How to Book

Have a look around our website using the Menus, or the keyword search feature on the home page. If you are looking for a particular ship name you can enter the ship name as the keyword.

When you find something you like, click ‘Hold an Option‘, Reserve now‘ or ‘Make an enquiry‘ for that product and send us your details. No payment will be taken yet, and we will email you with details before any payment is required.

We’ll then confirm availability (all cruises need to be manually double checked as the small ship cruises only have around 20 cabins on each ship, so the available cabins can change rapidly overnight), and then get back to you within 24 hours. Same goes for group tours with guaranteed departures, we’ll confirm availability and get back to you with a Provisional Booking. Please be patient, as we need to wait until the European business hours to hear back on your request, and they usually start work around 5pm Australian time, so often we cannot let you know until the following morning Australian time.

Once we’ve confirmed availability and held an option for you, we’ll then send you a Provisional Booking (with an expiry date noted), collect a deposit from you (or full payment for small bookings or if it’s within 65 days of start date) and confirm your booking with the local supplier. We will then email you again with a Booking Confirmation. Until this time, please do not make travel arrangements such as flights or ferries in case there has been a problem or the option lapsed if your payment has been delayed or some other small problem. Please check our full Terms and Conditions here.

Payment details are on your Provisional Booking email, and payment can be made securely online with credit card, or by EFT / direct deposit into our bank account. Please note that EFT deposit can take up to 3 working days to show in our account if you send from a small credit union or overseas. Please keep the Provisional Booking expiry date in mind when paying by EFT. If you pay and the option has expired and the product is no longer available and we cannot find a replacement product for you, we will refund you in full.

Our Island Hopping Tours (multi-day independent tours) and Excursions (day tours) are usually always available, so we can book those last minute for you, even just a few days ahead.

We can also take your booking over the phone or by email, and sometimes it’s best just to have a quick chat first to ensure that your expectations for your holiday match the reality of what is on offer.

Please call us on 1300 660 189 or (61) 2 9212 1507 (and please leave your EMAIL ADDRESS in the message if you are in a different time zone so that we can contact you), or email us at [email protected]. If you are not in Australia, please send us an email and ask us to call you, making a note of your available contact times as often we can’t tell your time zone from your phone number or email address. Please also type in the full number including the area code and country code and whether it’s a mobile number or landline. Thank you.

Our business hours generally are from Midday 12pm – 8pm Monday-Friday, and usually a flexible part of Saturdays. This allows us to work for a portion of both the Australian and Croatian business day, which means you can get your requests answered faster.

We mostly work in GMT+10 time zone, and though are hours can be varied in high season, often this means that some other time zones (particularly USA Eastern Time) are hard to connect with during both our respective business times. Please, send us an email so that we can communicate with you easily irrespective of time zones. Thank you.
