ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Anyone going on the May 6th trip might want to express concern to RS about the change in ship from the Vita to the Vapor. The differences in amenities & conditions is quite disturbing.
Guy Archer Apr 13, 2015 at 09:15 PM

What are the differences in amenities and conditions?
Kathleen East Apr 16, 2015 at 11:23 AM

Compare the ships on their websites below. The photos tell the story. MS Vita - http://www.cruise.croatia-istria.com/ship/63/ MS Vapor - http://www.katarina-line.com/ships/a-plus-category-ships/item/vapor.html

Is there anyone starting on May 28, 2015, who would like to chat? We're a couple from Honolulu looking forward to our first Road Scholar trip in lovely Dalmatia.
Carol Cissel Apr 03, 2015 at 11:08 AM

I'll be on the same trip, a Road Scholar newbie. I lived in Honolulu (East Honolulu, Hawaii Kai) from 1980-1992. I'm looking forward to meeting you. Carol
Doris Clevenger Apr 13, 2015 at 10:06 PM

How many ships does RS have on this cruise? Are they all small, like the Barbara. Our amenities, food, crew were fabulous. doris clevenger

We are excited to join the group who will take this trip at the end of May-first week of June on the Vita. If you have made this voyage during the first week of June, we would love to hear from you, especially about the temperature. How warm are the days, and how cool are the evenings?

Doris Clevenger Mar 15, 2015 at 12:18 PM

I did this trip in early May 2014, on the ship Barbara. I was on an emotional high the entire time. Our guide, Alan, couldn't have been more attentive to our requests. The ship experience was a beautiful event in my life due to captain and crew. The extension to Nat'l park and Zagreb were very worthwhile. Zagreb is a world class capital; every day there was filled!

Susan Colby Mar 14, 2015 at 02:23 PM

Yes, Cynthia, it's a terrific trip. I wrote a review when I got back and I'm still on cloud nine when I think of it. Even if the weather is not perfect, there is so much to enjoy!

Susan Colby Mar 13, 2015 at 05:18 PM

Cynthia, I was there Oct.11-24, 2014 and it was perfect. We could swim in the Adriatic. But we may have just been lucky. They had a particularly cool and rainy spring and summer last year and we just happened to hit it during a lovely Oct.
cynthia thomas Mar 13, 2015 at 07:05 PM

Thank you. Sounds like you enjoyed the trip

And an added bonus of going in Oct is that the tourist season is winding down so places are not so crowded. The ship, Futura, was fantastic as was the gourmet food served aboard. Overall a fabulous trip!
Mary Ann L Mar 14, 2015 at 06:32 PM

Sorry, the messae board seems to be a little messed up.In my first comment (that doesnt appear here) I said that I was on the same tour as Susan and I aree with everything she said.

cynthia thomas Mar 13, 2015 at 10:22 AM

There are many option dates. What time of the year is best for this trip?
