Explore Stunning Croatian Islands

With a Croatia and Greece small-ship cruise, you’ll be able to visit islands with smaller ports those large vessels can’t reach, including remote Vis which has managed to retain its unspoiled nature. We recommend choosing a Croatia small ship journey onboard one of our Deluxe Balcony Ships. Itineraries on these luxury ships include the most extras, like tastings and expert-guided tours. Itineraries also include cosmopolitan Hvar, famous for its world-class restaurants and buzzing nightlife that attracts countless VIPs, including celebrities. It also boasts a captivating historic center and beautiful landscapes with vineyards, olive groves and lavender-covered hills, along with gorgeous beaches. Korcula is a favorite among many too, the birthplace of world explorer Marco Polo, with its storybook walled Old Town often called a “mini-Dubrovnik.”

Discover Impressive UNESCO-listed Cities like Dubrovnik and Split

Your Greece and Croatia cruise will also allow you to discover some of Croatia’s most impressive UNESCO-listed cities like medieval Dubrovnik, the so-called “Pearl of the Adriatic,” is especially romantic with its marble-paved streets lined with baroque palace and churches. It’s long-been a popular filming site bringing Hollywood stars like Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren who feel in love with the city and returned multiple times. More recently, HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” filmed many of the show’s scenes here. You’ll be able to walk atop the centuries-old stone defensive walls that encircle the historic center, enjoying views of the Adriatic and nearby islands on one side, with the beautiful buildings and red-tiled roofs on the other.

Split is famous for its 4th-century Roman emperor Diocletian’s Palace. The sprawling palace covers nearly half the historic center, a maze-like complex filled with ancient buildings that reveal influences by the the Greeks, Romans and Venetians. Today, many are used as unique shops, art galleries, restaurants, cafes and wine bars.
