A superb cruise in the Adriatic Sea taking in Croatia’s Coastline and islands. We start in the Pearl of the Adriatic – the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik before we head to some of Croatia’s finest islands and coastal ports on our small cruise ship that doubes as a ‘floating boutique hotel’. We can sample some fine Croatian cuisine, including the seafood and local wines in Ston, and the small restaurants and cafes that abound in the ports we will visit mostly feature local wines, cheese, olives and other delicacies. We will visit Mljet and Mljet National Park, where you can walk or cycle around the twin lakes and visit St Mary’s Monastery set on an island on a lake on an island. Korcula – a beautiful walled port and birthplace of Marco Polo and the outlying and less visited island of Vis, closed to the outside world until 1989, and the amazing Blue Cave on Bisevo. Before we reach Split we stop in the lively ‘jetset’ port of Hvar. Split, dominated by the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s palace, is a great placce to finish and try some of the many cafes and restaurants.
We spend most morning’s cruising and stopping in small bays for a swim, and most afternoon’s are left for exploring our destination and the evenings for exploring the restaurants and cafes of these lovely ports and towns.
