All I can say is that we had a 10:30 flight booked so we would get to our boat by 2:30 but it turned out we’d actually booked a 10:30 PM flight. With no other flights available we ended up taking a 6.5 hour bus ride from Zagreb to Split, waited for 3 hours, then a 2 hour ferry to meet up with the boat.
We discovered the error after we’d checked our bags - have you ever tried to get your suitcase back after it disappears down that conveyor belt?
I’ll spare you most of the details but needless to say this was accompanied with frantic phone calls, mad rushing and confusion, and a bit of stress (to say the least).
By 11 PM we’d met up with the boat, found our cabins, hopped into bed and started to relax.
Here’s the boat at night.
