Is Azamara providing shuttles from ship into city/town?

We are provisionally booked on a cruise to Croatia later this year. At Christmas we cruised with AZ around the Canaries but they did not provide any shuttles from ship to town. This was a big problem for us as my OH has mobility issues but does not need a wheelchair - he just can't walk far. AZ cited covid as the reason for no shuttles although they didn't seem to have any such concerns with their tours. Most of the time we just want to explore the port/town rather than go on a tour but, we need to know if there will be shuttles. Has anyone any recent experiences or information please?

Which ports are you visiting @mumcat?
We had shuttle into Dubrovnik whilst docked there, if tendered you’ll be dropped in the centre. You'll not need a shuttle in either Zadar or Kotor, both are very easily accessed.

Thanks for that information. We are going to Opatija, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik, Hvar and Sibenik. Our TA just spoke to AZ who said that they don't know at the moment, the situations is fluid. It sounds as though we would be ok even if they don't provide shuttles.

I was just in several of these ports (with another cruise line) but ...

Zadar: as mentioned earlier the dock is right in town

Split -- also right in town

Hvar -- tenders will leave you right in town

Durbrovnik -- we tendered right to town, I didn't know there was another port area so defer to those who have experience.

 

I can't speak to your other ports.

Dubrovnik   We have tendered right by the old town previously.  But on our April cruise, due to high winds, we docked in the cruise port area and shuttle busses were provided by Azamara into the old town.
