Dalmatian Coast & Montenegro

A cruise voyage unraveling the natural and ancient wonders of Dalmatia

7 Nights, 8 days, departing Sundays.

Why go: 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. 

In brief: Marco Polo 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. Actually, not a lot has changed 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 fabulous 16th century walled city of Dubrovnik. 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.
