Company Expands Fleet and Customizable Land Tour Options to Meet Increasing Demand For Travel To Croatia

(TRAVPR.COM) September 21st, 2018 - USA - Voted “Best Croatian DMC” in 2016 by the Croatian National Tourist Board, award-winning Katarina Line has announced its Fall 2018 trade show schedule. It features travel shows in Europe, including London and the Netherlands, as well as in Africa.  Katarina Line will also be visiting partners in Australia and New Zealand, which represent an important part of their business. The expanded schedule reflects the increasing popularity of the company’s small ship cruises and customizable land tours as Croatia tourism continues to grow.

According to Managing Director Daniel Hauptfeld, the shows offer a valuable opportunity to meet one-on-one with industry partners and to educate new agents on selling Croatia.  With travel agents representing more than 98 per cent of their business, the company offers commissions that are among the highest in the industry.

“Travelers from around the world are discovering the unique appeal of small ship cruising in the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea,” said Hauptfeld.  “We’re also seeing more groups booking our wide range of customizable land tours that reveal Croatia’s historic cities, cultural heritage, and gastronomic tradition. They are rediscovering our stunning natural attractions, such as Plitviče Lakes National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.”

Katarina Line can schedule meetings at the booth as well as before and after the trade shows.  Representatives can also visit agents' office for a private presentation and to train its staff.  Appointments can be made in advance by contacting Katarina Line at or visiting
