This Croatia trip sold out so fast for Summer 2023, we are repeating it again for Summer 2024.
The opportunity to book the entire 36-passenger yacht-cruiser for this amazing Croatia tour (7 day cruise within a 12 day trip) is so special and unique, that we are offering it again for 2024 so that more of our members and school district employees, friends and family can enjoy this incredible international travel experience. This ship has 18 double occupancy cabins. Our plan is to once again fill this yacht with 100% Educator Tour passengers.
Built in 2020, with a 4-1 guest-crew ratio, on-board Jacuzzi, air conditioned rooms with satellite TV, en-suites and ample storage, the MS San Spirito or MS Invictus (shown above) is a once-in-a-lifetime way to explore the coast of Croatia for seven of the 12 days!
Reservation form and initial deposit is due now to reserve your spot. Maximum of 36 passengers on this yacht, in total. Final payment will be due Spring 2024.

Travel Insurance: Educator Tours have low cost trip insurance available for purchase. In 2020 and 2021, every Educator Tour traveler received a 100% refund for their reservation fee, including the cost of the trip insurance, when the trips were canceled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Trip Insurance is comprehensive, with a full refund available for literally any reason, until the day before departure.
Who Can Travel With Us:
All Educator Tours are open to the general public. East County Schools
FCU has been the corporate sponsor of this trip since its inception and
as such, the trip is largely comprised of members of the East County
education community, working and retired, and their friends and
families. There is so much FUN on these trips, and such a connection
amongst travelers, that many travelers attend year after year. Most
years, our trip has an optional side tour to an educational facility in
that area, which contributes to making them a work expense for some.
