      Katarina Cruises

      by HelenNZ Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 9:24 AM

      In June 2007 my husband and I enjoyed a cruise with the Katarina Line on one of their converted fishing boats. I have tried to make bookings for September 2010 and have emailed the company both through their website and also to the person I was dealing with in 07. I have sent about four emails but have not received any reply. The email I sent to the person was receipted as received but no response. Are they still in business? Have they gone under because of the recession? As we were cruising on the southern coast including Dubrovnic we want to explore the northern area this time. If Katarina Line are no longer doing these cruises we would be interested to learn of any other line which does similar trips - the main criteria for us is that it is a smaller cruise boat with up to say forty passengers. Thanking you in advance.

      Hello. I am seeking recommendations on how to travel from Sicily to Opatija in April. I understand there is a ferry from Bari (Italy) to Rijeka. Would that be a fun and efficient choice, assuming I could get to Bari with bus or train or something? Perhaps train is better and less disruptive/more direct? Thank you.

      Apartment / Studio in centre of Opatija

      by Bonneys Online Now Jun 10, 2006 at 11:19 PM

      My husband and I want a Self-Catering apartment in the centre/lungomare district of Opatija. Not bothered about facilites (we don't use them anyway!) but MUST have a private balcony or terrace. We prefer a higher floor, not ground-floor.
      We arrive on the 19th August 2006 and stay for 10 nights, leaving on the 29th.
      (Don't suggest the Villa Marija as they are unable to accommodate us until the 20th which isn't any good for us).
      Also, can anyone advise us the best way (cheapest!) to get from Rijeka Airport on Krk to Opatija? Any general Public Transport advice is welcome too.
      Thanks in advance for anyone who is able to offer advice. We look forward to your replies flooding in!!

      I have heard there is a bus one can take from Venice to Opatija without transferring. It seems the bus might originate from Padua, go through Venice and Opatija then end up at some other Istria city. Has anyone heard of this? If so, where can I find the cost, schedule and other particulars. Thank you very much.
