    Our Cruise Ship

    MS My Wish

    A brand-new deluxe ship for the 2020 cruising season, the MS My Wish offers a luxurious, intimate sailing experience for exploring some of the best Croatia has to offer from its magnificent medieval cities to gem-like islands. Her smaller, yacht-like size means she can navigate narrow waterways and make berth in ports that larger vessels can’t – with a smaller passenger-to-crew ratio and experienced, friendly staff, a highly personal excursion with exceptional service is just about guaranteed.
