Ave Maria Review

AdventureSmith Explorations’ Ave Maria review includes a detailed description of the small ship including deck plans and a photo gallery. Our experts have been aboard nearly every first-class vessel in the Mediterranean. Please read our Ave Maria review below then contact our Croatia cruise experts to compare the Ave Maria with other small cruise ships and yachts offering Mediterranean small ship cruises and Croatia cruises.

Choose the M/V Ave Maria if you are seeking a spacious sun deck to lounge or soak in a hot tub while you effortlessly sail the Croatian coastline. She is part of a newly built fleet of sleek, modern yachts that are elegant enough to make your vacation feel upscale but affordable enough that you can add a European land package to your cruise.

Common Areas Aboard Ave Maria

The Main Deck dining room is fully air-conditioned and can accommodate all passengers at once, yet offers a great degree of privacy for each guest. The restaurant includes a bar area with LCD TV, and a corner table for buffet breakfast. A portion of the dining area extends outdoors as a lounge area, offering sweeping panoramic views of the surroundings. Free WiFi is available.

The sundeck lounge spans the entire top of the ship (2,690 square feet) and is partially shaded with comfortable deck beds to relax and access to the hot tub. The covered part of the upper deck is spacious enough to accommodate all passengers and has tables, chairs and public restroom.
