Small Cruise Ship Collection 8 day tour

I am planning to take this cruise tour Apr 13 2019. Has anyone used this company before and since it is mostly islands I will be visiting. Is Apr too early. Our dinners are off the ship. Will the restaurants be open.

Can't speak too much for the cruise line, but a couple general comments:

April is a bit early for the tourist season, and I would suspect that some places would be closed or just opening up, but if the cruise line is using that port, then there will be places to cater to you, just the selection may be a bit more limited, and the atmosphere may be a bit subdued.

Not sure which itinerary you have, but you still hit most of the larger towns (Split and Dubrovnik for sure), those and someplace like Korcula should be no issue, Hvar maybe a bit sleepier.

The water will be too cool for swimming, I would be ready for cool weather as well, rain I do not recall being much of an issue.

Your choice of restaurants on the islands maybe limited, as the season doesn't start until well into May. I have friends who own a place there and they don't head there before early May and they stay until the end of September.
