Share Article

Cruise Croatia along the Adriatic coast from Kvarner riviera through Dalmatia to Dubrovnik. Stop at medieval walled towns, orange-roofed fishing villages, vineyards, and pebbly white beaches or savor the classic Med scenery at anchor - selected as one of 50 Tours of Lifetime by the National Geographic Traveler - May 2011.

The cities, even sizable ones, are small enough so that a vigorous walk can provide many delightful memories. What we will remember most are the people that we met. Other passengers, Aussies, Kiwis, English, and German, were the best company possible.

Vintage coastal trading boats once delivered supplies to the islands off the 1,100-mile coastline. Repurposed to accommodate guests, these 20- to 40-passenger vessels now cruise Croatia at a more leisurely pace. Sailing weekly -- from Opatija in the northern Adriatic, the heart of the Kvarner Riviera and the ever fashionable seaside resort - from Split in central Dalmatia, from the pier located right in front of the 1,800-year-old Diocletian Palace - and from Dubrovnik in the south, the Pearl of the Adriatic. Direct daily flights are available from most major European gateways to all departure ports, as well as Zagreb, Capital city of Croatia.

A selection of 7-day cruises is available from early April until late October at fares ranging between EUR 310 - EUR 870 / $435 - $1,218 per person double occupancy, depending on the cabin, vessel and month, July and August being the most expensive. Combinations of two back-to-back cruises covering most of the coast are popular as well as the Tour-and-Cruise packages, starting from Zagreb.
