Split to Dubrovnik
One of the most popular Dalmatian coast cruises sails one way from the spectacular historic city of Split to the UNESCO listed, ancient walled city of Dubrovnik. The scenic route visits many of the idyllic archipelago islands for a unique and unforgettable island hopping experience.
Before you depart from Split, there is ample time to take a leisurely tour around one of Croatia’s most iconic attractions. The imposing Diocletian’s Palace is a majestic sprawling complex that features regal architectural structures, columns and sphinxes, as well as 200 buildings that include cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. Your coastal adventure continues with an excursion to Brac Island, where the white stone of Diocletian’s Palace was originally quarried, and offers an opportunity to swim and sunbathe on Croatia’s most photographed beach – Zlatni Rat (or Golden Cape).
The cosmopolitan island of Hvar is not only Dalmatia’s sunniest resort, but also boasts historic, cultural and entertainment options that are highly popular with royalty and A-list celebrities. From Hvar, join a guided excursion to the phenomenal natural attraction that you can discover on the nearby island of Bisevo. Return to the cruise, via Vis Island and continue to Korcula Island, the birthplace of the world explorer Marco Polo.
No relaxing sightseeing in Dalmatia cruise would be complete without a visit to a beautiful National Park. En route to the final stop in Dubrovnik, visit the breathtaking Mljet National Park and admire jewel coloured lakes and gorgeous flora and fauna, and hop aboard a boat to St Mary’s Isle.
