Due to the specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian harbours, cruise ships are moored side by side, making it necessary for clients to cross from one ship to another with gaps in between ships in order to get to the shore.
In such cases, clients need to take special care when crossing and do this at their own risk.
Crew assistance will be given to those requesting it.
Cruise not recommended for clients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
