Marija, the perfect choice for an unforgettable island-hopping cruise in Croatia. This luxury yacht offers state-of-the-art amenities, fully equipped air-conditioned cabins, a restaurant, bar, sun deck, rooftop Jacuzzi, and a swimming platform. With its small and powerful design, M/S Mama Marija can navigate narrow waterways, anchor in hidden bays, and dock in small Croatian island ports. Designed and constructed in Croatia, this family-run ship guarantees an enjoyable and authentic Croatian holiday experience.
Our fleet comprises a variety of motor vessels constructed from wood or steel, available in different sizes, shapes, and categories. These vessels have undergone renovations to adapt them for tourism, with some being over a hundred years old. Most of the steel or iron yachts we offer are either brand new or recently built.
While our vessels are sometimes referred to as sailing ships, their primary mode of propulsion is through engines. It’s worth noting that several of our steel boats do not feature masts and sails.
If you prioritize privacy, luxury, and comfort, we recommend considering vessels from the Premium Superior or Premium categories. For younger passengers or special interest groups comfortable with shared spaces and bathrooms, the Traditional Ensuite vessels are a suitable option. However, Traditional Ensuite vessels typically do not have air-conditioned cabins, and bunk beds are common.
The number of passengers per vessel varies, ranging from 20 to 40 individuals, depending on the size of the boat.
The cabins on our vessels in Croatia are equipped with standard Type F sockets, featuring two pins and grounding. These outlets are compatible with plug types C, E, and F, providing a power output of 16 A and 220 V. Some newer vessels may also include USB sockets.
Fishing equipment is not provided on the boat, but passengers are welcome to bring their own gear. Special permission for fishing is required from specialized agencies in harbors.
Snorkeling equipment may not always be available on the ship. It is recommended to bring your own gear if you plan to go snorkeling.
All vessels are equipped with life-saving boats and life jackets, stored in designated wardrobes on the deck, in the salon, or under beds in the cabins. Passengers who cannot swim should inform the crew and captain. Additional safety guidelines include caution while navigating staircases, holding onto railings on slippery decks, and refraining from prohibited activities like climbing the foremast or swimming too far from the vessel during swim breaks.
While the tap water on the ships is of good quality, it is not recommended for drinking. Water dispensers with reusable glasses are provided, and passengers are encouraged to bring their own refillable bottles.
The primary currency accepted on the ship and throughout Croatia is the Euro. It is advisable to exchange money at a bank or withdraw cash from ATMs. The local currency is required for onboard drinks and additional services. Credit card payments are accepted on Premium and Premium Superior vessels.
Tips are not included in the tour price and are discretionary. They are usually given to show appreciation for good service. If you choose to tip, it is recommended to use your own currency or Euro. Gratuities are equally distributed among all crew members.
During July and August, the sea temperature typically averages around 24.5°C, while the air temperature averages around 28°C. For spring and autumn departures, it is advisable to pack some warmer clothes for cooler evenings.
Cabins on Premium Superior and Premium ships offer either twin or double beds, and some can accommodate up to three people with an additional bed. However, bed availability is limited, and specific types cannot be guaranteed. Guest preferences and requests are considered during the cabin assignment process.
Cabins on Premium and Premium Superior ships have twin or double beds, with twin beds measuring approximately 90/100 cm x 190/200 cm and double beds measuring around 150/160 cm x 190/200 cm. Traditional Ensuite cabins often have bunk beds, but twin or double beds may also be available. Double beds in these cabins typically measure 130/140 cm x 190/200 cm, while bunk beds are about 80/90 cm x 190/200 cm in size.
The cabins are distributed on two levels: deck and lower deck. Deck cabins are located on the main or upper deck, providing direct access to the sea and better ventilation. Lower deck cabins are situated in the ship’s hull and may offer quieter surroundings as only passengers with lower deck cabins pass by. Lower deck cabins are also comfortable due to their location at sea level, which keeps them naturally cool. Lower deck cabins usually feature small portholes.
Lower deck cabins are located in the boat’s hull and typically have small portholes. However, Croatian law and vessel regulations require these portholes to be closed while sailing to prevent water from entering the cabin. The portholes can be opened when the boat is docked. On newer ships in the Premium Superior and Premium categories, the portholes are fixed and cannot be opened.
The frequency of cabin cleaning depends on the vessel category. On Premium Superior and Premium vessels, the cabins are cleaned daily, and fresh bed linen is provided upon arrival. Traditional Ensuite category vessels require passengers to keep their cabins clean, while the crew cleans commonly used toilets and bathrooms. Towels are provided, and cabin cleaning during the cruise can be requested for an additional fee.
Air conditioning is available in cabins on Premium Superior and Premium vessels, except during times with limited access to electricity. Traditional Ensuite cabins do not have air conditioning, but lower deck hallways and salons usually do. Air conditioning operates when the motor or generator is running, or when the vessel is connected to shore power while docked. In smaller fishing harbors without electricity, the air conditioning may be turned off to maintain a peaceful environment.
If you plan to sleep on the deck and stargaze, it is recommended to bring a sleeping bag. Removing mattresses, pillows, and sheets from the cabins is prohibited.
The boats have limited capacities for electricity and water. A generator is on board for generating electricity, but it is not operational during the night or in quiet bays to prevent noise pollution. The water tanks have sufficient capacity to match the number of cabins and beds, and they are always filled with enough water. The vessels are also equipped with central heating systems that provide hot water.
During the cruise, you can indulge in meals featuring typical Croatian cuisine. Premium Superior and Premium vessels offer a breakfast buffet, while Traditional Ensuite boats serve a continental breakfast. Lunch is a three-course meal with a salad bar and cheese plate on deluxe ships, while premium and traditional vessels serve a three-course lunch. Dinner is not included, allowing passengers to explore local restaurants.
The “captain’s dinner” is a weekly event hosted by the captain, creating an opportunity for guests and the crew to socialize. It is included in the deluxe and premium vessel categories. On Traditional Ensuite or Traditional vessels, guests can arrange and pay for the dinner during booking or at the event. The dress code for the “captain’s dinner” is Elegant/Smart Casual.
While our onboard kitchen has limited space, we strive to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. Please inform us of your dietary needs during the booking process, and our onboard chef will make arrangements to the best of their ability.
Bringing and consuming your own drinks on the ship is not allowed. However, various alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase from the ship’s salon, which functions as a restaurant, living room, and bar. If your preferred drink is not available at the moment, kindly notify the crew, and they will endeavor to procure it for you at the next stop.
The onboard bar accepts payments for drinks in Euros. At the end of the trip, guests receive a report showing the total amount spent on drinks, which can be settled during the checkout process. Credit card payments are also accepted on deluxe and premium vessels.
