The ideal way to experience the stunning Dalmatian coastline - explore Croatia’s picturesque islands and historic coastal towns on an exclusively chartered cruise ship. This tours works it's way down the coast from Split to Dubrovnik, stopping on the way at Korcula, with its fortified Old Town known as "mini-Dubrovnik". After a couple of days enjoying the sights of Dubrovnik, the ship then makes it ways back up to Split, docking at Mljet - home to the stunning Mljet National Park, Hvar - known as the sunniest of the Croatian islands, and the less known but utterly delightful Solta on the way. In between stops, you’ll can soak up the sun from the deck of your elegant ship, enjoy beautiful swim stops and while away the afternoons watching the world go by (as well as feasting on plenty of authentic Dalmatian eats!).
