Cruise and Stay - Grand Hotel Park
If you start your cruise in Dubrovnik, we use the four star Grand Hotel Park, overlooking a pool and gardens going down to the sparkling blue sea, a short cab ride away from the walls of the old town. Rooms here are very well appointed and there is a choice of restaurants. Don’t miss the old town though – it’s got a bit commercial of late, but the authorities are stopping some of the really big liners calling in, so the crowds are not as bad as they were. It’s a great place to sit and have a drink and people-watch.
