About us

Dear Friends / our dear Customers,

We are Delecta Ltd. / DELECTA CRUISES, a cruise/tour operator from Istria, Croatia and your faithful destination focused partner. We officially started our business back in 2006 under the name Delecta Cruises / Terra Magica Travel, thus being a pioneer in small ship cruising in Croatia. Ever since, as true experts for the region where we live and conduct our business, through quick responses and very personal approach we have made available to our ever demanding clients a vast selection of cruise related services.

Our domestic cruises are growing in popularity among all those who want to experience the sights close up which is something that is not possible to experience while cruising along the Adriatic coast on large ships. Also, our small ships provide a “home away from home atmosphere” and are designed to enter all the tiny ports of call, hidden bays and medieval small towns on the sparkling Croatian coast.

Whether you are art, culture and nature lovers, hardened adventure travellers, gastronomic connoisseur or romantic couples the awesome Delecta cruises and tours designed for groups and individuals are sure to be a winner.

Having a privilege to provide you our services and having happy and repeat customers in mind we thus take a pride in highlighting the very essence of the “Mediterranean As It Once Was”.

We are keen to serve you!

Zlatko Jovandic

Hi Zlatko, we made it home safe and sound. Joe and I will send you a more detailed feedback in the next few days, but in short, this was a trip our clients will remember for a long time. For many it was their best trip ever. Thank you for all of the seamless arrangements as we travelled through your beautiful country. Best regards

Review by: Marina S

Thank you very much Zlatko. We had a fabulous week – Croatia is beautiful and we enjoyed seeing the coastline and swimming in the sea. Casablanca is a very special boat and the crew were fantastic.

Review by: Mike C

Hi Zlatko, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip on the Mama Marija. The ship is beautiful and the places we visited were lovely. The cruise director Ana was the perfect host and she helped everything run smoothly. The crew also worked hard to ensure we all had a memorable holiday. If we had one disappointment it would have to be that the food was not up to our expectations, or others , for the price paid. Thank you for all your assistance. Regards Mike and Suzanne

Review by: David

We’ve been home a few days now and on behalf of my family and friends I want to say a big THANK YOU to you for all your help in making our Cruise on Krila 7 possible. We had a wonderful time and the weather was on our side too! The boat was even better than expected and the Captain, crew and cook all lovely people. By the end of the week we had all become good friends and it was very sad when we had to disembark! Thanks again for everything. All best wishes

We did Bordeaux this past Spring, and are doing a Cruise on the Rhine/Mosel in 2019 with 120+ travelers, but many of our people are still saying last year’s Croatia trip was the best!! Hope all is well with you! Take care, and look forward to hearing from you! Thanks Zlatko!
