Constructed in 2015 using the finest materials, obviously very modern and specially designed to sail in Croatian waters and operated by a family of seafarers of three generations, there is an unmistakable sense of exclusivity about a yacht cruiser, and MV Corona displays this quality in abundance.
You are immediately struck by the vessel’s intimate feel, yet there is no doubting her four-star pedigree: the build quality, tasteful decor and furnishings, the immaculate teak decking and the convenient layout are all designed to make your cruise memorable – for all the right reasons! Although, unlike traditional cruise ships, the MV Corona at 44 metres is easily small enough to berth at the quayside in some of the Mediterranean’s most charming little ports, there is ample deck space and spacious, contemporary public areas, all finished with quality fabrics, warm wooden panelling and those classy little touches one always appreciates!
Category A+ cabins, situated on Main, Salon and Sun Decks, are approx 15 m2, with a double bed and have two opening windows. Individually controlled air-conditioning, bathroom with shower & WC, safe, hairdryer, desk and chair.

The Sun Deck up top has plenty of loungers and areas to relax, ideal to enjoy the cooling sea breezes, absorb the panoramic views and appreciate the attentive bar service. Beneath it is the Salon Deck, the spacious teak-panelled, air-conditioned restaurant and fully stocked bar. Breakfast features hot and cold options and daily lunch consists of well prepared, local dishes featuring salads to hot Mediterranean specialities, meats and fish. You may prefer to dine al fresco in the shaded ‘Aft’ area, enjoying that magical ambience that good food enjoyed in the open air brings. You will enjoy the ‘Captain’s Dinner’, a celebration of Croatian and Mediterranean cuisine featuring food from throughout the Adriatic. On the remainder of the evenings you are free to dine where you wish in the delightful ports we visit.
All decks also provide tastefully furnished accommodation: well-appointed outside cabins, with elegant teak flooring, luxurious double or twin beds and contemporary bathroom fittings. Cabins are a minimum size of 14 square metres (151 square feet) all featuring individually controlled air-conditioning, bathroom with shower & WC, safe, hairdryer, desk and chair.
