Under the Program details there is a vessel description and in the reviews there are comments about the ship and staff. Looking at these can Answer a lot of the questions being asked here.

ALAN PALAMARA Sep 22, 2014 at 04:28 PM

Can anyone provide more information/feed back on this vessel and the accommodations and food?Perhaps a website with more info on the vessel

ALAN PALAMARA Sep 22, 2014 at 04:25 PM

Does anyone have more information about the vessel or where I can find information on line?

Joan Aghevli Sep 22, 2014 at 03:13 PM

Has anyone a notion of how much money we will need on the trip, perhaps previous travelers to Croatia?
Donald Johnson Sep 22, 2014 at 07:46 PM

Everything is included ie: tours and tips. You'll need money if you want beverages on the ship (that needs cash, no credit cards are accepted. Some meals during excursions, the schedule describes which and souvenirs. The instructions are all listed on the internet and the papers sent to each participant.

Will be on the September 28 - October 9th trip begininning Dubrovnik ending in Split. Hearing mixed comments about wifi on boat - anyone know for sure if the Futura has wifi? Looking forward to the trip. Departing from JFK on September 27th!

Ann Stevens Sep 21, 2014 at 11:56 PM

My trip begins Oct 3 in Dubrovnik ending at Split. Oct 14 I am taking the extension to the national parks and Zagreb ending Oct 17.

Your Group Leader will assist you with changing money on the first or second full day of the program.

Airports and train stations will have a bank or change bureau where you can exchange American or Canadian dollars for the local currency. You will always get a better exchange rate at a bank or post office than at a shop or restaurant, so try to anticipate how much money you will need and change that amount when you are at a bank.

Before leaving home, consult a “currency converter” that can tell you the rates of exchange between the U.S. dollar and local currencies around the world. Search the Internet for “currency converter” to find numerous helpful sites. Many major metropolitan newspapers also publish such information.We are thrilled that you will be joining us!

Thank you. I am looking forward to my trip.

Susan Levy Sep 19, 2014 at 08:13 AM

Where do you exchange money ? I understand that Croatia does not accept Euros or $$. I am on the Oct 18 trip. Also, did the yacht have WiFI ?
Randy Hylkema Sep 19, 2014 at 12:59 PM

Hi Susan: As the group leader says, change your dollars for Kuna in the airport when you arrive in Croatia. And later, there are plenty of ATMs and banks at many of the ports-of-call. Restaurants will take credit cards too. As for WiFi, as I recall, the boat itself does not have wifi, but you can get wifi in many of the ports when you dock at night. It's a great trip, so have fun.
Susan Levy Sep 19, 2014 at 10:10 PM

Thank you Randy.
