MS Stella Maris Overview
This superior 161-foot-long and 26-foot wide vessel was designed to reach those smaller, out of the way ports, providing a more intimate cruise with the ability to reach more of Croatia’s highlights. With a maximum of 36 guests, every passenger is made to feel like VIP. The ship features well-equipped, spacious cabins and common areas with amenities like an expansive sun deck with loungers for all, and a swimming platform for rejuvenating dips in the Adriatic.
There are 18 twin, double and triple cabins spread across the main and lower decks, all of which are en-suite, air-conditioned and sound-proofed for your comfort. Each one includes the necessities like lifejackets and an internal communication system, so you won’t miss any announcements by the captain and tour director, as well as an LCD satellite TV, nightstand, wardrobe, bathrobes and slippers. Private bathrooms include a toilet, shower, sink and hairdryer.
Facilities & Public Areas
You’ll find plenty of space to enjoy relaxing or socializing outside of your comfortable cabin, indoors and out. On the main deck is a large air-conditioned restaurant with a bar and an LCD TV as well as a covered outdoor lounge with cushy sofas. On the upper deck you’ll find a large sundeck where you can enjoy soaking up the sunshine and salty sea air while surrounded by spectacular Adriatic scenery. It also includes a swimming platform with a ladder for taking advantage of swim stops along with two outdoor showers for rinsing off afterwards. Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the ship, making it easy to share all those fantastic photos you’re sure to take.
Expect to enjoy some wonderful gastronomic delights throughout the cruise, onboard and off. Delicious, freshly-prepared meals are served on a half-board basis, including a tasty buffet breakfast every morning. Most itineraries include several multicourse lunches and dinners like a lavish captain’s dinner with live entertainment, allowing for some meals to be enjoyed at local eateries for the chance to sample the authentic flavors of Croatia. Dining is enjoyed in a relaxed, casual environment with no dress code. Complimentary fresh fruit and bottled water are provided daily and the bar offers a selection of beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks for purchase.
