WAS: Saturday 03 June - 8-days
WE HAD THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME IN JUNE, SO WE'LL BE GOING AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER 2025 A small luxury motor-yacht accommodating a max of 36 guests in 18 cabins, with 7 crew - the perfect holiday!

By popular demand, after our 2015 and 2017 Croatian cruises, we ‘re going back the beautiful Dalmatian islands, so if you missed our previous ‘exclusive’ cruises  this is your chance to experience some luxury cruising with us on MV AVANGARD in 2023.
The ship will be exclusively for Solent Events clientele (if numbers permit), so it will feel just like cruising on our own super-yacht, with early June being an excellent time of the year to enjoy the sunshine and warm, turquoise waters. Go on, life’s too short not to treat yourself to a bit of affordable luxury!

Launched in early 2017, the MV Avangard is a sister ship to the MV Futura, featuring the latest state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. Belonging to the Deluxe Superior class of ships – the best in the Katarina Line fleet, it offers superior comfort and excellent service.
MV Avangard is just 50 metres long and 8 metres wide. At full occupancy it can accommodate 36 passengers in its 18 luxurious cabins. It honestly, looks and feels like a fancy yacht.  It is  spacious, light and open. 

Fully air-conditioned, with spacious en-suite cabins, you will love cruising into the small bays for swimming, tiny ports and towns for sight-seeing and experiencing delicious home-cooked food in the spacious dining room.

The ship has 4 decks so everyone can really spread out. There is one big open lounge/restaurant area which serves as the ships main social hub where you will always find someone  chatting or having a drink before lunch or dinner. This lounge is also used as the main restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served accommodating all 36 passengers at one sitting!

Just behind the lounge, a beautiful covered, outside seating area, offering sweeping panoramic views of the surroundings, features the longest couch, you’ll have ever seen – seating at least 30 people! The perfect spot for a drink from the lounge bar. Rest assured, light sun shades keep out the direct heat from the intensive sun rays, but you can still hear the sea and feel that ocean breeze to keep you cool. 

The southern islands feature some of the most popular cruise routes in Croatia, on one of  the most luxurious vessels available. The small ports and harbours on Croatia’s islands and coast limit the size of vessel that can enter, so vessels any larger cannot access most of the port we visit on this cruise, which means we can go where larger cruise ships cannot!

Our itinerary includes exciting gastronomical and sightseeing experiences throughout our cruise via the following route:

Split – Korčula- Mljet & Dubrovnik – Dubrovnik – Pelješac Peninsula – Hvar – Bol /Milna – Split
