Lavishly designed with a modern feel, the M/V Ave Maria is sister ship to the fantastic M/V Infinity. This superb vessel is amongst an elite number of ships which boast upper deck cabins with private balconies. Classified as a Deluxe Superior, the Ave Maria enjoyed her maiden voyage in 2018, and quickly sold out for the season. 49m long and 8.8m wide, the M/V Ave Maria has a cruising speed of 8 nautical miles. Life on-board is relaxed and very in-formal, ensuring your time is spent making the most of the amazing coastline, islands and waters of Croatia.
Located over three decks, all 19 en-suite (shower) cabins have been classically designed in calming hues and a pop of colour. Thought has been given to space and ultimate comfort without compromise. Upper deck cabins (9 cabins) are accessed internally, and offer a full length glass door, opening to a small private balcony. Two main deck cabins are accessed straight off the deck and have two large oval windows. Lower deck cabins (8 cabins) are accessed internally with opening portholes. Each cabin accommodates a desk, wardrobe, night stand, small stool, sofa, and fixed hairdryer. Other facilities are air-con, safe deposit box, fire-alarm, and audio system for announcements by the captain or tour director.
Offering modern facilities expected of this calibre of vessel, the M/V Ave Maria has an abundance of space and lavish living areas….the main deck dining room is fully air-conditioned with an indoor bar and lounge area with LCD Television, plus a corner buffet breakfast table. There are plenty of lounging areas including comfy seating on the rear of the main deck, and a huge top deck which is partially shaded offering deck-beds for all passengers with mini pool hot tub. To make the most of every swimming opportunity there is a platform with steps and a ladder for easy access to the water, and also two outdoor showers, and two deck lavatories.
Food and drink:
Your ‘mixed half board’ basis includes welcome cocktail, dinner on arrival, breakfast daily, 6 lunches with a complementary drink, captains dinner, 1ltr bottle of cabin water daily. This type of mixed arrangement offers the best of both worlds; to enjoy the fayre on-board, and also time to sample local restaurants and eateries, making the most of the slow paced days and evenings of the Adriatic coastline and islands. Drinks not included within the package can be purchased from the bar located in the salon.
