Don’t miss…

  • Split and Trogir
  • The old Roman town of Rab
  • Sibenik and the Krka National Park
  • The medieval Venetian ambience of Hvar
  • The wonderful walled town of Korcula
  • The stunning beauty of the fjord at Kotor
  • The historic glory of Kotor Town

The translucent waters and many historic islands of this beautiful coastline make for one of the hottest cruising destination on earth just now – it’s a classic ‘must see’ for any serious cruise fan. Marco Polo, who’s house you can visit on Korcula, knew this route along the east coast of the Adriatic Sea like the back of his hand. That was 800 years ago, and in many respects not a lot has changed in terms of the crystal-clear waters, and the pine forests that march up the hills and mountainsides.

That means it’s been much the same since medieval days and the real delight of this itinerary is the opportunity to discover some absolutely fantastic historical delights, from the Roman Palace of Diocletian in Split to the tiny medieval backstreets of Kotor. It’s all rather like being in a fairy-tale, with the added bonus of dropping anchor in a secluded bay or five for a swim-stop.

Ports of call: Dubrovnik – Split – Rab – Sibenik – Hvar – Korcula – Kotor - Dubrovnik

Optional Cruise & Stay

We sail in and out of the drop-dead-gorgeous medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, but if you want to explore its multi-layered history, and walk around the walls, (or if you’re a Game of Thrones fan) you’ll really need a night or two either pre- or post your cruise. Our partner 4 star Grand Hotel Park is perfectly placed for access to the old town or the Dubrovnik Riviera.

Take time to see stunning Dubrovnik and its lively seaside by extending your stay, for two nights before or after your cruise, at the 4 star Grand Hotel Park on bed & breakfast basis, with transfers.
