Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

This Adriatic cruise has been designed for you to enjoy two days in beautiful Croatia, giving you ample opportunities to explore Diocletian’s Palace or the picturesque Krka Waterfalls, and walk the Walls of Dubrovnik, which have protected the city for centuries. Kotor is reached via a scenic cruise along the tranquil fjord-like Bay of Kotor and is well-placed for marvelling at scenic Lovćen National Park and its majestic mountains. Join us as we explore the charming coastal village of Cavtat, with its cobblestoned streets and red-roofed houses, and immerse yourself in the Dalmatia way of life by indulging in local cuisines such as fresh seafood, brodet and prosciutto, or enjoying local dishes in a family run, intimate restaurant known as a konoba, while experiencing traditional folk, Klapa and Tamburica music.

The Dalmatia Way of life

Shaped by its rich heritage and culture, life in the Dalmatians has a strong connection with the sea, with fishing and maritime activities playing significant roles. Seafood here is freshly caught, and locally grown produce, such as olive oil, is widely featured, with dishes like pasticada and peka demonstrating the region's culinary expertise. Gatherings are often centered around food, local customs, and music, such as Klapa, which you can experience on a tour to a local family's house, and witness how they produce grape brandy, olive oil, and wine using traditional processes.
