Explore the mountains, bays and islands of the Dalmatian Coast

Known for its breathtaking landscape, the Dalmatian Coast is at its best when seen from your smaller sized ship. As you cruise past the striking limestone cliffs covered in rich flora, you can view the untamed beauty of Mount Biokovo, Croatia from Balmoral. Nestled along the shimmering Adriatic Sea, the coastal gem of Split offers narrow streets, charming squares, and bustling markets. Meanwhile, you will cruise along the fjord-like waters of the Bay of Kotor, bordered by high peaks and a rocky shoreline with little villages by the water's edge. From Split, witness the picturesque church perched on an islet in Lake Bled's azure waters, as well as the cascading Krka Waterfalls. Join us on a tour of the charming coastal village of Cavtat to explore its red-roofed homes and cobblestone alleys; or visit the botanical gardens of Lokrum Island.
