Dalmatian Superior Cruise

Explore the stunning Dalmatian islands and Croatia coastline on a Deluxe Cruise

Don’t miss…

  • Marco Polo’s house on Korcula
  • The salt lakes at Mljet
  • Two nights in wonderful Dubrovnik
  • Peljesac, famous for its wines
  • Traditional Croatian village party
  • Hvar – the lavender island
  • Zlatni Rat beach (the Golden Cape)

This stunning coastline is off the charts as today’s most sought-after cruise destination. The waters are an amazing translucent blue, limestone walls gleam white in the sun under red tiled roofs and on the islands green pine trees dot the horizon. It’s mind-bogglingly beautiful. It’s also amazingly historic, with a legacy that dates back to classic Greek civilisation, Roman occupation, the Venetians (the great Marco Polo was born on Korcula), the Byzantine empire and beyond. All have left their legacies and we’ll get you up close and personal into tiny harbours on our small deluxe yachts.

This is a very classy way to travel – normally with a maximum of 38 guests in twin or double cabins with private facilities. It’s rather like an elegant country house party at sea with a daily change of scenery with the benefit of local knowledge to know where all the best photo-calls and watering holes are. We reckon it’s excellent value.

Optional Cruise & Stay

We sail in and out of Split, Croatia’s second largest city. It has some wonderful history dating back to the Palace of Diocletian, built by the eponymous Roman Emperor in the 4th Century. The remains of the Palace are well worth a visit as are the sprawling streets of the old city. The beaches are pretty good hereabout too, so if you fancy a night or two either pre- or post your cruise just ask – we know some good hotels.

Ports of call: Split - Korcula - Mljet - Dubrovnik - Peljesac Peninsula - Hvar - Bol - Split
